SPEC Clutch!!!! ARG!!!!!!!!!!

I just put a SPEC Stage 1 clutch in my car. I had bought the whole kit with the pilot bearing and the TOB. The clutch now has 400 miles on it, and the TOB is already chirpin like a cricket..... Totally uncalled for. Seriously. The clutch sucks really bad. First gear is a joke because the car can't stop hopping around because the clutch decides to chatter like no other. Bad idea to buy a SPEC clutch. Never again!!

Yup and the stock cables tend to stretch.......sounds like an adjustment issue.

Re: SPEC Clutch!!!! ARG!!!!!!!!!!

WOW is all I can say in defense of SPEC my stage 3 showed me the error of my ways and that my king cobra sucked ass being in a blower car we picked 31 more horse at the wheels with this and some more torque but cant remember exact numbers it is late and I am tired.

Does sound like and adjustment issue.

Re: SPEC Clutch!!!! ARG!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah, I have the steeda quadrant, adj. cable and the firewall adjuster. I have it set so the TOB is 1/4 in. or so away from the pressure plate. Idk, cheap TOB im guessing.
