    Stage 3 Sachs 6 puck clutch from Flawdaboi on here. I bought it used.
    I'm just waiting for the new one to get in, and I'm gonna have my flywheel resurfaced.

    And I was working out all the bugs before I put the interior back in.

    Ouch - was that with a stock 215mm clutch? I've run a stage 1 in my car without any issues for the past 3 years, but I have to admit I'm not doing 4th gear burnouts - sure the occasional skid, but nothing that extreme ;)

    A Stage 3 will easily hold the torque - but then other things will probably break.

    Seems like the only logical thing.

    Great work on the 318 ti drive shaft though! Get photo bucket or something so we can see them pics!

    That does sound like a burnt out clutch. Is the crabbing like a chudder?

    I was at a dead stop and had the Shifter in 2nd, revved it hard and dumped the clutch.
    Was burning out and then shifted to 3rd, and still burning out, shifted to 4th, bounced the rev limiter. Then let off and coasted down the hill. Once at the bottom of the hill I had no power but the clutch would crab somewhat then nothing...

    That's all I could find in a short google search. Looks like it works with the m20 and m40.

    And yeah I'm running the 215mm flywheel.
    How do I remedy the situation if that is it? Just replace it? Or bleed the system?

    And the driveline works like a fucking champ.
    Describe the run through gears scenario again. But with more detail. Like if the car is running, any noises, etc.

    Clutch depressed.

    Any thoughts? I think I just used what little meat was left on the clutch pads..
    So what you are saying is that the drive shaft works great! Jk.

    Which clutch was it that you got from flawdboi? Are you running the 215mm setup?

    I would imagine that if you fused the clutch to the flywheel, the gears would still grind like hell trying to shift through them. I think you probably have a clutch cylinder not fully allowing the flywheel to engage.

    It won't let me upload my pics from my iPhone. Do I need to put them on photobucket or tiny pic or something?
    See if apple gets tapatalk. Pay the 3 bucks and they will host it for you.
