    First of all how many miles were on the clutch before you started hamering on it. Five hundred easy miles is recomended. Is it a cutom built or a store bought? If you have done the break in correctly you might have a leaking rear main seal. No matter if the clutch is glazed or the rear main is leaking you will have to pull the clutch to fix the problem. After you take it out inspect the rear main and the clutch. If the rear main is not leaking contact the company that you purchased the clutch from and try to get it swaped out. Hope this helps you can pm me if you have any more questions. good luck.

    yes u have to give it some time to break in. When i first got my new clutch installed the mechanic told me to go easy for about 500 miles until it breaks in.
