A few months ago my clutch went and was slipping like mad. I decided to take the time to upgrade and got a spec 2 clutch. when it fist went it in thought omg this is a whole new ballgame.. it was all go or no go, griped like a mofo. i was a bit worried at the same time, nj is not a stick friendly place, tones of traffic and really nasty hills with stop signs and people that ride your rear. anywho... after a few days it lost its supergrip all go or no go attitude and felt much more like my old clutch, it could slide into gear and every once in awhile had no problems holding on a hill for a few seconds. it still grips like a mofo too if its engaged though, if i punch it the wheels spin, not the clutch like the old one buuuuuuut recently 1st and reverse have began to be really touchy. on normal acceleration used to pull the car in or out of parking spots or moving up in bumper traffic the it seems to be reallly choppy. i think its what people call chattering? not really sure. it almost wants to stall sometimes you have to gas it, but then it starts to really move, something you dont want in tight quarters for obvious reasons. is an adjustment needed or is this something normal for better then stock clutchs?
i worry now because my cars in the shop right now getting heads, intake, cam etc, and will be quite more of a car to handle, and im thinking this might make the clutch problem that much more of a handling problem.
