    Breaking in a Clutch

    Is this really needed? My car isn't drivable without a tune, but it really needs a clutch before it can take the power I've added, so yeah. Can I just not "break in" a clutch?

    What does breaking in a clutch do anyway?

    Breaking in a clutch allows the clutch disc to deposit friction material on the pressure plate and flywheel. This is really only necessary with aftermarket performance clutches, such as ceramic and kevlar discs. Conventional clutch discs (such as stock) do not require a specific break in or break in period.
