    clutch problems

    tonight took my car to the track. launched pretty good, a little bit of wheelspin, caught second, went to shift to third and it wasnt there... i couldnt get it in any gear for a couple minutes. the pedall was stuck down on the floor. i sat down at the start of the return lane for about a minute before my clutch started to come back. it took another 30 seconds or so before i could get it into any gear.

    i replaced the fluid in it about a week ago, it was nasty black. i mity vac'd it 13 inches of vacuum pumped the clutch a couple times, no bubbles or anything.


    i did just put headers on, someone said they heat up the fluid when drivin hard. any thoughts on fixin it.

    The drill mod will make the bigger difference on clutch performance, but you can also wrap some heat wrap around the master cylinder line

    yeah do some heat wrap and to be honest forget the drill mod and get the Tick performance master cylinder you WONT regret it on of my best mods, i had a problem kinda simular to that but mine was hard to get into gear and i had a broken spring on my clutch disk but i dont think thats your problem, Tick master clyinder FTW about $350 shipped


    Owning a 9 sec ricer is like coming out of the closest: at first you'll surprise everyone, but in the end you're still gay
