    Sounds exactly like clutch chatter.

    Some of that can be expected with high performance clutches, especially Stage 3 and above.

    Usually it happens during the break in period and then smooths out.

    Its not doing any damage, its just the disc chattering as its grabbing against the pressure plate and flywheel.

    I'd give it until about 1,000 miles to fully break in.

    Yes, it will still be grabby, thats the nature of a Stage 3. They are mostly meant for track use, not driving in traffic. So you just have to adjust your driving style to suit the clutch, it took my friend a while to master the Fidanza stage 4 in his car.

    How is the clutch in general? I was planning on buying one myself but havent heard anyone that had one. Does it feel like a on/off switch?
    Also a friend of mine told me that prior to installing the clutch to apply powder chalk from a chalk line, and that it was supposed to help with the chatter of an aggressive clutch.
    Does that Monster stage 3 let you roll out the clutch at least a little?
