    What, exactly, does a break-in period for a clutch entail?

      It was a 10 minute explanation from Curt.

      I can't say I remember the whole thing but these are the parts I remember a little.

      1) No trips to the drag stip.
      2) No dropping the clutch at 9000 RPM.
      3) No burn outs.
      4) No hard launches.


      Many other things that are normally conducted by red car drivers that apparently increase clutch temp.

      Soooooo


      I am pretending that I have a silver car. I am granny shifting at 2000 RPM.

                ^^ It's the bingo part that is wrong, man. It's gambling. Gambling is terribly sinful.

                  Granny shifting definition

                  Granny shifting is also called short shifting. It's when you shift at low RPM's. Double clutching is completely different. It's a method used on transmissions without synchronizers. You have to step on the clutch , shift out of gear, release the clutch, then step on the clutch again, blip the throttle and shift into gear at the same time.

                    What is granny shifting - Answers.com

                    www.answers.com › WikiAnswers ®CategoriesUncategorized
                    Apr 15, 2018 · Granny shifting is changing up gears before (roughly) 6000rpm. Its how most people would drive on a daily basis, but in street racing the rpm is pushed as high as possible to get the extra power output on the upchange of the gears. another definition is changing gears before hitting the red zone on the tachometer.

                      Isn't that pretty much redline in many cars?

                        Yes. Shifting before redline = granny shifting.

                        I am am still in the break in period. From there I will move toward the break it period and then move back into the fix it period .

                          How do you manage to go through both tires and clutches like there's no tomorrow? I've never seen you burn out or even chirp in second, never seen you go sideways on a turn, and never seen you go over 100! What gives, man? Do you rev match on downshift?

                            I am not sure about all the reasons I tend to go though tires and clutches. I think one of the reasons is that I have more power and torque than most NA S2000's. Even without a turbo I have some special mods that increase torque on the drive train.

                            I like sticky tires because they cover my driving mistakes and keep me out of trouble. That means that my RE 71Rs don't last long.

                            My driving style is hard on the drive train.

                            Its a red car.

                            407 miles, Just a little longer.......

                                The clutch has passed its 500 mile break in period and everything is going smoothly. I am going to transition back to my normal driving habits . Mods please close the thread.
