Clutch Chatter

  1. Clutch chatter started around 200 miles and is getting worse. Anyone else notice this condition?
  2. Usually giving it a lot more gas will help. I barely notice it when I drive them now. If its getting worse, maybe there is something wrong with it.
  3. That's what I was looking for - if someone else noticed the chatter. Thanks!

    Since your car has more HP, how do you get it to hookup?
  4. Suspect is the throw-out bearing. It is nearly impossible to put it in backwards without noticing. There are long and short throw-out bearings. If you put in a bearing that was shorter than the one intended for the clutch, you would have exactly the situation you described..
  5. Wrong throw-out from the factory?
  6. it took me a couple hundred miles to figure out where exactly it engages....maybe you are halfway in, halfway out? these clutches are soo much lighter than the termy cobras......
  7. I have been having the same problem. I got it figured out is just so much different than my termi. It engages way much later in the travel.

  8. The clutch chatter is normal, and I believe they even state that in the owners manual. I have pretty much figured out a way to drive it so it doesn't chatter anymore though. I think with some more gear it would be almost non existant.
  9. :Word:
