So today me and a friend of mine are starting to tackle the job of the clutch install. Took off the pypes, disconnected the starter and batt, took the shaft out, got the black bar out from under the tranny, bolts off the tranny, shifter is out, and got the flywheel and clutch out. Super easy job, took me and my friend hour and 30min yes no joke lol. Just need some extensions but basic hand tools and a impact. I ordered the clutch on fri morning so hopefully it's here by thurs. tomorw I will be getting the flywheel resurfaced

Idk maybe if its easy to put back on. It was actually easy to take off because the top bolt wasn't screwed all the way in

Just one from autozone. Just a quick grab and one to play with the other clutch was still good but the pilot and throw out bearings were shot

I got the excedy stage 1 with the ford racing pilot bearing and it was total of like 250 plus the forum discount so like 235. It feels a little more stiffer but not by alot compared to the one it had. Can't complain at all

It's too bad the Autocross is temporarily cancelled. I'd love to see how your cobra does!

Don't forget to break it in properly. It will grab more consistently and last longer if you do. I think it was 750 miles of city driving. Glad to hear you did the install yourself. Saves a ton of money!

The same people that kicked the karters out, want UFO to renegotiate their terms for the use of the location. But they seem to think it will be back on the 24th of February(fingers crossed).

Things like clutch dumps and hard launches. I stayed under 3000RPM for mine until about 500 miles. I didn't do any hard shifting either, you know, where you are clutching real quick. Once I got to 750-800 I started gradually getting on it all out. I hear some people don't break'em in at all, but I figured if I didn't, something stupid would happen. Lol
