Burnt Clutch

I just discoverd drag racing at my local track. So far I love it and wont to go everyday I've also discovered how hard it is on a stock car. I only went twice and my clutch is toast (I think).

After you get that nasty burnt clutch smell does it really mean your clutch is done? I've heard different things from different people.

I've already ordered a cc stage 2 clutch kit and cc light wieght flywheel just becuase it was a good deal ($470 shipped for both). Well it was the best deal I could find. Maybe you guys can find better.

I know the cc stage 2 clutch is not a drag or racing clutch but will it hold up better then oem(mostly street a little drag)? For the price difference it should, but I know thats not always the case.


BTW My 1/8 mile time was 9.6

Sounds like you ran in low on fluid. But yes running the car hard on the track will take its toll on your car, unless you maintain it well. If you want to keep on at the track I recommend getting yourself a kevlar clutch disc. There is a break in period so you will have to lay off the track for a while until it gets broke in.

Re: Burnt Clutch

nah you clutch isn't completely toast, just because you smelled it, doesn't mean it's gone lol, it's just a little more worn. I remember my friend had a civic, the clutch was so worn out that when he'd let off it to start in first, it wouldn't grab at all and it would just stall out haha

Lol, yeah I dont want that to happen. My new clutch should be in this week. The only problem is I dont want to pay to have it installed. That way I lose $$ and dont learn anything. I dont have the know how to do it myself though.

stop abusing your car man...seriously.

Having it done will probably be the best money you ever spent. I changed my own on my third Gen wasn't that hard but I pulled the engine and tranny together out of the car. I had to replace the motor due to the previous owner ran it with no oil and broke the # 2 rod and shot it thru the front of the motor. But our 5th Gens, I have heard something about having to unbolt the sub frame. Now I don't know about you but that sounds like too much work for just having ramps instead of having a lift. Also if you have it done at a shop they have to get it right or they will have to do it again. You mess up and your stuck with it. Make sence?

Yeah it makes sence. I have a really good local mec. I didnt know how to change my rotors and pads so I took it to him. While he was changing them he let me watch, help, and explained how it was done. Next time I can do them myself. He will probably do the same if I take my clutch and flywheel there.


So reading through other forums on clutch replacement Ive seen you need to replace the rear main seal on the transmission. Is there anymore seals that should be changed while its all apart?
