    and on topic, i fucking hate it.
    it's so loud, vibrating, clunky, impossible to drive smooth.

    250 miles in to the break in, it's not getting any better.

    i miss my stock clutch that slipped :/

    It is great for road racing. Never noticed when an open exhaust, full throttle with a helmet on. :p

    its still breaking in. give it some time/miles.

    plus its a heavier duty clutch rated for more torque. you cant expect it to feel like grandma's civic. adjust your driving style.

    Chatter is to be expected on a new clutch. Particularly a beefier one. Feather it more.

    I try to... there's just no grey area. it's either engaged or its not. i also don't want to glaze it by letting it slip a lot

    Don't bother riding in my car. It has lots of rattles and shakes due to the motor mounts lol

    but those are SUPPOSED to shake the car. a clutch is not.

    it's a LITTLE better than it was, at 350 miles now... but it's still not "good"

    550 on it now. it's starting to get a little better. still rattles more than i would like it to on no-throttle deceleration in the 2-3k range and it's still quite touchy in 1st with choppy/chatter, nearly stall, or pull your face off grip. Worse, it's inconsistent and any of those 3 may happen at any time. Hoping it clears up a bit more

    Or give it some extended slipping. To even out the mating surfaces.

    I don't think I ever wanted a rattle box.

    I dig the grip and the bite, just wish it was a little better in first gear

    well, not rattlebox. but clutch that was super grabby and made it feel like we were doing leg extension exercise. circa 1999 of course.

    Wouldn't extended slipping cause it to glaze the clutch face?
