how do you actually break-in a clutch? rpm limit? is cruising on freeway at 3500 ok? can you give your car some gas thru the gears even though you are not high-revving?

variation is key. DONT stay at any one rpm. bring it up and down . if you're on the highway a lot, cruise between 55 and 75 back and forth, and hit 4th from time to time.

DON'T launch on it hard or try to power shift. usually 200 miles is good enough

I drove easy on mine and would do a few pulls on mine when I got it, and now it grabs and makes the car jerk under normal driving. Did I do somethign wrong? This is ProClutch 2200PP an organic disc.... <_<

EDIT: If I try to, I can make it not jerk, but I have to make a conscious effort to do so. and it doesnt seem to be jerky like that if I take the rpms to, say 4.5K and shift. only on low rpm shifts.
