    R needs a clutch, replace anything else while it's in the shop?

    Holy crap is right, I'd never even heard of something like that happening before.

    R needs a clutch, replace anything else while it's in the shop?

    Following up on this real quick to show why I needed a new clutch. The pressure plate cracked into 3 pieces after doing a light launch at around 4K. It’s a southbend kit so I’m pretty surprised to see this happen. Not sure how many miles we’re on it but couldn’t be more than 50k.

    R needs a clutch, replace anything else while it's in the shop?

    Yeah the more I thought about it the more I figured I might as well, especially for resale value when a potential buyer looks at the paperwork and maintenance. I had the shop order the iAbed RMS along with the DKM Stage 2 kit.

    R needs a clutch, replace anything else while it's in the shop?

    Maybe I haven't read enough but I haven't seen many complaints about the stock RMS. Most of what I've seen is if it's not leaking, leave it alone. I have an APR catch can setup and I've read a clogged PCV causes most of the RMS issues so if that's actually the case then I should be ok.

    R needs a clutch, replace anything else while it's in the shop?

    Not planning on an LSD, I'll be at the track for autox or open lap days only a couple times a year so it's not worth the expense to me.

    R needs a clutch, replace anything else while it's in the shop?

    That's what my mechanic was saying about the RMS also, if it's not leaking then leave it alone. I already have the ECS bleeder block and I think the clutch line has been replaced as well. Sounds like there isn't much else to look at around the trans, mounts are already upgraded too.

    R needs a clutch, replace anything else while it's in the shop?

    Hey all, my 2016 R just blew its clutch at 56k and is going into the shop for a new one. While it's there is there anything else I should have replaced? I've read rear main seal since the trans is out and also the water pump is usually due around this time. Anything else to look at?

    Any experience with Brembo Xtra Rotors and Low-Met pads kit?

    Not saying that the stock setup isn't fine, was more just curious if anyone has any experience with these pads in particular. The rotors are of course more for looks than performance, especially for a novice track day driver, but just wanted to see if there were any reviews out there for their...

    Random intro thread

    Finally getting around to uploading a few pics of the new car, put about 1300 miles on it from the road trip and get very well acquainted with the car. The APR stage 1 pulls really hard, super satisfied with that tune on this thing. First tweaks will be satin silver mirror caps, a set of...

Definitely bummed out on not getting try out some TX roads but 30...
