Was yesterday, but witnessed my clutch slip for the first time, after 60k miles. Limped it home and put it in the garage.

Thanks! I’ll check the diameter….I have an old Cjm mount in my garage somewhere

If you have a 3D printer, or know someone who does, there's a few your can print out as well.

What clutch kit have you been running?

how'd it happen exactly? my ACT clutch slipped pretty good back in January (got a little too excited in 6th gear on the freeway, lol) and it's been fine since, still holding on every pull

I wonder if I could get away with just getting a new disc ? Or play it safe and just get another whole kit? Kind of upset cuz I was really close to getting a 3076R, and MPI setup. Also a LPFP from StorableComa. Now I have to wait.

Also concerned because of how odd the slip is. Like press gas and it goes for a second, hesitates for a second, goes again, hesitates a second time for a split second and then finally gave me the sauce and the accel hit like I used RAL, but I didnt. No log sadly, and can't go take one until I get fresh tires on the rear. They are bald somehow and I swear 2 weeks ago they looked fine.

Was the gear indicator in the MFD disappearing when it happened?

I had the same problem. Look one day and all is good. Drive home in a rain storm a couple days later and holy fishtail batman. Luckily only had ro wait 2 days for replacements. Didn't drive it those days for obvious reasons.

Yes it was lol, except this time the slip is worse and the gear indicator disappeared for a split second. I watched the tach hang at 3k and 4k. IDK if driving will help it or not. I need rear tires before I try that though. Last time is was around 300 miles before it was back to normal.

Maybe they rebuild them?

When I pulled my transmission for a rear main seal replacement, I really didn’t want to put a worn clutch back in. Southbend was able to rebuilt the pressure plate, flywheel, and I just bought a new disc. Total was about $500 compared to a $1500 new price tag.
