    Hi all, I thought I'd check my pedal settings, as I had it done by a garage who changed my clutch recently (they also fitted a slave cylinder (aftermarket I think judging by the price they charged for the part). The Adjustments where some way out, pedal height at 190mm from the bulkhead and...

    Hi all. New to the forum and hoping someone might be able to shed a little light on an issue with my Mk 2.5 (54 plate, around 100k on the clock).

    So my clutch gave up yesterday. So I'm wondering if there is a better option than the OEM for drifting. I'm still running standard power but going to FI in a year or 2. My initial though was a paddle that the FI guys use as it'll take more abuse.

Took the flywheel off to do the bearing, all went well, but when I disengage the clutch in neutral, it makes a similar noise like before.
