    Went out tonight and noticed that when going in and out of first or reverse the gear is shaking a lot. Just started. Used to be smooth. Feels like my whole leg is shaking.

    Going to bring it for service but wanted to see if anyone else had or is having a similar issue.

    Thanks...

    Sounds like you melted the clutch, from all the burnouts:confused:








    just kidding, hope you figure it out.

    I'd agree but I've been gentle :). I mean I've had fun but nothing stupid. It goes in next Friday (first appt.). Just the first gear & reverse are having issues. Shifting in all other gears are fine. I would think if the clutch was bad all the gears would have an issue. But who knows.

    I'll post once I know what they do.

    Good to know. What was your issue and how long did it take them to fix? I have 602 miles on my car.

    Keep us updated... These clutches dont like to be slipped too much when hammering on the car. Also, dont hot lap it at the track if you do go... Wait 45 -60 minutes between runs.

    Thanks. I did baby it at the track. No issues and I had to drive an hour plus back with construction traffic.

    When you get the next clutch give it 500 miles of stop and go traffic driving and DONT hammer on it. Hard to do, but it makes a HUGE difference in the durability of the clutch.

    Thanks for the advice. Maybe I :"played" too much during the break-in period. I thought I was somewhat gentle though.

    There is no guaranteed way to ensure a stock clutch is going to live... Kinda hard mixing being able to hold our power levels with drivability. Especially factoring in a 4500+lb car.
