Default Horrible Clutch Shudder

Right, I put in a new clutch on my b20 when I did the swap. It's just a replacement clutch kit and I got th flywheel resurfaced. When the clutch is cold, it takes of smooth like butter, but after driving for a while after stop and starts when I take off in 1st, the whole car shakes, it's like I'm getting wheel hop. There isn't more than 6,000km's on it. Any ideas?

Is it grabbing off the floor? If it is bleed the system properly. If it isn't bleed the system properly. If you have air in the system when it gets hot it will expand and foul up the clutch system. An example would be the clutch grabbing off the floor and the car shuddering.

Nope. It's grabbing from the same spot whether it be cold or hot. Thanks for the reply though!

Try bleeding it. There isnt much else that would cause your problem aside from a very worn out clutch disc. Plus bleeding it is easy, cheap, and a good place to start when you have a clutch problem. Its kind of a standard catch all for clutch problems. And its pretty likely that you may have introduced air into your clutch system via the slave cylinder when your replaced the clutch. If you bleed it and still have the problem then you at least ruled something out that is cheap to check.

Bled the system, there was no air in it at all. Either I muffed up the break in period, or the clutch disk is just so crap that when it gets hot it just warps.

You didnt use some random ebay brand did you? Such as xrt or f1 racing? If so they usually last about 3 months before they turn to crap. Some people have had success with them but it almost seems that the quality depends on what day they were made on. Mondy or friday they are crap but tuesday-thursday seem to be ok. Lol Good luck with it. Hope you get it fixed.

Figured I'd bump this because I know in a few months or years someone will have this same problem, search and find this thread.

Took off the pressure plate, and well, all the torsion springs on the clutch disk were loose and I mean really loose.

That's definitely the problem.

Pick up an Exedy OEM replacement clutch kit for around $130 or so. Been using mine for nearly 3 years and 20K miles now and no problems at all.

It was a BBP Tuner Stage 1 and it was purchased on eBay.

Wrd man, that's exactly what I picked up! Putting it all back together this Friday with the GSR trans too.
