Default i just got my clutch put in . . .

on my b16a2 .... and lemme say somthin HOLLY **** what a differnce . anyways i was wondering what is the break in mileage 500 or 300???

and i was wondering i shift i was wondering like when i race with this clutch it seems like it could do some damage to like my axles or my motor mounts if i were to shift really hard

has anyone had any problems with installing a clutch and then racing it and it messed up anything?

1500 miles....damn thats kinda high the brake in for lsd is like 800. i dont think you have to wait 1500 miles on it. And yes those could do damage to your car, but you have a stage2 not no 6 puck heavy duty perssure plate....so you should be just fine

When I put in my CenterForce Dual Friction I waited about 600 miles before using it hard. It has held up great .... going on a year and a half now.

you have to adjust to it...most of the time if its jerky its the driver. try feathering it

ive heard about 500 for break in periods

You heard wrong. Either they will break in properly or they wont. If the rings do not break in properly it will smoke. If it is broke in properly it will not smoke and the motor will last for a long time.

It's called a break in period for a reason... to be treated fragile not to be **** on while racing.
