    RE: clutch shoes

    The performance of your Clutch is a Big Clue......Does it work well?
    Visually,,,,,
    A little discoloration is to be expected....
    Check for badly or un-evenly worn shoes or worn/out of shape holes where the Spring goes into the shoe.
    Check the springs for uniformity. If they are bent out of shape,,,,toss em.
    Check the flywheel while you're at it....Bent pins are not good.
    Check the clutch bell. Does it WOBBLE very much at all, especially when you Spin it? It Shouldnt if the bearings are good.
    The shims inside the clutch bell should be flat and not mis-shappen.
    The inside of the clutchbell should be pretty smooth, If it is rough or gouged, it will eat up your clutchshoes Real fast, (or worse, it might bind and fail catastrophically).

    Lol....I THINK that covers it.....

    Well, the best clutch bell u can get is a 13/18T HPI clutch bell with the RS4 Teflon clutch. You won't have to worry about the flywheel, unless you have deep pockets.

    First ....What car do you have....lol
    Second....Most folks here will tell you it is a BAD idea to convert to a 2 speed tranny, for a Variety of reasons.....
    Third...If you Really decide that you MUST do this....we can talk you through it, but I dont think you will be happy with the Process OR the results....
