Had a bit of a mechanical issue
Pressure plate failure


Started out I noticed a slight vibration in the clutch pedal the next day started slipping
Pulled it apart and found half the pressure plate fingers had collapsed due to a break in the structure
Ended up damaging the flywheel as pressure was being applied unequally
At least RMS and IMS look good


Still original IMS with 102500km
Decided to put in new RMS and LN IMS


Also doing new flywheel clutch AOS plugs fluids driveshaft guibo tranny mounts
might as well while I'm in there

It's really too bad the the DMFW can't be re-surfaced cheaply. When I had my LN IMS/clutch job done I almost went with a Aasco LWFW but my track/street Audi has one and I thought it might better serve me to have a more daily friendly clutch such as the oem one. Glad I did.

Did you buy a good condition used or new FW ?

All brand new Porsche pieces
Flywheel is definitely pricey
I'm lucky though as I get it wholesale price

Picked up some hollow spoke Turbo Twists, looking forward to spring to try them out and to see if I can feel the weight reduction from the stock C4S Twists
Will need some tires as well

Pete you can feel a slight difference in acceleration with the hollow spokes, the solids are quite heavy. Problem is mounting heavy r comps... I have both and experimented with all types of road and track tires on each set. I found mine on craigslist for $500 about 5 years ago. Did you get a good deal?

I got them for $600 CDN, or $435 in Greenbacks, so good deal I would say

EBC RED pads, new discs, and stainless lines are on, definitely feel an improvement in braking and brake pedal feel

12000 km = 7500 miles! Why are you only getting that low miles out of them? Are you running them until the "wear bars"? Is it aggressive driving, track driving?

That's pretty normal for a 220 tread wear rating tire,
I'm not sure the PS2s are supposed to last much longer than that, no track driving, just daily driving
I guess I could be wrong, what should I be getting on the rears?

Your car is way cooler than mine.... nice build. You have everything I wanted to do when I bought mine however maintenance bills keep getting in the way of modding

*Getting married last month didn't help either
