Hey everyon, i just got an rps stage 3 and fidanza flywheel installed and damn is there a difference, i only have 13g's and my friend has 357's and i swear my car pulls way harder than his all around. anyways first i just wanted to say thanx to brian for taking care of my car while i was gone, now comes my question. after talking to a few people i have come to realize that the "chatter" you get when breaking it in is dissapating but not gone. will this "chatter" as its been called by a few be gone completely? ive driven it about 500 miles now since i had to drive back to school in AZ and there is still a little present. also why is it squeling a little while idling, i konw its the clutch because if i rest my foot on it (very gently) the noise goes away? thanx again brian

the squealing noise from the clutch sounds like the throwout bearing -- you did change it w/ the clutch/flywheel, right?

I had just about NO chattering whatsoever from mine -- maybe for the first 100 miles, but that's it.

hey roger

hey roger so the rps cluch makes a difference hugh!!! i cant wait to get my car back from brian. So how is school up at asu? Did you fix your compression problem? anyway i am still without my car so i have not been up to phx lately but i should be getting it back within this month. i cant wait. anyway i tried to call you a couple of times but got no answer, i was up that way a little while ago to visit some chick and i was wondering what you were up to. anyway i am out here in san diego right now i should be back in az in about a week or so.. You said thanks to brian for taking care of your car while you were gone. what did you mean by that? i was thinking of having him hold it for me for a while when i go away in Jan. How long did he take care of it for you. anyway i just had some questions for ya.

talk to you later

I just drove my car last night for the first time with the F Flywheel, and rpsIII. The clutch is crazy tight!

My rpsII chattered for 1000 miles.

Your squeeling sound IS the throw out bearing.

I got mine at 3sx. I don't remember how much. The throw out bearing is something you gotta get from the dealer. They are about $35

Good to hear that while it's tight it's still daily drivable. I'm waiting for my group buy RPS III and flywheel to come in (Hans, any day now right?), and was dreading that I had made a mistake regarding the drivability of the clutch.

thanx guys
I'm pretty sure that you basically have to take off the clutch again to change the throwout bearing ---- I'd be calling up GTPro quick and asking them what the deal with it is --- it should definitely have been changed when the clutch was changed; I'd be hopping mad if I was you.

My RPS III also has a little more pressure than stock, but is still definitely daily driver material.
