Took the goat out for a stroll and did a launch from 2000 rpm's and when I went to shift to second the damn clutch was on the floor. So I shut it down and was greeted by the sweet smell of clutch. the clutch came back up slowly and i found this piece on my floor board.



What is this piece and by the way, it's broken?

It looks like a blurry black piece of plastic to me.

My *guess* would be it might be a floormat holder thingy?

'Zactly.

Bot that's connected directly to the clutch.

Your clutch is not long for this world though. I had that happen in both my Corvette Z06 and my GTO. I never replaced the GTO's clutch, but I did a Spec 2 in the Z06 and it was great. Some are saying the C6 Z06 clutch works real good too.

Just a guess, once that starts happening you have about 20,000 easy miles before you need to do a clutch. If your hard on it, or the car is really modded you will get about 4-5,000 miles and it will get progressively worse.

Yeah, I guess I'll take it by the dealer tomorrow to have them look at it. My car only has 9800 miles and I'm not hard on it at all.

Yeah, sorry about that. I took at least ten pics and my camera just wouldn't focus.

How much did your Centerforce clutch set you back, if you don't mind me asking?
