GMM Race and Centerforce DF Clutch Installed

I'm in drivetrain heaven, baby. Tight clutch and tighter, positive shifting. Just put on new meats as well, Goodyear F1 GS-D3s. Sweet.

Oh, and the comparison threads between the B&M and GMM are pointless...it's like comparing a Chevy Aveo and an Aston-Martin V8 Vantage.

If you are referring to the large rubber boot bolted to the tunnel, I have the white one...and yes.

Sorry, I was talking about the black rubber dust cover. Or at least I think thatís what it is. GMM didn't say anything about putting it back on.

Oh, that.

No....I don't think so. I had it installed at the same time I got a clutch installed...two birds and all that.

Just wondering. I've got to figure out a way to try and quiet it down. Just haven't had the time.

Did you need to replace the clutch or was it just a perf. upgrade? You know, I dont think you are going to get the same mileage out of the F1's as you did the Pilot Sports but the handling should be much better. I put down a patch in the parking lot (yes, here is the a$$hole again abusing my car ~ take a suck of my armpit) at work when I left today, and the mark left by those is really cool. Unlike the "other" tires that leave a striped mark these leave a solid black swath and grip like gangbusters. The BFG's were quiet when they turned over but these mama jamma's howl like a biotch on the blacktop.

The clutch was a "might as well" moment and a feel thing...with 68k miles on my car the OEM was getting soft. No failure yet, but I had the money so "might as well".

Just drove home with the GS-D3s...WOW. Grippy indeed.

You'll love the Centerforce!! Was I correct on the added pedal effort? We just finished a LS7 clutch install and it went flawlessly..... stock feel as well.
