    clutch HELP NEEDED!!!!

    I HAVE AN ACT SIX PUCK CLUTCH KIT ON MY '02 WRX, FOR ABOUT A YEAR NO PROBLEMS.... RECENTLY I STARTED TO HAVE SOME PROBLEMS WITH IT:
    ON 2ND GEAR AND UP WHEN ACCELERATING FROM LOW RPMS (2000, 2500)
    THE CLUTCH WAS SLIPPING FOR ABOUT 500 RPMS AND THERE WAS AN ANNOING SHAKING TO THE FRONT OF THE CAR (ENTIRE COCPIT WAS "JUMPING") THE CAR WAS NEVER IN AN ACCIDENT SO IT IS NOT BAD REASSEMBLY OF PARTS LIKE COCPIT.

    TODAY I STARTED THE ENGINE DROVE FOR ABOUT 2 BLOCKS AND THE PEDAL FELT IN AND STAYED ON THE FLOOR, NO MORE CLUTCH
    ANYONE KNOWS WHAT COULD IT BE ??
    AND DOES ANYONE KNOW ANY GOOD SHOP IN NYC QUEENS OR BROOKLYN?
    PLEASE HELP WITH SOME ADVICE...
    THANKS IN ADVANCE I WILL STAND BY THE COMP AS I NEED TO ORDER PARTS

    A clutch can easily go out in a year if you ride it hard and race a lot. (ie: drop your clutch)

    Time to fork out $1k and get a new clutch.

    PS: get rid of the [/b]on the front so it says "[ b]text[/b]" to get the bold to show. (without the space)
    Stage II and loving it!

    I Didn't Really Race It Or Force It A Lot..
    But Again What Is The Issue? Why Did The Pedal Stay On The Floor.
    I Had The Clutch Checked About 2 Weeks Ago They Said I Need New Disk
    The Kit I Have Installed Is Complete Pressure Plate Bearings And Disc So I Need The Disk... My Problem Is What Made The Pedal Act Like This And What Part Should I Get

    Puck type clutch disks just don't like the street. The small surface area doesn't handle wear well. They love the track where every shift is fast. Switch to an organic full disk for the street, or Stage 2 Kevelar might be right for you.
    Cones don't count at Hillclimbs.
