    I need a new clutch!

    My clutch just went out (basically because I beat the crap outta my WRX) at 30,000 mi. Any suggestions on what might be a good clutch to buy. Or should I just stick with a factory clutch??? Let me know what you guys think

    you should stick with not beating on your WRX
    luxury is 1.00 BAR+ of boost and the inability for your passenger to touch the dashboard

    Sach makes nice clutches.....

    but.... I beat my car too, and my clutch is fine, it sounds like to me you slip it too much. I might go with a stock clutch or cheap replacement if your going to junk it every 30k miles.

    well a bit of foot trickery :P

    I slip slightly taking off from a dead stop my reves stay just under 1k till things get rolling. from there on out there is no slipping at all... clutch all the way in, shift, clutch out at the same time the gas is going down as if my feet were connected by strings.

    if you slip a perfomance clutch much at all you'll chew it up in a week.

    all I have ever owned is a stick though.
