    bedding in clutch

    Hi, i just finished installing a new clutch kit and flywheel on my 2006 wrx. I drove about 40 miles in town after completing the install then had to make a 7 hour trip up north. I was on the interstate for roughly 5 hours averaging 80 at about 3000rpm. From what i understand, bedding in a clutch requires a lot of in-town driving including frequent stops and what not. my question is, could all of those highway miles hindered the bedding in process?

    Some say the rule of thumb is 500 mi of normal driving, nothing extreme. Others will differ of course. I went the 500 mi route, city, highway on my Z. I think it paid off. I have no slipping and no chatter. Mates perfectly. Lightened fidanza flywheel, and ACT street performance clutch.

    The long trip didn't hinder anything, it just doesn't count towards you run-in time (or miles) just keep it easy on the clutch for a while longer, it'll be fine.
    You can't have everything - where would you put it?
