    Yeah I did the same thing when I first drive it yesterday lol, definitely feels good so far though I got the braided line also which is supposed to help to. Yeah I wouldn't want to drive a "normal" car now otherwise it'll take a few days to get used to the clutch in mine again :lol:

    I've got the stock clutch so not so much of an issue but brakes... When I get in the wife's 1.0 fiesta its like I'd never stop I was time... The only thing when she drives me home from the pub it's through the windscreen on braking haha

    Well not having a good time with the clutch so far, it was fine when first installed but the last few days it will not at all go into reverse and hard to get into first. First to second can be difficult and over all feels very notchy. It's as though the clutch isn't fully disengaging as when it won't go into gear with the clutch fully pressed the car will move slightly. Rebled the system again yesterday and no difference :( hopefully I can get it sorted soon

    Did you fit a new release bearing? And lube it up?

    New slave cylinder which acts as the release bearing I believe and the uprated clutch line from aks too was installed. Been on the phone to aks yesterday and they are going to give me a ring today at some point. Bloody nightmare though lol

    Last Dyno was 310bhp and 350lbft torque but going to tweak the map as soon as the new clutch is sorted so it'll be a full stage 2

    I would do but I do remaps myself so it would make for an interesting conversation with a customer if they ask what map I'm running :lol: as soon as the clutch is sorted it's going on our Dyno :)
