Damn, yeah those were some serious hot spots. I've seen this happen on industrial brakes before, but never a clutch (then again, i've never messed with a clutch). On my machines, it is usually a sign of poor friction material contact, usually caused by foreign material (EDIT: or high spots on the metal surface...remember to resurface those flywheels kiddies!). hmm...

Anyway, glad to hear you're back on the road.
2002 Focus ZX5 in Zinc Yellow: Steeda Strut Bar, Tom's Tune, Volant CAI with Aux Pipe Extension, SVT suspension, and ST200's.
