Yeah I know what you mean, yeah that's what I do too usually, but I'm just an over excited teenager, so I was like popping the clutch lol. But I'm always down to learn whatever!

Just be careful on riding the clutch because you can wear out the clutch fast and also the throw out bearing.

on the imrc.. if its not broken.. maybe 5 bucks.. just would need some fine sand paper to clean the contact and some rtv (gasket maker) to seal up the box itself.

if its broken on the inside, then you would have to buy one.. and i see them go for about 80-100 in the BST forum.

I should've clarified. How much time**.
How will I know if it's actually broken or not? Will it just be blatantly obvious?
