So the noises my clutch is making I've been told are normal? Rattle in neutral when clutch pedal is released. Not always. Just random timed, disappears when pushing clutch in. Blkfocuszx3 (mike) said his Svt did it all the time. And his current zx3 with a newer clutch does the same thing.

So clutch should be okay. 87k so prob 20-30k more depending on driving habits.

Thoughts?

ya... thats nothing to worry about... just clutch chatter. a lot of aftermarket lightweight flywheels do that too. the spec stg2 with the 12lb guy was real loud. push the pedal in to disengage and the noise would go away.. Shouldn't worry about that.

the clutch in my focus didnt' start to slip until 125k miles give or take

Well eff it then, gonna order a fswerks tune!

Ill get clutch when slips. Since work commute is all highway it should last past 125k hopefully. It grabs hard still. 27k in the year I've owned it, luckily all highway!

You guys ever meet up in the spring/summer/fall??

Yay my dad has mine before me and just had a 30 mile highway drive each way to work and thats basically all the miles it saw until i got it at around 80k miles give or take.. and even then it last after several days at waterford hills. and me just dicking around with it.

We used to have a hell of a lot more get togethers in the last few years but last year we didn't heave nearly as many. I'll probably try throwing something together at the house some point this summer.
