Angry F'n peace of $ht...

This new luk clutch master cylinder didn't even last a whole month... 28 days to be exact.

Why can't someone make a better version... guess I'm gonna have to i refuse to buy another luke...

u squirtin' a banshee eh? i know a thing or 2 about that. used a vr 32-1 wheel on the flywheel though for ign control with an hei 2 pole coil off a gm 3.1l v6. worked awesome. just had problems with MAF software on the old ms2v3 (v2.831 code). i would like to try a micro someday soon on my cheetah cylinders. Would be sick to have all that power and running clean...more trail friendly.

let me know if your following me... Cause your thread topic is foreign to me. Why not use a stock master?

I seemed to follow that to some extent, up until cheetah cylinders

The Luk is likely just a stock replacement but he probably doesnt realize there is something else causing it to fail prematurely... cause and effect, yes?

I put a LUK kit into my SVT after it blew up at FF '11 and I haven't had any issues. Have you had your car inspected for anything?

Cause > stage three clutch masters kit
effect > higher hydraulic pressure

So in that... I can see why it would leak, not ment to handle HP... but why they snap is just shty craftsmanship
