    I haven't taken measurements of the Hendrix setup just yet...but I will. I'll match them up with Nmaier measurements (thanks Boss) and make sure everything is the same as his stock LS7 setup. I'll be the guinea pig and make sure there aren't any discrepencies. Hendrix told me it's the same as an LS7 setup, so you'll need a LS7 slave (which is longer than LS6 slave and shouldn't need a spacer)

    I have the LAPD remote bleeder that I plan on installing while I have the trans out.

    That's a great question for Thomas!


    Also, are you guys all subscribers of the "500 miles stop and go" break-in period for clutches? Or what do you think?

    Get some feedback when you can. I hit 60k miles the other night and am still on my original clutch with a number of track days. It's only a matter of time...

    I will say this, when cars are built they normally get driven quite hard on a dyno and some even get flogged out onto open road ( depending ont he type of vehicle it is). I know the cars here at work show up with 1-3miles on it and people drive them like the stole it..... never heard any issues about them having to baby them.


    But i would do what you feel most comfortable doing.

    Ive never know a highly regaurded shop to beat on a car with a new aftermarket clutch EVER.A stock clutch uses a different type of material and is ready to go out of the box,but will not hold much power.You want to get numorous heat cycles,with stop and go driving ,the full disc you have will not take as much breaking in as a puc style.Its hard to give MILES you need in town driving ,i would say 300 or so miles you should be ready to go.

    Do you find yourself not using 6th gear like most people have said?


    ROFL giving the fact that they didn't bleed it and it's got boiled fluid in it... I have only driven my sweet upgraded V for a weekend... the clutch engagement was slightly different... I think because of the thinner flywheel and longer slave... but no biggie there... engine revs and decels MUCH faster... very much more "peppy" (if that's even a word)

    The feel is fantastic and almost like the OEM boat anchor..

    I can tell you drivelink clunk went down a TON so getting rid of that dual mass flywheel was worth it... you sir are going to love it.

    Yeah I was just speaking on the side of an OEM company.... i have no idea the process that goes into breaking in an aftermarket clutch.

    i just know we build cars and they begin to get beaten like red headed step children.
