After 140miles the clutch seems a little lighter. There is zero noise now, I thought it would take longer.

Ran into a focus st this morning, always seems to happen when I can't push my car hard. The wait continues.

It's just a commuter. I don't launch it or beat on it. I enjoy a spirited drive but that's it. I'm 36 and have been driving stick for over 20 years.

Yeah definitely sounds like parts failure to me. I'm curious how much these components vary since there aren't really too many suppliers around.

I pieced together my RSR, and while it's very similar parts-wise to the HOD kit, it's definitely smoother and lighter. franco516 can attest to that haha

franco, any updates of how your clutch is holding up? I noticed the above picture of the clutch disc sublime provided, it has a different design from your original post (single rivets compared to your double). I just placed an order for the 6GT kit for my GLI and Andy from HoD told me that I'll be getting a revised clutch disc from another supplier that is local in Ohio.

I have 800 miles on the clutch now, feels completely stock at this point other than grabbing and not slipping.

Sometimes I hear something at idle with my windows down(chatter I guess) but it's so slight, not something that is very loud at all.

I need to figure out the play in the actual shifter, it's got too much and I think the dog bone insert will help some of that. Other than that it's amazing.

I wanted to ask about the delay after shifting for power. When quickly shifting into the next gear there is a delay, I assume part clutch delay and part boost delay...not sure how to get rid of that or at least lessen it. I've read a a little about the clutch delay valve, don't want to add the no lift shift from APR but if I can get the delay to lessen I'd be happier.

Have 5k on mine now. Still grabs nicely as it should. Drove another mk6 weeks ago with a southbend and it was a ko4 car, I didn't like the clutch engagement as much, no dual mass...but the HOD is holding up nicely.

Apparently same thing just happened to mine. HOD is sending a new one that uses the new manufacturing.
