Finally made the purchase.

After a much long debate and related product research. I'll soon be joining the CM FX350 w/ smf list in January.

Just providing an update. I have 2700+ miles on my Southbend Stage 2 Daily clutch. I am K04'd and don't daily my car. When it leaves my garage, it is driven at 110%. I have had no slippage anywhere including full boost at less than 30 degrees in 6th gear. I do have some gear lash on decel that I can notice now that the windows stay up (winter), but when I try to point it out to my buddies they don't seem to make a connection relative to how it was OEM. I can hear it though.

The verdict is still out, but its solid for now.

I have a scheduled install date of December 30th at RSW in Jersey. I will repost again once installed so i can be added to the list. Happy holidays to everyone and their families!

Got my RSR in this morning, just put about 80 miles on it. This thing grabs like a beast! Very impressed

Worth noting, im also running a dxd stg2 daily and its still holding stage 3+ power. For how much longer idk, but its still holding. Its plenty for ko4 use :thumup: btw, it has 20k+ on it, has been there for stg2, ko4 and 3+

if my fx350 holds big turbo power i'll be pretty happy. i was reading that a lot of golfmkv guys are getting away with big power on less aggresive clutches due to tuning. with a smooth torque onset you're less likely to slip vs a big spike at 3.5k.

Add me to the fx350 with smf! Will report with updates periodically.
How many miles did you fx350 owners do break in for? I'm thinking 1000 miles. Please correct me if you have any recommendations. Thanks! Happy new year to everyone and they're families!

1100 mile update: Switched on the tune. Clutch engages strong on each shift, almost feels like when i used to shift my STi and the rear diff would smack around.

Went wide open throttle while in second gear at around 30mph and broke the front wheels loose. Only tire slip and no clutch slip!

Third, Fourth, Fifth and Sixth @ WOT = no slip.

I know and with summer comes the heat soak. Lol.
Hey kern, how many miles do you have on your 350?
