    I didn't find any aftermarket shims which is not surprising really as demand for this type of parts is probably so low that only main mitsubishi parts suppliers make them me think. Funny bit is when I spoke with few gbox refurbished 'specialist' as was hoping that they may stock shims, none of them have a clue what I'm talking about.

    What flywheel did you use that clutch on? I've got the same situation to be honest a snachy juddery act item on a evo lightweight fly and a nm adapter thinking of going back to oem how did your clutch hold up?

    Small update, @hbkuk1 I use pro shop lida light fly, and clutch just taken out today looks like that

    20150715_222911 (Large).jpg20150715_222916 (Large).jpg20150715_222922 (Large).jpg20150715_223035 (Large).jpg



    Im sad now, clutch not done 20k miles and is just about 3 years old, not sure what was causing this to happen and even worst not know what to with it and what to pick up next, want my car to be nicely drivable so all puck and competition on/off type clutches are not an option, get the same? not know

    Wow so a standard one is out of the question...... I have been looking at exedy stage 1 seems to be fairly oem feeling but 40% stronger

    What make is the clutch? My competition clutch stage 2 seems to be okay, slightly judder at low revs when pulling away from a standstill but mostly no problem.

    3 years /20k miles is not bad longevity for a stock clutch when your pumping a heap more power through it and launching etc.

    Its oem exedy exact that one
    You see, I know ex-owner of the vr4 with apparently exactly the same clutch as yours and he's get rid of vr4 as could not cope with is day to day driving, it may due to skills or expectations. Actually I may have a go in this car as its still around and see myself how its feels.

    theres a compitition clutch in mine, doesnt really shudder, slips alright when you want it to, just a bit heavy in traffic, and a bit harsh with a cold engine, @Gly could probably tell you more about the clutch

    It may be a daft idea but is there a chance to replace only damaged bit with springs as rest of it seems ok Im sure i read somewhere that is possible to upgrade sprung part for one with more clamping force, i think it was Steve fron ozvr4 offer that so it may be possible to change my boken bit for something stronger?

    Right i dig through whole internet and so far i pick three options

    get exedy 'pink' for 331.99 +post
    get one off TME_Steve for about 354 plus post two ways
    get just a friction plate for god knows how much as I didn't manage to find any selling separate online

    option one
    + available straight off the shelf
    - not much stronger than stock
    option two
    + much stronger than stock
    - long waiting time for post and double the cost as I need to send my pressure plate back
    option three
    + cheapest
    - cant find any sellers and it will end up as my current set probably


    btw @Adam.Findlay do you think that my current clutch give up from abuse or its may something else help? my input shaft bearing was rattly for long time so maybe that's part of this failure one more thing, which I'm not sure about yet, can you tell me what's the purpose of big shims/washers in between fly and crank/bolts as they differ in between auto/man and I'm pretty sure I bolt manual fly using auto fly shims/washers as at that time I didn't know they are different.

    Exedy "pink" is IMO quite soft clutch. For stock power in Evo pretty OK and very good to drive. I had one in my E8 for 13 months (4 mths of my ownership) and replaced one due to increase in power and torque. Laying in a loft upstairs, plenty of life left, can be yours for 100 quid or 150 (with E8 stock flywheel), pictures on demand

    As for HD clutches, lots of people going for ACT "organic" one. In general this clutch has outstanding good feedback, as "stock" feeling and enormous torque capability.
    Here is the link:
    http://www.indigo-gt.com/catalog/ind...oducts_id=3739

    Recently I'm user of 6-puck clutch (rated 600 lbft), finaly got civilized feeling after 2k miles of bedding and replacement of all engine/gearbox mounts for urethane solid one. Apparently these clutches don't like "engine" movement hence judder.
    Ex: Galant VR4
    Running 268 HP ATW and 443 Nm torque at 0.9 bar
    Now: Lancer Evolution 8 FQ-300
    Running 325 HP ATW and 510 Nm torque at 1.6 bar

    Yes, it's harder, but still you can do "half-cluch" play, where in 4 or 6-puck it's not likely.
