is this normal for Toda fly?

Recommended Posts

i've just had my flywheel and clutch replaced a couple of weeks ago (finally!). exedy heavy duty clutch kit & toda lightweight flywheel (1zz)

and i'm not sure if its sposed to feel this way..

it does wind up a little quicker and the torque has been met halfway, but this was expected

but the clutch feels like my old worn clutch. if feels like it rides a fair bit, and off the mark it feels like its not grabbing.

i know the flywheel is lighter and due to less inertia, the clutch slows it down a lot quicker. but it doesnt feel like its grabbing and engaging well.

does anyone else feel this? is this normal? i dont know whether theres been much improvement at all

what could be the problem and do you guys think i should have it re-checked?

thanks in advance for all help

try a bit of moderate clutch dumping/sidestepping and if it doesn't brake traction then maybe it needs to be readjusted....or maybe they need some to wearing into since its new??.........But I'm pretty sure everytime I drive a car that has a new clutch, I always drive it gently so I don't chirp it every single time I take off.

How did you break the clutch in?

Where's the take-up point in the pedal travel?

You're meant to take it easy for the first 500km.

i have been going easy on the clutch as advised by my mechanic. its done more than 1000km now

i havent felt much friction point and even when it was fresh it wasnt really noticable, not even like the stock clutch when the car was new. its like the clutch has softer than its ever been.

the friction point (barely noticeable) is maybe 30% from the top of the pedal if that makes sense.

i never dump it at 5k. i've dropped it once or twice in the past week its been raining, no more than 3500rpm

is there also a way to make the clutch pedal feel firmer? like adjusting the pedal assembly somehow?

did he take it for a drive after he installed it to make sure everything was all good? i would make him fix it, it might be something as simple as a clutch adjustment but might be better to take it to a clutch specialist..
