      No worries.

      Car when stock was light and easy to engage gears.
      I use a race-spec carbon metallic clutch now,and even with that,it's easy to engage gears,and feels light and easy to use.

      Thanks Alex, I appreciate your help.

      What was your car like in reverse when it was standard? Did you ever get the feeling that it was strangely geared? I use past tense because I assume you now have a very different clutch setup. I've never had clutch problems before and I'm not a bad driver but I genuinely struggle to reverse uphill.

      Hi Alex,

      A quick question, i notice in your build thread that when you did your 4 wheel alignment you mentioned negative camber on the rear.

      I am running stock springs and suspension and standard 18" rims on my S3, i do however have 15" spacers on the rear and 10mm spacers on the front, i am having the 4 wheel laser alignment done at Elite on Saturday as i have a wheel wobble and originally they thought it was to do with balancing, so they balanced all 4 last week but the wobble (although reduced) is still there so they recommend the alignment being done.

      Question is i hear a lot of people refer to negative camber is this only for lowered cars or cars with larger wheels etc or is this something i need to get them to do ?

      Any advice would be appreciated

      Hi Alex, how are you?

      I remember you mentioning that you've also had Michelin PS3's on your S3 - but can you remember what tyre pressures you used?

      I've just had 4 new PS3's fitted, and I was using 42 psi front, and 33 psi rear - but I was told the figure for the fronts is way too high, and that I should drop it to between 33 and 36 psi for the fronts?

      I have a 3-door S3 on the standard 18" wheels, and it's usually just me in the car. With that in mind should I try something like 36 psi front and 33 psi rear?

      Thanks pal,

      Dan

      Very strange....burns or hot spots on the flywheel...presumably where slip has been occurring....I wonder if it's not perfectly flat>

      Car went back into mechanic this morning. He has found as follows:

      No contamination - or leaks from crankshaft or hydraulics
      Tiny amount of glazing to only a small part of friction material
      Friction/clutch disc was in the right way
      Self adjustment was even and OK
      Pressure plate bolted up evenly

      · SACHS Part Numbers
      · Flywheel - 2294 000 113 / correct but three equidistant burns/hot spots on surface and a lot of play (not rotational)
      · Pressure Plate - 883082 999788 / incorrect (3082000396) three burn marks/hot spots equidistant (matching flywheel)
      · Organic Clutch Disc - 881864 999502 / incorrect (1864999980)
      · Release Bearing - 3182 997 901 / ??? can't find any numbers on it so assume it is correct for now.

      Now waiting to hear from supplier.

      Hello Alex,
      thank you for replying to my thread.
      Wanted to ask you if the 3071 is a straight forward replacement with its own manifold, or what is the job to install it?
      Cheers,
      AJ
