In Topic: Suspect Clutch, Only In 5/6Th Gears

And is it under hard acceleration or on a gear change?

this. but not really hard acceleration, but it is making it a lot harder to overtake anything, 

 

i gfet full positive drive under very hard acceleration in the first 4 gears tho, and that is what is baffling me,

When it slips, does it squeak aswell?

no, when accelerating in 5/6 from about 2k rpm (not flat out, but moderate throttle) the reps start to climb, but the speed gradually inccreases, but when i back off the throttle, the revs drop back to what would be expected for that given speed

I have just had my 55 plate 2ltr clutch fly wheel and slave cylinder changed for the first time (148k miles) had the dual mass replaced for another dual mass. Did tonnes of research on the single kit and the general consensus was to go for the dual. The main points against the single were aimed at the driving style. You have to change your driving style because the single mass can feel quite harsh. The dual absorbs hard acceleration very well, protecting the longevity of the mechanics of the car whereas the single has an instant impact which is great fun but long term effects could lead to premature failure of parts. Ask yourself, can you be a true driver (alonso) or mr smooth (jenson)????

i can see your point, but given the fact that im already used to the fixed setup, and it is £500 instead of £700 to fix it i cant justify the extra cost, 

 

but the main thing im asking is why is it only slipping in the top 2 gears
