so a Centerforce Dual Friction clutch? Mine was holding 200rwtq. It started slipping due to an inconsistent torque on the PP from a faulty torque wrench I was using. I had hot spots on the flywheel.

The flywheel friction surface is Carbon Fiber and it's VERY sensitive to break in, heat, and torque. It needs to be broken and about 1000 non-boosted miles. If they didn't torque the PP correctly it may never hold.

its not centerforce, the guy makes the clutches in his shop. I called him and he said to adjust the pedal and to break it in for a week or so with normal driving. He also said that the clutch disc might be just a little bit too thick and that would cause the pedal to be easy to press down but after it wears about 10/1000ths it should stiffen up..
