Driving home the other day, had a horrible sound with crap clutch input...got it home after some finagling from it not wanting to shift into 1st and other gears. Dropped the tranny today as I was working the weekend and found out why I had the weird noise. The tranny side clutch plate's splines sheard off and the engine plate was going to follow soon.

Looks like I may err on the side of cation (pending time) and locate another trans as well...

So I will admit that I am partly to blame, those times when I down shifted and didn't have the revs matched but I feel as though those should have been stronger for it not being sprung. Will be calling CM today to see about replacements parts.

Going to take the kit up to CM, have them rebuild it...going to have to take time form work as traffic will suck. Will have to drop the flywheel...

Super common problem in Exedy twins and some others but I haven't heard CC having issues. The solid hubs don't often agree with street driving. The rattle while the clutch is depressed eats away the splines.
Exedy supposedly changed their hub design but I still don't trust them. Interested to see what CC says.

Well, started slipping a week or 2 ago, hopefully it's just the disks...

You drive aggressively/race? What brand I forget? I was also considering the twin disk

Daily driving and a lot of stop any go more than anything, shifts not lining up properly with smooth engagement when getting back on the gas or missing the rev match since nothing is sprung. Keep in mind i really shouldn't be dding with a solid kit.

Sadly twins just aren't built for stop and go. The less time you can spend on the clutch pedal the better. It's the very slight rattle back and forth on the splines that destroys them. Hopefully not a spline issue again, but can't say that it's anything I havent seen before

Not a spline issue this time, I need to buy a regular clutch to mate with the 9lb flywheel instead

Ugh. Are twin disks known to be short lived? I had a friend w a 2015ish 5.0 Mustang (Iknow..) with a twin disc and it was gone in a short amount of time.

No clue, depends if its sprung or not I guess as with mine not being sprung has a shorter life span...
