Will be TDi, at first I was against getting one but now the clutch is working as it should, it can be lightened more and raised without causing issues, previously it was light as a feather and the bite was right at the top.
Just want more direct feel as I find the damper masks the engagement point a lot.
I have this made in the FN2 of my brother (I am his mechanic). I deleted the clutch damper and made my own custom braided sleeve line for the clutch.
Deleting the damper makes feel the clutch slightly better, it's a bit more direct. It depends on what you prefer, as there is people who will prefer it with the damper. I personally prefer it to feel more direct, and solid. More pointed towards racing applications where you have to down shifting agressively, matching the engine revolutions with the mainshaft of the gearbox.
We have it made along with an Ogura Racing clutch, and as these racing cluthces are really afressive, all together is a little crazy.
But if you delete only the damper, it feels slightly better.
The damper is just to make the car feel more quiet when you release the clutch wrongly after shifting.
Oh, if the clutch stays OEM, the tact feels nearly the same as with the damper.
Only deleting the damper and/or adding hard braided line, changes just what I pointed above: it makes dissapear the "false" tact which the clutch has sometimes when shifting, etc.
It makes it to feel a little bit more direct :smile3:
The clutch tact (softer or harder) changes with the clutch itself, if you change it.
The problem I have, especially with work boots is that in MK8 petrol civics there is no feel for the engagement at all.
The derv, whilst similar was fine on OEM.
The FN2's is quite light so when I lift off the clutch it's just numb. I've driven other FN2s and they were terrible due to EOL clutch and shot fluid. Mine's lovely now but still requires a few miles of driving to get the muscle memory back of the bite as you can't feel it until it's already engaged.
Hoping a line will solve it but as it's driving so well now I don't want to rock the boat xD
Yes, it makes slightly lighter, but it is not really notorious to the pedal.
Of course I make this modification only in cars with uprated clutches. But not to get a lighter pedal, but to get a quicker response of the fluid through the clutch line. And it works.
Hi most times when starting the car i hear a bad loud'ish grinding sound for 1 to 3 seconds. Car runs fine, just this sound. Some times it doesnt make it, other times it does. I've done over 210k km, so the car isn't new anymore.
Any ideas? Starter motor? PCV?
Any suggestions on what to...
I'm considering trading my 1.8 14 Civic for a FK2 or FK8.
It will be the only car in my house hold. It'll sometimes be used for driving around Uk and abroad, sometimes with my young daughter.
Heard some people say the FK2 is a harsh ride. How bad is it compared to the FK8? am I better...
Hi i have purchased a Honda type r 2007. I love the car and i have taken a great interest in making it feel like new again. everything else seems in order apart from the interior rattles. I have sorted out a few such as the squeak coming from the interior light panel, taped up the metal seat...
Hi guys, i recently bought a Type r fn2 with 106300 km.
Today is 110k and since i bought it i had to top 1l of oil.
I drive it normal to go to work, 15km total and some vtec pulls on the weekend.
Seems a bit weird and i suspect i have to change piston rings.
Just got an unlucky CTR?
Hi peeps, so i decided to replace the PCV valve on my FN2 Type R 2009 and snap the end of the threads of came off inside? Sigh... Can someone tell me the actual name of where the valve goes in, and can it be removed via the 2 bolts that keep it secure? :( was such a easy just job just not my...
