Ok...

So it would seem that the clutch is starting to slip a little. If it gets any worse I'm going to get Honda to check it out as its still under warranty. But do they replace like for like or will they use an uprated clutch that will solve the problem?

Thanks

There is a revised clutch for the DERVs, I think Honda fit them as standard now.

Quite a common issue for DERVs to eat the clutches.

Remapped they do it even more.

Honda will no doubt try and claim its been caused by you, so be on your toes.

Take it back asap. I just had mine changed last Friday and it is the uprated part.

Initially it was just rev shooting up and no acceleration when I floor it in sixth gear. Later it is floor and no acceleration at all.

Good luck

Only had it a week. Its used with about 29k on it. So if it is driver abuse then it isn't my driving :S

its from a Honda garage so where would I stand in this situation?

Also will the revised clutch handle a remap?

They wont blame you then. I had same situtaion on my Type R after two weeks clutch had given up, so it was replaced under warranty.

I dont think the revised cluth handles a remap well. Relic or Costel are the people to ask about that.

I think a few people have got a kevlar coated clutch with a remap.

I imagine they will replace it under warranty for you

Either the garage or honda should pick up the tab for that one.
The garage for selling a car with a bad clutch and Honda if its the deefective clutch.
Make sure you take it straight back right now though ;)
