Hi everyone--
I got a lot of burn marks on both the plate of the clutch and the flywheel. The clutch is Competition Clutch Stage 2. The flywheel is stock; resurfaced when clutch was installed. I had the clutch less than a year and put less than 10K on it. I drove it pretty easy, and did not abuse it. Not sure what caused it. I'm getting the engine rebuilt, that's why I saw my clutch out.
So my questions?

Do I have them just put the clutch back in? Will those burn marks hurt anything?

I also have the stock clutch I can have them put back. If so, use the competition clutch brand pressure plate or the stock one?

From my understanding, if you flywheel isn't resurfaced perfectly, it develops those uneven burn marks. Up to you I suppose depending on whether they're raised etc. I'd have it resurfaced as you want the flattest area to drip as possible.

No they won't hurt anything. Big thing is to ensure that all the parts are properly cleaned before install.

Thanks guys for the replies. I really appreciate your feedback. After reading your replies, I turned the car around from taking the stock clutch there and decided to keep the stage 2 in there a while longer. Didn't want the cut the fun so short, hahahaha.

Your stage two isn't far from a stock clutch...

Yeah, I didn't think so. My purpose was something with just a bit more holding power and can handle more abuse/ last longer. I was probably wrong on the last longer part though.

No, sprung clutches = suck. If you look at an OE Toyota disk they use rubber dampers instead of springs.

Usually, I got a funky disk from the dealer with 2 dampeners and 2 springs. Go figure :confused:

Your dealership is racist.
