  1. Nope. It's all the way in gear at a dead stop. Letting the clutch out like a normal human being and it'll grind. A little more aggressive and it doesn't. My theory/understanding is that the plates engaging slowly and separately causes them to rotate at different speed. That's the grinding. That is until they are fully engaged together. Either way, drive it like you mean it. [emoji38]
  2. Ok. Thanks. I assumed it was normal. Just wanted to make sure. Thank you
  3. I have my first twin plate clutch and it came with the R32. It is an OS Giken. I have a couple questions. While I have the clutch in, there is some plate noise. It's not terrible, but noticable. It is gone as soon as the clutch starts to engage (in gear or in neutral.) And it is not the throw out bearing. Is this normal? Second, while starting from a full stop, occasionally I get a grinding. Best guess is coming from the trans/diff/clutch area. It is different from gear grind. It does not happen between shifts or in reverse. If it happens, it does while letting the clutch out. It stops when the clutch is fully engaged and only while in gear. And I can't get it to happen every time. If I'm a bit more aggressive on take off, it doesn't ever happen. Any thoughts?

    They have been more popular over here in the past 4 years. Our federal regulations kept us from getting these cars until they are at least 25 years old. So there may be more of us jumping in here. All three of those cars are street legal. I've had the black one on a couple of road courses over the years. But now it is in the shop for body work. I'd like to preserve it for the next 20 years. I'm converting it to look like a 180 type x. I do have a track only car as well. It is an older Honda Civic. I wouldn't be terribly upset if I wreck that over any of the Nissans.

    My black S13, original vert, and R32 at an autox 2 weeks into owning it!
  6. Hello all! I've been reading threads on here for a few years. I rebuilt my RB25 and picked up a lot of info from here. So, thanks! Now that I just bought an R32 GTR and will be visiting a lot more. Most likely hanging out just reading posts again. This is currently my 3rd Nissan. I have an all original convertible S13 and a black hatch S13 that I've owned for 20 years now. That had the RB25. Now it is getting an R33 RB26. AND I'll get this out of the way right now.... I'm in the US! I really respect this page. Great help and a lot of good info. Thanks again!
