Twin plate install on R32 GTR

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, this weekend I helped my friend install a Nismo Super Copper mix twin plate clutch into his GTR. 

We followed the Nissan Service Manual where applicable, and Nismo's instructions for installing the clutch - Along with using proper ARP hardware for the flywheel, and the bolts supplied by Nismo all torqued to spec.

As well, we replaced the master and slave with new OEM Nissan parts, and vacuum bled the whole system. 

The clutch feels great and the dead play is within the factory spec as per the Nissan Factory Service manual.

Clutch drives great on the street no issues. 

The issue he is having, when parked on a hill with the car off. If you put the car into first gear, let out the clutch and use the gearbox to essentially hold the car on the hill (so all the load is on the gearbox). You can't disengage the transmission out of first gear by pushing the clutch in (shifter locks into place), the car also won't roll backwards if you push the clutch in. 

I've told him not to do this as its essentially not great for the drivetrain and to use the handbrake, place car into neutral so the handbrake has the weight and then put the car into gear. 

Apparently it never use to do this with the single plate clutch in it. Is this a normal characteristic of a twin disc clutch or would this indicate the clutch isn't adjusted 100% correctly? 

Clutch doesn't seem to drag, in first gear with the clutch pushed in you can free rev it and car won't move.

Hi, I don’t have much of an idea on your question, except that it doesn’t sound like a good idea to do that, would be pressure on the gear.

I would like to know what it’s like to drive, heavy clutch? Etc? I plan on putting one in my Gtt. Cheers
