    Default Premature Clutch Failure? J VXR

    Hey guys. I have a feeling my clutch is going in my J VXR. Put my foot down in 4th uphill and it seemed to slip. Has minimal kms on it, just clicked over 15K/kms. Anyone experienced early clutch failure on these? Car hasnít been on the track yet and itís the standard map.

    Sorry for the delayed response. Iím from Australia, so I had to pay shipping from WGM $1200AUD landed was the price for the clutch I also had to pay import duty, but thatís not the actual price for the kit. I also fitted it myself as Iím a qualified mechanic.
