Sweet details!
:yeahthat: I'm curious about your driving techniques as well.

Just for my clarification, when you said 'burnt clutch' you mean your clutch is already slipping while fully engaged and the car's accelerating right? (rpms going up fast while the car's not really moving as it should)

This is not Honda's fault. This is driver fault.

I figured you were ^^ just letting a youngster know to politely learn how to drive your car. Si= kind of a expensive car to learn stick on.

I taught myself stick on my Si... im at 25,000 and the clutch is still just as good as it was on day one when i stalled like 5 times leaving the dealership.

Something tells me theres WAY more to this story than meets the eye

a little over a grand is reasonable for a clutch job on our cars. you have to pull pretty much everything short of the motor (including steering rack) just to drop the tranny. i asked my dealership for shits and giggles what a clutch/flywheel would cost and it came out to $2042.17. I ended up having my buddys shop do an exedy stage 1/exedy flywheel for $1000. but yeah ur driving style needs to change asap.
