Do you think the tall 1st gear is part suspect in this? Is this with the stock disk and pp? I'm just thinking out loud about what/where the problem lies. There are certainly other high torque cars with Al flywheels. The friction surface is steel and I'm thinking Al may have less capacity for heat but yet radiates heat quite quickly (faster, I think than steel).
I'm just more suspect of clamping forces and pad/material design of factory rubber hubbed clutch. Any thoughts?
