You have an after market clutch in your car? I just drove from Nashville to Florida to get my Evo and noticed in the AM and sometimes on a weirdly uneven surface under load my clutch makes a noise(sounds similar to a bearing?) that has to be coming from somewhere in there. It is a very stiff clutch(hard to hold my foot on it during traffic so I have to keep it in neutral) and when it engages as your letting out the pedal it grabs really quick. There is almost no slip at all, when it engages it really engages. I'm a noobie obviously to this Evo so anything will be helpful. I don't remember the Evo that I test drove having a clutch this serious. Thanks for the help!
