    Clutch Problems?

    Hey guys so I believe I'm having an issue with my clutch. Last night when driving home I notcied that I seemed to be getting a bit more chatter than normal. When I pulled boost in second gear it sounded like my clutch just started rattling uncontrollably. when I let off the gas it stopped. Now I have put a stage 3 spec clutch in roughly 300 miles ago. I haven't abused the clutch and I really avoid trying to ever ride the clutch. Someone locally had mentioned possibly the slave cylinder. Any ideas?

    sounds more like internal trans noise, unless it stops when you push the clutch in, which would point more towards a throw out bearing. Its usually not a slave cylinder(hydraulic) issue unless you are losing fluid, feel a difference in the pedal, or have difficulty getting into gear.

    Well you were close... It's my rod bearings. Wasn't making a noise until high rpm,s and I mistakened the sound for unusual clutch chatter. So looks like I'm the newest member of the spun bearing club.
