Potential Clutch Problem...?

i currently have an rps street clutch in my 05 WRX...current mods are Downpipe, up-pipe, light flywheel, cobb stage 2, hks BOV, injen RAI....recently it feels like the car is bucking wen taking off from a start and it makes the sound of a clutch on its way out....i have had this clutch for approx 25K, launched maybe 3 times in its lifetime so far...but ive tested it in third gear by braking and building up boost to approx 16psi, clutch holds perfectly...could it be that the flywheel needs to be resurfaced already?? im clueless...

Try to feather the clutch as you are starting off (kinda like double clutching)

WRXKidid775 is more helpful than not
clutch chatter. Just annoying but nothing significantly wrong. It has to do with wear on the clutch disk and flywheel IIRC

Robby
02 rex is gone.
I defected to an evo :)
Evo is gone :(
Now I got nothing.

The lightened fly wheel doesn't help that is for sure...we run the stock flywheel on all of our cars

i have a lightened fly and it did the same till i got used to it. but after 25000k. i dunno. by the way, stock flys are good but it is good to keep stock with stock. no mix and match bull s***. thats just my opinion so dont get mad any body

not to get off topic, but my turbo came with some sort of lubricant in the oil line already...smells like oil....is this normal? i thought they came dry which was the whole point of priming the turbo
