    The break in and low boost isn't the problem. The problem is the SSP clutches currently and it is not software related, it's hardware. We'll see what happens but I honestly would be better off with the stock clutch packs at this point. What a nightmare.

    I am sorry to hear that. I am a fervent 6mt guy but the DCT system fascinates me. I want to see it at full potential.

    That said, is SSP coming to the rescue with something re-designed? Or are you getting the "use at your own risk - S.O.L." kind of answers from them?

    My guess is you fused something - hopefully clutch packs and not something internal.

    Good luck. I want to see this bastard run.

    EDIT: + rep for you Joe for giving out some technical updates.

    I mean a simple solution is just a stock clutch basket. But I mean what a waste of everyone's time.

    Don't know yet Alex says Kris@SSP is not answering his calls. Not a good sign...

    No, definitely incorrect guess. The clutches just slip. I mean it's really some kind of mechanical error or hardware that needs to be fixed. It may be an honest mistake. Only way to know is to get in there but I would definitely like SSP to fix this.

    I mean if SSP can't or won't then basically stock clutches and I'll need to find someone who actually can do it. I'm not writing SSP off just yet it's up to them right now how they would like to handle this.

    Dang. That sucks Sticky. Is this similar to what Drew had with the clutches?

    Lets hope SSP steps up with a solution. I'd give them a few days to chew on it before crucifying them.

    Sorry to hear this. I know what kind of a hassle this can be. Not with the DCT specifically but with unforeseen issues that just eat up time. I hope this all gets taken care of and it goes smooth for you.

    EDIT: went on the SSP site and they list these clutch disks for sale. Have they done this on any cars other than yours @Sticky ?

    I don't know what the rush is in all honesty. I want it done right not just sloppy and fast for the sake of the internet.

    Is it that time yet?

    Thanks so much Kris@SSP for delaying MY project for over a year and not delivering what was promised after missing your deadline by over a year, class act. Thanks for using me to develop clutches you sell and hanging me out to dry because your "trans build" you spent oh sooooo much time and money on doesn't work. If you actually used that time to do the work you were supposed to maybe it would function correctly?

    It's been a continuous flow of setbacks, and this could be a release point for the frustration. Sure I'm not impressed with SSP's response, and I don't know all the details, but I would give yourself some space to figure out what to do next. Publicly shaming a vendor isn't great advertising for a future potential partner...

    I was patient, kind, donated my time, and never said a single bad word. I gave SSP every opportunity and everything they needed and wasn't pushy at all like many suggested I should be.

    All I want to do is share my experience but of course your perspective is mature as always. I will take some time to think it over.

    Sounds like a good suggestion to me. Beyond disappointed with SSP.

    They don't give a damn. It was a mistake giving them my trans but they were the only ones willing to tackle it at the time.

    Hopefully now that the GTR has matured some of the big guys will want a challenge in other dual clutches with all the experience they now have.

    Really think I deserve better but it is what it is. SSP essentially is making themselves look bad.
