    Strange Noise on 1st or Reverse

    I'm getting this noise whenever I slowly left off the clutch in 1st or reverse. It's not juddering but more of a squeal sound. It lasts maybe less than a second then goes away once fully engaged and foot is off the clutch pedal. I've tried letting the car roll down the driveway in neutral and there is no sound. Also, after a few stop and go's, the sound goes away or if I launch around 2K RPM and drop the clutch.

    Any ideas? I'm running HPF Stage 2 and OEM DMFW.

    Does it sound like noise #1 described in my thread?

    No, mine is only when launching. I first thought it was wheel bearings but the neutral test disproves that.

    I think I had that on my ACT street clutch,

    let me you get a squeal sound (metal rubbing fast on metal) when you launch on the hard during the time where you slip the clutch. right? I've noticed that with the ACT clutch it likes to be dumped (engaged as soon as possible) and not slipped.

    When I bought the HPF Stage 2 clutch kit, I got the release bearing kit too.

    I see.

    It just sounds like when there is partial pressure on the pedal it makes the noise, but no pressure or full pressure result in no noise. I've seen bearings that only make noise when partially loaded, but when fully loaded or when unloaded produce no noise.

    If the bearing is new it should not be the problem though.

    Yes, this is what I get but not on hard launch but on slow release of the clutch.

    Yes, this is correct, but it does go away after I feel like the car has warmed up. I also just wired my brake pad sensors and my pads are still good so its def not the brakes but the squeal sounds like it.

    gotcha, in my case, it was only during a hard launch when the clutch is slipping. So basically it was very hard for me to be able to control traction because it starts squealing and I other stop or dump it...
