1) Warm up the motor.
2) Engage the hand-brake.
3) Rev the car to red-line,
4) Sloooooooowly let out the clutch, until the car starts to move,
5) Push in the clutch pedal again, run motor to red-line.
6) Repeat until the smell is unbearable.

LOL. Do NOTT do that. I don't really think it's a good idea. I found it on google groups: http://groups.google.com/groups?hl=...212612.08300.00002919%40ng112.aol.com&rnum=10

I'm interested in this as well. My guess is 250-500miles driving grandma style :cool:

there probably are differing opinions, but I've heard anywhere from 500-1000 miles and not to go over 3000-4000rpms. I broke mine in for 5000 miles keeping it under 3500 rpm and no hard launchs.

No redline shifts! I'm talking to you McCoy! Don't drag me back out there for another clutch job when we do the turbo install.

most clutch manufactors have a suggested break in period. follow that, and take it easy on the clutch.

500-1000miles of easy driving. the main thing is not to shift hard. let the clutch out easy in all the gears, not just first.
