    After only 8k miles of aggressive driving in my Stradale I have 73% clutch wear. I know, seems crazy to me given that I don't drive up and down a steep driveway nor do I ride gas pedal (it's all or nothing). FCF quoted me $5800 - $6000 and I know I can save going to an independent. Suggestions?

    How many Miles do you have on that car?
    You have to ask Luciano if he has an SD2. You need that to adjust the clutch to the F1.
    The clutch itself is $1500 or less unless you burned through the flywheel. Labor is easy (it is right on the back). You may want to consider doing the throw-out bearing at the same time. In that case add I believe $600 or less. Not sure what they quoted you on their service. Would almost pay to bring the car here to Miami and have it done here, in that case call me I will help you out.

    Martin, the car only has 8,000 miles and they quoted me $6,000 for the replacement. I am still shocked that it has that much wear. Who in Miami would you reccomend?

    The F1 is known to be a "user" of clutch discs.
    8000 is about right if you drive the car hard.
    Sometimes the "wear" reading on the SD2 is incorrect though. At 8000 still a good thing to actually do it.

    In Miami I can recommend ANSA Motorsports. The problem is you need to schedule with Alain. For example there is nothing till 2 weeks from now. They are running a race shop and their race cars take priority. They have at least two 360Challenge going to Chin this weekend in Sebring.
    If you are interested PM me and I will send you his phone number.
