has anyone ever had the clutch fork break while driving? what would cause this?.....just age?
I lost the clutch earlier and saw some fluid under. I was hoping it was just the slave, but I looked in the trans and saw the fork was in 3 pieces.
just wondering if this is common or if there could be another cause.

What clutch are you running?

It's not common. But with a stiff clutch it could have fatigued a weak spot in your particular mass produced cast piece.

I have an act xtreme pp with the street disc. the setup is supposed to be good to like 600ft lbs. honestly, the pedal doesn't feel that stiff. i'm planning on having the trans built with pgs dogbox gears anyway, and a spec twin disc.
I figure it probably broke from age and some abuse lol
I just ordered a whole new setup from dm to hold me over till I pull the trigger on the built trans.
