    Man that sucks.

    No fluid from the slave?

    Thee only thing left is the line from the master to the slave.

    I recommend the ss braided line that usp motorsports sells.

    I vacuum tested the master -> slave line today, as it's still in the car, and it's fine. I'm going to revert back to a plastic slave and master cylinder (Both new) and run it until this Winter when I pull the motor again.

    I didnt pull the clutch up after I got the car started and I think driving it for 70 miles while on the floor (my though is that it was partially engaged) seemed to lead it to a pretty bad glazing, as i mentioned.

    So yea, FX400 6 puck this time around... I will not be adding the power I was looking to make previously.

    I did the Stainless hose that Steve is talking about with the metal slave. I was careful to route the stainless line behind the bolt-on tin heat shield covering the bellhousing part of the body to keep it away from the Turbos and heat. I had heard of the lines melting and/or getting hot enough to boil the fluid. Your line looks to be Ok in the pics but you will be able to tell I'm sure in person.

    You need to pressure test the hose. They can internally rupture at and bulge when applying pressure and still not leak.

    The metal slave you have looks non standard but looks adequate unless it's adding to the length and causing a kink in the hose.

    Pretty successful week with everything! Bought and installed some cabinets for the garage that I wasnt even looking for... and finished it off with a trip to NYC for school. It didn't even break a sweat, temps were on point, and the A/C was ice cold in the 85 weather! F*ck that traffic though haha.

    Not thread jacking my own post... but now that the RS6 is like complete and what not and I've put most 3000 miles on it so far, it's time for a new boyi.

    My 288,000 S6. I have no idea where I want to go with it, but is a solid car. Happy to be in another URS
