Hey, I was just wondering if anyone has found out any new information regarding the strength of the Coupe's 6-speed clutch as of yet? I know that the 6-speed clutch in my Tiburon wasn't worth a damn (went out at 15k), so I'm just hoping that Hyundai beefed up those components as well. Judging from the looks of the car, so far, it looks like I won't be disappointed, so here's hoping. :bigthumb:

Other than the info that is in the Technical documents there isn't a whole lot of other information. Unfortunately I think that means the only way to know if we will have clutch or tranny issues is when people start to really drive the cars. I will be using mine as a daily driver but also will be taking it to the dragstrip and autocross coarse on a regular basis so I will try to give back as much info as I can. I think the last thing Hyundai wants to do(or any car manufacture for that matter), in this economy especially, is have a ton of problems with warranty work. I'll try to get a hold of my Hyundai rep and see if he can give us more insight. He's in Korea right now so I may not hear back from him for a bit. He's also supposed to get back to me o whether the turbo-4 will have a boost gauge or not. I know that has been on a few people's minds aswell.

You're really concerned about the clutch, aren't you? lol, this is the third forum I've seen this thread on.
LOL!! Well, I figured that there are 3 Genesis Coupe forums (that I know of), so why not spread it all out? The more people that see the question, the more answers it will generate. :)

Yeah, I'll be using mine in about the same circumstances, but I don't want to have issues early on like my Tiburon. I barely had any mods done to my car at that time, and I never beat on any of my cars. I mean, I enjoy my tib, but I'm not flooring it at every stop sign and traffic light.

Hopefully your rep will have some feed back here sometime soon.

Thanks!

Yeah, I agree that the last generation Tiburon clutches sucked & in addition had a floating flywheel (unable to resurface). So when it came time to replace the clutch, you also needed to replace the flywheel, a $2,200.00 job at the dealer. Now once the GenCoupes are released & the vehicles get out into the hands of the puplic we will really see their weaknesses & will be better prepared. But for those 1st early purchasers, they being the test dummies, are the ones that I feel sorry for (i.e my brother). Luckily he has opted for minor mods & is planning on opting for the ZF A/T tranny, which has no clutch is seems to be the strongest transmission in the line up by far. I on the other hand have no problem replacing the clutch with a better after market racing version, but I do not want to have to replace that 6sp transmission. It is just not in the budget & I've heard on some sites that it may be the weak link.

Wow, that's almost opposite of how I'd describe my own driving. I like to floor it whenever I can, get's me in trouble all the time. Most recently I floored it right in front of an unmarked police car, got a nice fat ticket for it too. Anyhow, I enjoy driving my car, but I don't too often speed, I mostly accelerate up to the speed limit really quickly.

Old topic, but new info

I've heard on another fourm that the clutch is similar to the Tiburon's:cry:, it is a 2 stage w/floating flywheel. I've yet to confirm this, but one of the members had the opportunity to drive one for review & said it also has the soft pedal feel of the Tibs. They also complained about the rear end coming out too easily, which may be great for drifting, but not so good under other circumstances.

Now, I also learned that the soft pedal feel can be easily fixxed by removing a spring in the slave cylinder. But, if the clutch is like the present Tibs, I will be replacing that w/a racing after market as soon as it starts to go.

Good info Tufast. Just referencing the tech docs, they refer to the clutch system as a dual mass flywheel (DMF) instead of a 2 stage. Seems many manufactures including the higher end cars like Porsche and BMW have gone this route to reduce vibrations in the drivetrain. Good for driveability IF you keep the vehicle stock. The problem with the DMF is they are tuned for specific setup so any changes can cause issues. Even changes to tire sizing can effect the clutch setup. Some of these issues ahve been reported by our Tiburion cousins. The best fix is usually to replace with an aftermarket unit if one is available. However this could be a problem for us here in these US since this is a new transmission made by Hyundai and there are no replacements as of yet available in the States. I'm sure the aftermarket will address this though. For those who are not familiar about this clutch system here is a post about it.
