its not your driving style, loads of scoobs suffer with it.

theres no guarantee a new clutch will cure it so just try and drive round it.

Giving it a few more revs when you pull away helps.
As has reving the nuts off it and dropping the clutch launch style :shock: (but i wouldnt reccomend or do that myself)

Yep a lot of scoobs suffer with the judder when cold

Mine has been trying to do it for the last few days but a little more revs when pulling away stops it 8)

Nothing to worry about......unless it judders when warm aswell :shock:

Your right there Buzz. My UK scoobs suffered from clutch judder untill I gave them a bloody good launch. That would clean the clutch plate up for at least a month.
STI does not suffer from this but then its a differant clutch.

Hi
My scooby did that all the time when new (second hand). Subaru said they would replace it under warranty but he said it would make it worse.
Give it a few 0-60 8) usually the smell of burning clutch solves it
I also think it was how I use to drive :?: Pedal to the metal needed :twisted:


Good luck Kev 8)
