Clutch install around nova

So my clutch went out today at work. Tysons area. Hoping there is a good mechanic close by who knows about Z's. Thanks

I think Hill's Garage is in your area. No personal experience, but have always heard good things.

When had my clutch done I just checked out a couple of speed shops in the area and picked the one with a bunch of high end cars in the lot... our cars aren't terribly different than any other average clutch job, just make sure they know to replace the MC/CSC (this one with an upgraded part!) at the same time. I supplied all the parts and fluids to the guy - ZSpeed HDCSC, OEM MC, SS clutch line, Z1 Clutch/Flywheel, alignment tool, hydraulic fluid.

Thanks for the support!

Found a sponsor pretty close, MooreAutomotive.

Plan to have the car towed to Moore tomorrow.

The clutch was about a year old, stage 3 south bend.
So that doesn't make a lot of sense.

Annapolis Junction, MD, isn't close to Tysons Corner.

They're in Pasadena, MD. Even farther away than Annapolis Junction.

The clutch is a year old and already toast? That doesn't make any sense. Doubt it's the clutch.

What CSC did they put in with the clutch? Did they do the CMC at the same time? You issue is probably with one of those.
