the v-clutch activates way too late in the game IMHO. as one member says, you're already on your way to the red zone by the time it kicks in. if you read the archives you'll notice that there are mods to remedy that, and someone has even found a "tropical duty" version that makes a lot of sense for some parts of the US. if the v-clutch were to really help, then you wouldn't need that resistive cooling mod i was talking about. it sounds like you haven't driven it that much since the repair. i would keep an eye on it. like i said, mine exhibited similar behavior after my HG repair and went through all the above, except for the v-clutch...
