Slave cylinder let go

Well after about 10 runs today it looks like the slave cyl let go. Clutch to the floor and fluid running onto hot header from back of motor. Maybe blown line but probably not. O well seems like I found my week link. Was pounding the car hard repeatedly so shit happens

Ram makes an aftermarket slave cylinder.

If you are referring to the master cylinder, the link in the post above this one is about it.

I'm also running the ACT twin, and I just had the Ram Clutch Slave cylinder installed after my factory slave died. I thought the twin would help, but it didn't.

Summit has the Ram Slave for $500. It's Billet and I can't see it failing. If you haven't found one yet, I'd look into it.
