Re: Clutch Troubles...

First thing to check is your adjustment, how far off the floor does the pedal come before it picks up?

Re: Clutch Troubles...

Just adjust the clutch cable first, see if it helps. Give it a turn or two at a time clockwise on the firewall, see if it makes a difference. It did on mine.

Re: Clutch Troubles...

From memory, the clutch pedal is supposed to be 140mm (+/- 3mm) from the floor, if it isn't, then the clutch needs adjusting...


Cheers,
Dave

Re: Clutch Troubles...

Get a heavy duty clutch and set the bastard really low to the floor :) Awesome for launches and quick gear changes
