Here are my only curiosities I've noticed so far. Sometimes the pedal feels stiffer than normal but it's hard to pinpoint any consistency to it. I don't mind the resistance but I'm curious why it feels different only sometimes. It's almost as if it has resistance right after the engagement point. Also, getting going in first is sometimes shaky. There are occasional vibrations as it feels like the clutch is just catching. Could just be driver error as the engagement point is higher and I will admit I'm no Stig driver...hahah I wonder if it has anything to do with button type disc? And maybe the change in pedal feel is due to the disc heating up and becoming more grabby?

I've also started driving differently with this clutch...I used to push the pedal to the floor for every shift (I have a clutch stop), but now that the engagement point is much higher than stock I can just tap the clutch pedal and be shifting much faster.

Good to see your enjoying it! I can't speak to the reason for potential grabbiness mine has been much more settled down not that its all re-broken & I have a working TOB . Keep us posted on clutch if you have any other updates or changes always interested to hear
