So, if first gear, my clutch graps really high? Does this mean that my clutch is going bad? Is there any way to adjust it? Whats going on?

mine does the same shit...i have 18 inch hp evos and tein lowering springs..dunno if that makes any difference on that...it pisses me off that when i stop at a light it takes me 5 years to get out of first gear. The clutch grabs so damn high

I bought an aftermarket clutch and it was the same as stock. I hate it. My dsm's w/act's grabbed off of the floor. I just find where the grab point is at a light and hold it just below-also don't have to put it to the floor for fast shifts. Just get used to it.
Maybe in an inch between on and off. 200kmi of the same.

My South Bend OFE Stage 4 grabs about 1 1/2 inches from the bottom. It’s actually the exact same place as the OEM clutch; though the Stage 4 is MUCH heavier imo...
