ok here is something that i coulnt find in the MANUAL since my last thread turned out to be a huge deal about it..
for my clutch peddal, i have to let it go TOO far for for engine to engage and move, its def. not slipping because it runs fine but like i said i gotta let it go at like 3/4 of the way up..
im gonna upgrade it once i get some $$$ and get a stage 2 from AWE but until then is there a way to fix this..[wrench]

Stock engagement point is pretty high. Sounds normal to me

yea but i want to adjust it and is there a way to do so..
i drove my buddy's 01 S4 the other day and the clutch is completely i different..
i kno its a complete different tranny but you kno the point im tryin to make, i relesed the clutch about halfway and the car started goin..and it was like that with EVERY manual car i drove..
(S4 was fucking sweet too lol boost kicked in at about 3500-4000 rpm, chiped and intake, made my 2.8 feel like crap haha)

Nothing you can do about the clutch engagement because it is hydrolic adjusted. The only way I can think of is having the surface where the clutch meets the flywheel machined down a bit when you do the clutch swap.

the only car ive driven thats stick is mine. when i went to drive my cousins civic i stalled it because i thought it would catch a quarter inch from released like mine. thats right, i stalled a civic. as for adjusting it its been asked before and no one has an answer, poopie sounds right.

I talked to a guy that works at a VW dealership and he said just about everyone that comes to test drive cars always stalls them becuase of the fact that they let out so high and they dont expect it...my 97 Jetta did it, and so does my 98 a4...just a german thing i guess

its not THAT bad. i mean, ill alternate between my moms sentra and my B5 and its not really drastic...then again im used to driving both, lol.

OP, youll get used to it, give it time.

and stop replying to that other thread if you want to actually get helpful answers, like these ones.

My dads M3 is nearly impossible to drive smoothly after I drive my car. Even when the clutch and etc was stock, it was still impossible. Now it's even worse...

Buy a Honda, I hear their clutches engage earlier. And its more fitting for you. I think the manual is only 2 pages long too.

My 99.5 1.8t is at the top and has been for the stock and SouthBend clutch. The 2001 S4 I had as a company car was about 1/4 of the way up and got even lower with the RS4 clutch. That one likes to be pushed deep into the carpet and grabs as soon as it is off the carpet. It took some time to get used to switching back and forth.

Which car did you prefer as far as clutch goes?

Yes I'm a retard and set people up, I do it all the time, ask everyone. And if its over then why did you go back and post more BS to try and enforce your story. Lies lies lies, you are the type of person this forum, even world would be better off without. I tried to be nice and post some links for you about your clutch but you continue your bitching.... Good for you

You "apolAgize" but you still can't admit to being an asshole? Seriously? Sure everyone is a bit harsh when it comes to the searching thing, but it's useful in jogging a point into your brain to not post ish like that. But you reacted to all those individuals (myself included) like a small child. Furthermore, you went a step beyond that and tried to pose as an AZmod and IM DeanUW, who happens to be a good friend to a lot of AZers. In fact, I noticed that you didn't have tint. Looks like you wont be getting that hookup from him. He helps a crap ton of peeps install ish and tint their cars and all you do is bash and whine. Seriously dude. you need to leave this forum or abide by a few rules and courtesies. I've been here long enough to know that. And trust me, I have had my run-ins with bad posts. But I didn't scream like a little girl. I request that you end this thread, having recieved enough info, and end your previous threads. And then, just move on and have some civil conduct among the forum. It's really getting old. You fucked up, so move on and earn a little respect among others. Maybe they can forgive you. Looks like a lot are being pretty nice about it.
