Well, to be fair, it's possible some cars came better adjusted than others. There does seem to be very significant differences in personal experiences with the clutch. I always try to look for the positives to every situation, and this clutch controversy has led me to learn how to set up the clutch myself, so now I can fine tune it to the way I like it. If this hadn't happened I'd be blissfully driving around forced to endure whatever setting the assembler happened to feel like doing that day.what's all this about clutch adjustments?
what about all these posts saying the fresh-from-the-factory clutch setting is 100% perfect and everyone who cant handle the stock on-off clutch just needs to learn how to drive a stick?
or do those now get filed under the same "told you so" as the powerloss threads?
Hey btf, it might still be worth trying out the adjustment to see what you think. You can always return it to stock if you mark the stop bolt and count the number of turns. Once you've done it the second time is quite quick. I did have to give my leg a bit of time to readjust though, as I had been trying to learn the clutch. But the re-learning curve was way shorter than the first time as I was going to back to reflexes learnt from 30yrs of the same type of clutch feel and action.You can also add the speed6 is barely faster than a 6s threads.
I've gotten used to the speed6 clutch. It's pretty brutal though. Everyone who's ever driven my car had a hell of time with the clutch.
To all of you, do be a favour if you can. Even if you don't try the adjustment, take a look at the color of your spring, as mentioned in bold 3/4 the way through my posting. Thanks!
