I like mine on the bottom because I'd rather keep it on the floor and know where it engages at then try to hold it up higher then letting it out. Way better for drag racing in my book anyway :blush:

Sorry to hear that, Rick! I sure hope that they warranty it for you.

If the pedal engagement is too high, it could be that the clutch is not fully released, and it may slip as a result. If it is too close to the floor, it may not fully disengage, resulting in premature tranny wear. I like mine in the middle.

I have the exact opposite opinion and hated how the spec engaged at the floor.

I am short, so it could be our preferences are based on leg length

Even the middle might be ok but this felt like it was all the way at the top. My legs are a little long for that with these two metal hips it's hard it it's too high.

Yes I know what you mean. The Spec without the slave cylinder 1/8 spacer is right at the floor.
I'd like it about 2 inches off the floor or close so I'll mess with the spacer and see how it comes out.

Here's a picture of what happened when the bearing went bad. Dave, Jeff or myself have never seen it break like this.

Hi Yogi, no not the case just the front adapter plate. They run different bolt pattern adapter plates depending on what car the T56 is going into. These are run in some of the high-performance cars for Ford, Chevy and Chrysler. It's the same thing that's in the Vipers.
