i was just wondering how much free play you guys have in you clutch pedals with the firewall adjuster....seems like the less freeplay in it the better it shifts but i dont want to fry the tob. mine goes down about an inch before getting hard

Ray, Sounds like a personel problem:D :D

j/k

I worried that I didn't have enough slack in mine. I layed under and looked, the cable is not tight when the pedal is at rest, I'd say mine goes down about the same amount before anything starts to happen.

Hmm, thats weird. . .mines hard all the time. J/k, seriously though, my clutch has changed a lot since I got the car. It is much easier to engage, the clutch effort has gotten much easier, I am not sure why.

I also noticed that the clutch effort is now much less than new, 03 cobra with a 1200 miles. There is a method of adjusting a stock clutch cable but it is not as good as a firewall adjuster. If you gently pull the clutch pedal up and it is loose enough, you will hear a click and it will tighten the cable some. This only works if the cable is pretty loose.

I installed the Motion Dynamics clutch pedal adjuster and it got rid of the slack and brought the clutch pedal down closer to the brake. Its pretty simple to install and I have been happy w/ it so far

OK - sorry for all the questions, but what does the motion dynamics clutch adjuster do vs. the other clutch quadrant & firewall adjusters? It looks pretty simple, does it shorten pedal travel if it lowers the pedal. Any trouble shifting - I had problems shifting unless the pedal was completely depressed.

It works in conjunction w/ an aftermarket quadrent and firewall adjuster. It lowers the physical position of the clutch and shortens travel. I no longer fell like Hideo Nomo when pushing the clutch in. No problems shifting. The clutch fully engages/disengages. It was only $29 shipped and makes driving much easier b/c you dont have to lift your knee so high. Worth every penny IMO.
