Anyone else's car pull the clutch pedal in when taking off? I Have a high mileage(90k) V that pulls it in for pretty much my whole 60. I thought it was my tired, old clutch that was obviously on it's way out but recently put a shiny new centerforce in there. First trip to the track with the new clutch gave me the same bs. Only seems to do it at the track. Is it some kind of safety feature? If so, How do you take it off? Nobody I've talked to has ever heard of this and kinda look at me like I'm crazy...

Am I crazy?

Remove the spring at the top of the clutch pedal. Same problem with C6 Z06 for people who track their cars. It usually happens after spirited clutch use. There is a bimodal spring that pulls the clutch downy that's not needed with an aftermarket clutch.

Yes I posted about this happening to me at the track last year. Clutch pedal went to the floor when I launched the car at the track. Still didn't stop me from burning up the clutch. Never happened on street tires since they just spin. I have the dyad in now but just finishing up the break in period and won't hit the track for at least a month. This is shitty news if this could still happen...bummer!

Guard dog, you mean at the pedal itself? More details needed...I didn't put the dyad in to have this shit happen again....

I did this on my Z and constantly siphoned out the dark clutch fluid. It never happened after that. I'll have to try this on the V.

Yea, Wireless, I thought the same thing. Disappointing

Guard Dog, Can I get some more info about that? I see the spring you are talking about but it looks like that brings the pedal back up.

The spring actually pulls the pedal down at the top of the pedal travel and pushes it back up at the bottom. It's bimodal, it essentially centers the pedal. You can move the pedal with your hand while the car is parked and in neutral and see what I mean. It will help the pedal move downward to a certain point and then offer increasing resistance after the midway point.
With an aftermarket clutch, if you pop it out, the pedal drift should go away. If in wrong, you can always put it back.
