I am curious to know how stiff the clutch is on everyone elses mkII. i have an 84 rx 7 and i can engage the clutch by puttin a little more than the weight of my good on it. While on the supra its a great deal more stiff and i cant really feel the friction point.

mines not stiff... its got a lil resistance, but not much, and it also engages almost instantly, lol
i think ive got about 1.5-2 inches of travel for full engagement
:)

nice and quick shifts :)

im wondering if my clutch squeaking when i am pressing it down is the cause of all the friction. i sprayed some wd-40 on it n that gets the squeak to go away..but still pretty tight...

Try flushing out your clutch lines with fresh fluid. Should be done every couple of years anyway. Old nasty fluid can make it a bit harder to press and damages the lines too.

Mine used to be a lot stiffer, then when I rebuilt my slave cylinder (cuz it developed a leak) it got a bit lighter. Then, of course, within a month the master cylinder started to leak. Rebuilt it and it got a lot lighter then. Big difference.

I have both an RX7 and a Supra - the RX7 cluch is really light - it has to contend with a high rev very low torque engine. The Supra is the opposite so the clutch is considerably heavier. I also use a ACT 6puck which increases the feel a bit so there's a very noticeable difference.

what u need is some lube on the clutch horn. ur peddle should always be really light. i think its anti sieze that ur susposed to use but cant remember. just make sure u only use a little or it will fly onto ur clutch disk then u'll shift real nice and chatter (the clutch) all the way down the road.
