Hi All, Please forgive me if I'm repeating a post. I've looked for a solution to my issue fairly thoroughly and both online or in person I have found little information on the subject specific to the automobile or mostly dismissive answers to the question: "What, if any component or piece of the transmission/clutch system governs the engagement point as it relates to pedal travel?" The car is a 2003 TT and when I had the cooling tubes pinned I had a stage 2 clutch installed. When I first bought the car I thought that the pedal "caught" high in comparison to our 2001 C4 and 2003 C2, I wanted to simply lower the progression and I expected the 600+ HP rated clutch to be heavier. In effect this all had the exact opposite effect. The clutch catches extremely high through about three degrees of pedal travel. Does anyone out there know enough about this system to perhaps comment on the situation? I am suspecting the springs govern the progression. But then what governs the spot where engagement begins? I would find the car far easier to drive if it could be moved closer to the floor. Right now I have to physically bend my knee to release the clutch and with so little progression it's actually hard to drive smoothly. I can honestly say I wouldn't buy it if I test drove it like it is now. Biggest mistake I ever made with a car. Any information or advice would be greatly appreciated.
