    Clutch Question

    So I noticed something weird about the clutch lately and I was wondering if someone could help me figure it out. When I havent driven the vehicle for..lets say overnight, after letting the car warm up and idle. When I first drive the car, the catch point will seem like it's lower to the floor. I dont know if it's what you call sticky. I've never had clutch problems before. The car has 77k, not sure if it's the original clutch or not. but it's an 01. Anyway, after driving around town a little bit, the clutch will feel fine. It's almost like the clutch needs to warm up itself. Someone had mentioned it could be the master cylinder? Im not sure. Any thoughts??

    Clutches do need to warm up.
    I have noticed the same thing on mine.
    When I used to go out looking for street races (back in the day) I had to take the long way out to the strip just to make sure everthing was warmed up and ready.

    well that's good news cuz i really didnt want to have to fork out the money for a new clutch. I noticed something similar on my vette, but not nearly to the extent as on the t/a. then again they're two different cars

    Yeah I currently have 129K on my original clutch and it still acts the same.
    It doesn't grip quite like it used to but I'll be doing an LS7/LS2 combo with all new hydraulics after Tax time next year
