    everyone should get a Tick master cylinder

    I have to tell someone! Thought my clutch had gone out cause pedal was stickin to the floor.So got to looking at clutchs and posted a question on here on what clutch i should get,( got no replies),but it doesnt matter. wanted to do it right so I ordered a TICK MC to start with,bleed and adj.it and hell yea clutch problem fixed.Good firm pedal,short pedal travel and fast shifts. Well worth every penny even though it just went up $25.Just wanted to share,and the sticky on installing the TICK was very helpful.

    Just get one,ive been getting used to it and love it,it drives like a whole nother car.right off the floor it just launches its self,shifts super fast,the clutch pedal sits way closer to the floor than the stock setup,you can feel every bit of the clutch.youll find your self stopping and just launching it and blowin threw the gears over and over.by far a have to mod.

    Just want to share my thoughts. I installed the tick master cylinder today. PITA to put in, but definitely worth it. Just as eatin said, the clutch pedal is almost on the ground. Definitely going to take some time to get used to. Shifting is much more smooth and less resistance going into gear than I had before. The biggest thing that I've found to be different is that the pedal is consistent.

    Gotta make sure to set it up right. I don't like it engaging pretty much AT the floor so i set it to reach the friction point slightly higher. The risk with these is making it TOO long and blowing out the slave. Where I have mine, the stock return spring will grab it at the top of travel and while still lower than stock I was able to adjust the cruise control sensor so that it still registers the clutch pedal being released. Overall I love my Tick and am REALLY glad I got it when I got the Monster stage 3 and a new slave.

    Thats the first thing i changed on my car, that along with a LS7 clutch

    At first my engagement was right off the floor, but now its moved up, i kinda like it there cuz from the pedal being in its highest position, i only have to push the pedal about 2 inches for full disengagement....just a little tap on the pedal allows for quick shifting
