    Whats up with my trans/clutch?

    Well, I just got my car back today. Got a spec 2 clutch/billet flywheel, a B&M ripper shifter and a new slave cylinder and got my reverse fixed. The car drives just fine. But after $1000, thats right $1000, its hard to get into first and reverse. After paying out the ass for all that fu**ing labor, you would think a better job could have been done. The spec clutch came with a shim for the slave cylinder, but I guess it wasnt enough. So, what else can I do to make my shifts better? I dont understand why is doing this.

    Also, I can be sitting still, in first gear with the clutch all the way to the floor and rev up the car, the car moves forward just a little bit. Is that just the clutch needing adjustment or something?

    yes your hard shift into 1st and reverse is because the clutch isn't fully disengaging the engine and trans. Same goes for the forward movement with the clutch pedal to the floor. You might need more shims for the slave or maybe there is a little air left in the hydraulics.

    I think I may need more shims. Can where can I get more at? Are shims easy to put in? What about an aftermarket slave cylinder if the shims dont work?

    Owning a 9 sec ricer is like coming out of the closest: at first you'll surprise everyone, but in the end you're still gay

    Ok, do they make an adjustable slave cylinder? Do you think that will fix the problem?

    Nope, hence the spacers provided. What master cylinder are you running now? stock? You can get an adjustable master like the McLeod unit. There's another good one the market (slightly more than the McLeod unit) but I can't seem to remember the name right now.
