Xlr8 street strip

installed xlr8 street strip with aasco flywheel 5-11-19 just curious about where clutch engagement point should be. Mine seems a little high 1/2 way'ish? Maybe other with same setup can chime in? Have 250miles on it so far and feels good just curious about the grab point?

I'd recommend reaching out to XLR8. They have great customer service and would be the best to tell you what you should be experiencing with their product.

The only other person, I know of on the CL side, running the xlr8 set-up is 2ndgentl . He has the xlr8 'Stage 1 Daily' installed on his J35A3 CLS6.

Maybe he will chime in and indicate where his 'clutch engagement point' is.

It might feel different because of the non-SAC pressure plate. If you bleed the clutch lines, it's very likely everything is fine. The OEM self adjusting clutch grabs way to early in my opinion.

Hey, sorry for the late response... I've had my "xlr8 Stage 1 Daily" now for at least 1 1/2 yrs and still holding up really good. The clutch engagement is almost 3/4 of the way up my clutch pedal, which is perfectly normal to me since I've gone through a few different clutch kits throughout the past and they have all had about the same engagement. I honestly would like it if it would engage about 1/2 way up the clutch throw, but I guess I'm used to it being this way now over the years of driving this car. It does seem that every other manual car that I have owned or drove had a lot shorter clutch engagement. I don't think there is a way to adjust the clutch throw on the CL, right??

Thanks for the input 2ndgentl. Since you have a non self-adjusting pressure plate with the xlr8 Stage 1 Daily, if you wanted to experiment to try and get the engagement '1/2 way up', you'd have to adjust from the pedal now. The attachment below shows the procedure.
