Default clutch

Is the clutch pedal gonna stick to the floor? If not I might buy one. they look good but GM always has some B.S. that pisses me off. Even though I have owned 3 camaros and 2 pontiacs.

Well I have driven more six speeds than I have fingers and I do not get your above post. It is incoherent.

I believe the OP was referring to the fact that some T56 equipped GM products have an annoying problem of the clutch pedal sticking to the floor when "aggressively" shifting That is what the drill mod on the master cylinder of the clutch was made to correct.

and yeah, to the OP I hope GM can correct tiny things like that but I would rather have 10 small problems like that than a crappy major component (see also 10-bolt rear end for the 4th gen F-body)

yes I was referring to the clutch pedal sticking to the floor when shifting aggresively. This aggrevates me due to the fact that I only have 53,2xx miles on the car.

Ok got it. Never had that happen every manual I have ever had was a Mustang. All my Camaro's have been autos But when you get a really good deal on an auto, as a student you have to take it.

Thank you, I know the post was a little bit out there but I was venting. I really like the 2009 camaro and will probably buy one if possible. I've had a total of 8 GM cars (3 Camaros) and 2 fords (1 Mustang). All cars have some kind of problem, but Gm knowing the Z28 is powerful should have made the Hydraulics for the clutch better. I don't feel I should have to do a drill mod to correct this when it could have been done right to begin with. I'm sure I will do the drill mod eventually. It really sucks when your racing and the pedal sticks.

I heard the clutch pedal will be mounted on the passenger's side rear head-rest, I can't actually confirm this though.
