Default Mcleod clutch pedal pressure extremely hard

Is anyone else having this problem? I've adjusted and bled the MC but no change in the pressure need to depress this clutch. Is this normal or do I have a bad MC?

I ran a McLoed and gained 20 pounds of muscle on my left thigh lol. I had problems speedshifting it was so hard to push. Running a Spec 3 now and it's so much easier.

Is it the single disk kevlar? Mine is a bit stiffer than stock but nothing like you're explaining. Did you replace everything (throwout bearing, etc.)

I also have a twin disk and yes mcleod clutches are a lot hard.. and like 11bravo said you will see an increse in muscle with your left thigh hahah lol.. unless its really extremely hard and it might be your slave cylinder.. did you change your master cylinder already? if you havent you should try changing both.. it will help..
