UCP Clutch Petal

I was reading in the sponsor section about UCP's all-aluminum short-throw clutch pedal. Does anyone have any experience with it or care to comment?

Thanks

I have it and love it. It is a little tedious to install, but a damn fine piece, both in machining and instruction.

We have done quite a bit of them. Replacing the plastic OEM one really helps get the slop out of the pedal and more feel. Its also has 3 mounting point for pedal feel adjust ability.

Any questions feel free to PM me.

I have one. Honestly I feel no difference between the pedal itself. I did the clutch spring removal first and then swapped to this pedal later and it felt exactly the same. I may have to add the clutch spring back in to feel a difference.

Well obviously a vendor and the company that built it will say it makes a huge difference. Maybe with the spring in place that allows for adjustment makes a big difference, but without that spring, it feels pretty much identical to stock (without the spring).

What's the purpose of the spring removal in the first place? Do you mind educating me?

Thanks

I'm also interested in feedback on this piece, I've had my car about three weeks now and the clutch leaves something to be desired.
