When driving your Audi B8, you'll quickly notice that there's an abundance of unnecessary leg movement to disengage the clutch. This excessive leg motion creates several problems such as an uncomfortable, non-driver's focused seating position, difficulty in consistently finding the clutch engagement point and leaves room for improvement on faster gear changes.
With the ECS Adjustable Clutch Pedal Stop in place, driving dynamics are dramatically improved! Our unique, height adjustable design allows you to fine tune clutch pedal feel to your preference, improving the connection between your foot and the transmission.
As you push down on the clutch pedal, the clutch disc becomes disengaged from the flywheel, allowing the transmission to become disconnected from the engine. However, there is a point within the clutch pedal travel where the clutch disc becomes disengaged, but the pedal keeps going past the point of disengagement. This is called "dead travel" and it leaves the clutch engagement point feeling more like a floating target.
By reducing the amount of travel needed to disengage the clutch, you gain consistency in take-offs and launches by always stopping the clutch pedal at the proper point, just before clutch engagement.
This unnecessary pedal travel is removed and taken up by the height of the clutch pedal stop, helping to lock into place the clutch disengagement point higher up off the floor for more consistent take-offs, faster gear changes and sportier pedal feel.
Easy installation. Utilizes factory clutch pedal stop slot - replaces the small, low profile OEM stop and is held in place with a set screw
With our Adjustable Clutch Pedal Stop installed, you can dial in the feel of your clutch engagement point higher off the floor. This gives you shorter shift times, more consistent launches and easier driving dynamics.
You can “creep” and take off from a light or a hill with greater ease with our Adjustable Pedal Stop properly setting the pedal height just below the clutch engagement point.
With less leg movement required to disengage the clutch, you can re-adjust your seating position further back for a more comfortable and confident driver seating position. Many people are forced to sit too close to the steering wheel to disengage the clutch, which can lead to your arms being bent improperly, not allowing you to take proper control of the steering wheel.
