I was leaning towards Ram before the street slayerpurchase. From what i have read about the ram it sounds like a great clutch.

Yeah. I think so too. Their literature on the subject is amazing too. Basically, tells you the different between single, double and triple disc systems, and various driving street, track and drag and which clutches they have for each.
They have some clutches that can be configured for any type of configuration, pedal adjusters, hydraulic bearing. Great company, great support.
Definitely, the overall way to go I think.

You guys all have good opinions and possible fixes on the problem as do lots of other threads on the issue... Thing that erks me is this has been going on since the 2010 model.. After 3 model years after-market clutch makers and GM themselves can't seem to come up with or agree on the exact cause and fix.. I just don't get it.. makes me wish for the old days of straight mechanical clutch linkage to throw out bearing fork.. Sure pedal was harder then but when something went south it was pretty obvious what it was.. Linkage broke, TB tore up or clutch fried.. I'm incline to agree that the whole system is junk......

The bigger issue is GM doesn't give a rats ass and keeps selling junk to consumers, doesn't take an responsibility and no recourse. Unfortunately, can't drive the car the way you want with this problem.

I agree, my left leg could take a firmer pedal for a reliable clutch.

2010 2ss/rs m6 - 19450 miles
clutch stick first reported 5k miles

I got the new clutch pedal.. via pi0486a.. few days ago and now bad vibration in new pedal as you release under load..
dealer doesn't agree the vibrations exists so I opened a ticket with gm..

haven't tested the new pedal for sticking yet..

Interesting so many with the same issue and GM wont try fix it.. A new pedal assembly REALLY? Now I've got synchronizers going bad and they don't think clunky shifting is an issue either. *must be driver error*

Just a FYI for some.... Went to dealer today and here is a photo of the PI0486A... this is a copy in B&W. Note the circled part 'Aggressive driving' was in red. This is not a recall so the problem must be seen by them... They'd keep it over night to see if it happens when cold the next day.. My issue is under agressive driving so I'm out of luck anyway... What i had them do is bring up a picture of the stock pedal assembly to compare to the replacement pedal.. wanted to see if it was different or GM was just throwing in the same old one... Well they couldn't find a match to the part number GM says is for the M10 V8.. Think they may have but not in their system... Their calling into GM to find out what's up and will let me know.. Must say they went out of their way to help.. But I do want to see a exploded view pic of the replacement pedal just to see what GM did about/to the old pedal assembly, if anything.

This is dissapointing, my clutch problem is because of spirited driving. At least the dealer is replacing the clutch. Maybe I should just have them install an aftermarket clutch...

That's a thought. Good luck figuring out which after market to go with. Tons of (threads on) things folks have done on here, from just clutch to also the hydraulic master & slave. Some say problem solved, some not.. If their doing the clutch for 'free' under warranty, Me, I'd be happy with that and worry about it later... I don't feel like spending a possible few thousand and it still might not be right... let alone trying to find someone in my area who knows what their doing. Good luck

Two GM clutches with T/O bearing, dealer warranty for sticking pedal. Same problem with pedal after aggressive driving, pressure plates are junk. Twin carbon clutch, problem solved.

StreetSlayer dual carbon. There are a few people using this clutch on this forum, maybe ask around and see if they had any pedal issues after the new clutch install. I have not heard of any.

It's not cheap but it solves the problem. Go with the Street Slayer and you will not be disappointed. I bought mine from Huffer when he switched to and auto (I know, what was he thinking). All I can say is I have not once had a stuck pedal since and the feel of the clutch is much more fluid than the stock setup with that goofy cammed release right at the end of the pedal travel.

This clutch easily holds my 465 RWHP and did the same for Huffer's 700. I drag race and road race and this clutc performs flawlessly in both environments and shifts at all rpm's. Not many that can say that I think.

That's good to hear, but do you have any other clutch mods like a remote resivior?
