Thanks Jerry
unfortunetly they are on national backorder. I have about three more coming to me but not sure when, maybe in a week or two.

The plug you can get from napa i believe just make sure its epdm rubber
There is a guy on here who has the plugs but i can't remember his memeber name.

I have the EPDM plug to cap off the brake reservoir. Just trying to figure out a cost effective way to mail them, I'm open to suggestions. Be careful if purchasing these caps from local auto supply firms, most only carry natural rubber which will not hold up to brake fluid. There is a big difference in cost between a rubber and EPDM cap.

ZL1 pedal assy

So i recently got my ZL1 clutch pedal assy. as you can see it has an extra spring to help return the pedal. also i want to note something strange, The pedal assy came with a master cylinder but its a V6 master cylinder. weird, maybe someone at the factory screwed up or maybe they use V6 master cylinders lol.

I plan on doing this soon, just came back from the track! I hate this trans... I could not make one pass unless I shifted at 5,900 into 2nd without getting blocked out! Allot good a cam does when this thing needs a 6500 shift and I can't do it! Seems like this has worked for the people that have tried it, it makes sence too. My trans does not do it on the street, but a do a quick burn out on the track and try a 6000+ shift and it's like hitting a brick wall!

Has it been verified that the extra slave cylinder travel is not over-extending the release fingers of the pressure plate? If they were to bottom out against the fulcrum, the pressure plate fingers could crack and fail prematurely. It sounds like a great product, but just wanted to know if this potential issue has been considered. Thanks.

We've taken this into consideration and tested over and over again and it does not over extend or push the fingers too far. I've got over 25 cylinders out there with no problems so far. I've said it before and i'll say it again, There are way too many different clutch set ups and pressure plates for me to test them all.

Each master cylinder is tested on a jig set up before being shipped.
