Steel or Aluminum flywheel? Are the flywheels balanced? What's the approx. price range for parts and labor? Thanks.

Does this clutch set up fix the pedal sticking to the floor issue.

I haven't had any sticking clutch pedal issues so I couldn't say. make sure your clutch hydraulics don't have air in them. I've heard of the clutch pedal sticking problem but i haven't had one to be able to diagnose the problem.

I suspect the pedal issue is from an over heated pressure plate. My first pass at the drag strip was fine. So was the second. Had issues on my 3rd and 4th passes. It was a test and tune. I did not let the car cool down like I should have between runs. I was trying to ride the clutch a little to help it slip some coming out of the hole. I assume that is were I made a lot of heat.

Shouldn't be a pressure plate issue, but yes it does get really hot inside the bell housing, could possibly be the theory of clutch fluid boiling. interesting.
