The clutch action is very normal for a 400 HP engine with a hydraulic actuation. It's more position rather than feel. Those used to driving a 150 HP engine with mechanical actuated clutch will have some transition problems. Feathering the throttle while releasing the clutch is not a good technique on these machines. Hold some steady throttle and release the clutch in a controlled stroke.

Curious as to why feathering is not good for these cars.

I own a 2LT 6-speed stick. I was at the dealer the other day and they had an SS with manual trans. I asked to drive it and they quickly obliged.

The clutch catches slightly closer to the floor than the LT's. NO BIG DEAL. I had no trouble whatsoever. The car FREAKIN' ROCKS! SS or LT FTW!
