Spec clutch shim slave cylinder or not ?

Anyone running Spec clutch stage 3+ on 2010 Camaro SS LS3 ?

If so, did you shim your slave cylinder with the provided spacer ?

I Know i have to measure if needed or not but need to know if people use it or no.

I have no experience with the Spec Clutch, but I have had to use shims. You have to measure the distances between the bearing and the bell housing face and the pressure plate fingers and the block. The fully extended cylinder should push the fingers in about 5/8th of and inch and the cylinder fully compressed should have about 1/8 of gap before it hits the fingers. Tick used to have a diagram for LS clutches.

Bottom line is, no matter whose clutch it is, you need to measure and make sure it's within spec. If it is in spec, it should work fine.
2010 SS - On3 kit with downpipe cutout, CTR 78/80, CompCam 239/251 620/632 122+4, and meth. Z28 suspension.

2011 Vert - 416/w 230/236 .612/.602 115lsa, 1LE suspension w/32mm rear bar. Z28 diff.

No shims needed. When I put mine in 2 seasons ago, I put steel flywheel, spec stage 3 clutch, new OEM slave. Not an issue with it. Were exceeding the power its rated at by a good amount and still no issues.
