Reinstall and it comes back. McLeod says it's in the trans. Gm teched the vibration in trans with stock clutch reinstalled and said it was a good trans with stock clutch.
Over the winter I had trans rebuilt and upgraded by an authorized tremec shop they recommended and it's still the same. Rpm related, not speed. Only when clutch is engaged so not the engine.

I m driving now and staying out of the range but plan on a different clutch eventually.
I have this same chatter and I've adjusted my driving style to compensate as well. New flywheel, LS shop installed. I do have the 1000hp RXT, however.

There are many reports of the same feel after I searched for a bit. Hopefully you have a better experience with the 1200 but I've learned to live with it and it's not that bad. If anything happens with it I will switch it out in a heartbeat though.

I’m very happy to report that I have zero vibration issues. Only put 5 miles on it so far, but I think it drives excellent for a clutch that can hold 1200hp. I got a little “chatter” or shake when i first pulled the clutch out, but the engagement position is different, so thats probably my fault. I adapted quickly. Im 100% satisfied so far.

After 90 miles, the pedal engagement point seems to have changed. Now the clutch disengages almost immediately as i push the pedal in. This makes taking it out in first gear a longer process, and is akward. Why did that change?

When i got my McLeod RST, my clutch engagement changed too. it now grabs much higher than my stock clutch (towards the top of the pedal travel). Idk if this helps or not but wanted to share.

Good to know thanks. Mine started off really low, which i liked. Hopefully the change is a normal part of the breaking process.
