zl1 clutch vs ss clutch

I will be getting a zl1 soon. How does the clutch compare to a 2012 ss? Is it the same or have a heavier feel? The 2014 gt500 clutch I did not like. Also when you step out of the ss and into the zl1 and drive it for the first time. How much different does it feel?

Twin disk no comparison, oh car either. You would get a better comparison with a 1LE..

It's heavier. In my experience between my 2011 ss and a 2014 1le it's a bit crisper. I prefer a heavier clutch pedal but it's not taxing at all.

Go test drive one. I couldn't feel much difference between my 2010 SS and the ZL1. Pedal firmness and release point are pretty much the same.

As far as the driving experience. There is no comparison!

ZL1 pedal only needs to be depressed half way to shift on my car. It makes shifting that much faster.

pressing the clutch in 0nly half way sounds risky... if you are off then you will be grinding those gears away.
