Probably no surprise to anyone who has already gone through this, but if anyone is doubting a hard clutch could be because of a cable I am here to tell you otherwise. I am hoping I can convince you to spend the $150 and get it fixed.

I was having the same issues with my clutch pedal effort. So much so that I actually twisted my knee and my wife could no longer drive the car (she had to pull on the steering wheel). It was getting so bad that I was considering a hydraulic conversion. I figured that a cable couldn't make that much of a difference and something else had to be wrong. I emailed Jack at Maximum Motorsports and explained what was going on. In what I am sure is an almost cut/paste response since I am sure so many people complain about it, he told me to check a few different things but that it is usually the clutch cable. I had an after market cable, quadrant, and adjuster but not from MM.

I received it last week and I have to tell you that I am a believer. I just about put my foot through the floor and this is with a stage 2 ACT. Bought the entire kit from Maximum Motorsports and just finished installing it. Cannot get over how different it is. Just had to share.

Is that with the OEM cables?

Both..oem and heavy duty..

it was breaking on ends of casing..not the cable..

After new clutch I knew it had to be something stupid..

Seen some info from google search and seen oil cable before install. .

Wow that is amazing. What type of oil did you use? I don't need it but perhaps someone who will find this will.

I have always read OEM cable and OEM throw out bearing only. All others are junk.

Yeah I read that after I install my aftermarket ones. Haha
