    Ok, there are several different threads that discuss this but they also talk about other items that I don't really care about. This thread is simply to state what you set your adjustable pivot ball height up to (compared to stock). This is to get a good census of what people are using. Simply list -

    Flywheel:
    Fork:
    Throw out bearing:
    Pivot ball delta from stock:

    Flywheel: No clue. Came with the car
    Fork: Stock
    Throwout bearing: Stock Ford
    Pivot ball: 4mm shorter from the stock pivot ball height

    My car came with the RXT already installed. So I didn't have a stock height to start from. I took a shot in the dark from what I've read on here and it worked. I also removed the weight in the fork to get a little extra room.

    Pivot Ball: 4.5 - 5 mm shorter using Lakewood #15503

    I do have a firewall adjuster and had to adjust it some to get the 1/8in clearance.
