braided clutch line question.

Anyone running a steel braided clutch line? Just curious if it makes a noticeable difference? I know the braided brake lines were a great addition to my braking system! If no one has tried yet, I'm happy to be the guinea pig. Let me know. Thanks.

Re: braided clutch line question.

..thought the clutch line was a hard line?

EDIT: ah i see now, just looked at the diagram for it. and read up on them some. suppositly you wont feel much of difference. its alot like the SS brake lines. you wont feel a difference unless your rubber lines are already ****y/cracked/etc. or if your at the track with your car. the reason i say at the track is because as you use it more/harder/faster/etc the fluid heats up causing the rubber to expand... so unless yours are needing to be replaced or you race your car alot and hard then theres no need for it.

same goes for the SS brake lines. unless your tracking your car alot, to were your brakes are heating up causing the rubber lines to go to ****, or you line are just flat out gone bad. there no reason to get them..

Re: braided clutch line question.

I'm not sure why you'd want to go from a hard line to a braided line. The braided line will give slightly more than the solid metal tube. The line will move rather than the slave cylinder. You'd get a different feeling peddle, I just don't know think it will be better.

If you've got the desire, give it a try and tell us how you like it.

Be sure to note whether or not you include the clutch damper in your system. The damper is shaped like a hockey puck behind the pass wheel under the ABS.

It is a hardline from the clutch cylinder to the mount on top of the tranny, then is a rubber hose over to my throw-out/piston assembly.
