Little help...?

I have a 2000 Prelude SH, just bought a month or so ago. It has a racing clutch in it, not sure which stage or anything, but the clutch is ridiculously tight, and wants to pop out as soon as you start releasing it. Now I know racing clutches are supposed to be tight, but this is almost to the point of not being able to drive it, at least without jumping everytime I take off. Is there any way to loosen it up a little bit? Just wandering. Thanks in advance!

Is there any adjustment for the take-up point? That would help, but not sure how much.

Take it to wherever you bought it from ( if it's a dealership) and tell them about it. If you've only had it a month you might catch a break and they'll fix it. If that doesn't work, find a tranny shop ( not a V8 tranny shop) and see what they can do.

Sounds like you got a stage 3 clutch where your toenail can engage the clutch :sick:

...crazy for DD & street purposes i have to say...nothing we can help you with here unless you replace the clutch with a more relaxed one...
