ive got a twin plate in my fq300 and i think it may be worth while it seems that you dont need the full travel to select gears and pull away where do you get these bits of kit then saying that it is possible to make a stop to stop over travel just my thought

i feel it is deffo worth while if installing a twin plate unless you like pulling boxes out

Looks like a good idea to fit one, and easy to make.

So why aren't these supplied by the manufacturer with the clutch?

Is it essentially putting preload onto the clutch?

as a question does the bearing get to much pressure when it could be over travelling or is it also when you release the clutch to quick

I think the danger happens when you do a quick shift, it causes the bearing to over travel then when you depress the clutch a second time it can pop the wavey spring retaining clip out, i thought this is what happened to mine but now i have the box out again it turns out the release bearing has gone. i will still be fitting 1 of these though as i dont intend on taking the box out a 3rd time!!
