I noticed something a bit annoying with my Evo 6 (TME). The bite point is set very early. When pressing the pedal, it nearly immediately release the clutch, and as my current car has a bite point quite further down, I always end up holding the throttle a bit long than needed during gear change, resulting in the engine rpm going a bit up. Very annoying.

I don't know if that is because the clutch might be at the end of its life (never had an Evo 6 before), or if there is something I can do to move the bite point.

Cheers!

Sounds pretty 'normal' my clutch and flywheel are pretty much brand new and the bite point has been set pretty high (although I always fully depress the pedal). You can adjust the pedal travel any way. Just look in the manuals. :handsup:

If you want to check if your clutch is on its way out its a pretty easy test to be honest. Try and pull away in a high gear like 4th or 5th if it doesnt stall...:handsup:

Try adjusting pedal height to suit your own comfort /style ....tis easy enough to do , if its a new clutch its oft adjusted to suit ....and pedal bite point may get lower after bit of " ware" anyway ......the higher bite point can be in place to help avoid "issues" ;)
