Awesome, what clutch did you go with?
My g/f refuses to attempt at driving the miata. She got in one day and pushed the clutch down and it scared her away. The miata has to have twice the clutch resistance compared to my truck. Either way, i'd rather her not drive it anyway.

it's not as rough as you guys give it credit for to be honest.... i thought it was gonna be nasty hard gripping.... but i got use to it within the next mile or so, drive it like it's stock, even though the pressure on the clutch pedal doesn't feel stock =/

as for the master/slave cylinders.... i think they're shot.... they dont leak, but they gave out right when i was holding my ****** foot down on the clutch.... it was a weird kind of going out too!

i would have the stick on 1st gear... with my foot fully down to the ground, and it would disengage, and very very slowly... start reengaging, with my foot still fully down there!

FWIW, I replaced both, slave and master and added a stainless braided line and I'm still having problems with engagement on mine. :(

Done that. Every morning I have to adjust it a little more just to get it in gear.
