Default Pulsation in clutch pedal?

I've got a clutchnet red2x pp and an organic disc. There is a pusation that can be felt in the pedal when you push on it slightly (the free play zone). Once you hit the engagement point it no longer pulses. Any clue what that's about. I replaced and bled the slave when I installed it. I also moved the engagement point up because it was on the floor initially, like the ACT clutches. Maybe I need to move it back down?
edit: Crap...Been doing some reading and it seems it could be misaligned engine-tranny, bent pressure plate or missaligned flywheel... I'll try adjusting the clutch pedal and see if it's that. Otherwise I guess I'll wait till it fails and get an ACT.

yeah, that sounds like something is out of balance or not centered.

I'm very happy that I sent back my clutchnet instead of installing it.

the TOB rides on the PP's diaphram, if you feel anything it would be the entire assembly rotating out of balance or something odd like that....all i can think of....Unless adjusting the pedal out too far allows the tob to only make slight contact and spin off kilter....worth a shot to adjust the other way and see what happens.

its probably the clutchnet parts because that company sucks *** and they can lick my *****.

You should probably look into this problem immediately.
