    Default Standard Duty VS Heavy Duty - Pedal Feel

    I keep getting very mixed opinions on pedal feel when using a Heavy Duty clutch, some are saying there is no difference, others are saying its much heavier.

    Can people post there opinions up on there pedal feel and what clutch they are using.

    Im trying to decide between a Exedy Heavy Duty, and an Exedy standard duty, I wouldnt mind a stronger clutch, but most weeks Im doing over 1000km's, so I dont want a Heavy clutch either.

    Personally, with the T5 and a heavy clutch.... ITS A-LOT HEAVIER... however, as you said, everyone has an opinion. I found that it was harder to depress the pedal... which makes sense... the pressure plate is rated at a higher compression to take the load, as the pivot remains the same the pressure required is directionally proportaional to the increased load.


    just my theory anyway.

    Anyone else?

    From what I can work out majority of the people who didnt notice a difference have hydraulic clutches, not Cable. But still a few people with a cable clutch havent noticed the diffence. Got to order my clutch very soon, slipping every gear change and at random grows old.

    i have an exedy hd clutch in the vn which is cable and i can tel you that its fairly heavy but not over the top.
    i cant really say how much heavier it is over standard cos the ss never had a standard clutch in it when i got my hands on it.

    the best part about having a heavy clutch is that most ppl cant drive properly with them so they never ask to drive

    I cant compare because my VN never had a standard clutch and Ive never driven any other T5. But my Exedy HD isnt that bad. I found lubing the cable made a big difference as it was bone dry and still original. But on the other hand a mate of mine has the same clutch in his VL and its soooo much lighter (hydraulic).

    Hmmm, so many mixed opinions lol, Im thinking I will go standard duty, its going to hold upbeter then the slipping and shuddering piece of shit I have now. The car isnt flogged ever, and I want it to be as comfortable as possible to drive.
