Sorry its not a very technical reply but hope it helps!
Hi all,

Same problem here, particularly in reverse. Struggling to find the biting point clutch/throttle point to release brake - just had a new clutch fitted.

Its a bit of a problem as I can't judge how much of each is needed to release so the car is jolting a lot as I take off.

How did everyone fare? Did anyone find a solution?


Also, the car is less 'zippy' since I've had the clutch changed is that normal?
