Two things to consider:

1) changing the pedal arm bushings is not the easiest job in the world, many people shy away from it. Given a choice, if they're not going to change the bushings anyway, the wider UUC clutch stop offers more functionality.

2) Please note in my previous post - UUC now offers replacement clutch arm bushings for $20/. They are available right now, details will be posted on shortly.

You make it sound like your CS is superior, but my take on it is different. Where you admit that your CS has a larger surface area designed to accomodate pedals with worn bushings, Ron went to the source of the problem...IN THE PEDAL. Instead of designing his product to accomodate the flaw, he fixes the flaw itself thus eliminating the need to work around it. The theory behind Ron's CS is that it is visually indistinguishable from stock. This is in part because in some race classes it is considered an illegal mod. Since his is stock looking, you get the form of stock appearance with the function of a CS.

Simply put: his CS isnt wider because it dosent need to be. Do his clutch pedal fix and the wont slide off at all.
