Do you have just a sport pressure plate or an aggressive clutch disc as well?

I have a racing clutch installed in my car, and would not recommend installing one if you plan on driving in any kind of traffic, especially rush-hour. If you drive your car strictly on weekends, as I do, a racing clutch would be OK. If you drive it in traffic, it will get on your nerves because you can't let out the clutch smoothly at low RPM's unless you really ride the clutch, which is a no-no for a racing clutch. Mine operates the best when engine RPM's are between 2K and 3K, and you let it out quick w/a fair amount of throttle. In traffic, this will put your headlights up someones tailpipe in a hurry.

Yes, I have a lightened pressure plate as well. The clutch disc is a 4-puck style racing disc.
