That's true but they also cost double of what a single disc clutch would cost. Depends on whether you're happy with a $400-$500 single disc clutch that'll handle 400-500hp, or whether you prefer a $900-$1000 twin disc clutch that'll handle 900-1000hp.
It's 40 mm thick, that is about 1.57 inches. It does not decrese effort but it changes where the pedal is at any point. When you drive your brake pedal never goes to the floor if the braking system is up to snuff, so why would you design the clutch operated by the other similar length leg adjoined at the butt in the same seat to go all the way to the floor at start up and nearly so when changing gears?
Tape a 2 X 2 X 1-1/2 piece of wood to your pedal and try it. That's like a piece of 2x4 (1-1/2" thick they are) cut 2" long and 2" wide.
I promise you, the effort won't change but the apparent effort it requires from you will drop a bunch because you will not be extending that left lag in near as straight a manner. Because of the angles the effort will seem less as it is just easier than straightening that leg all the way to the floor.
Back in the old days and other cars I've had the clutch pedal did not go to the floor and was often parked slightly higher than the brake as it does take more travel, so they started it higher.

I have one of these and it works great allowing me to sit further rearward. Prior to the pedal extension I had to be much closer to the steering wheel to push the clutch all the way to the floor.
Back to the OP's question on a lighter clutch. My left knee is not the best and I've wanted to get a lighter clutch for mine also. I few weeks back I sat in a new Corvette at the local dealership and could not believe how light the pedal was. I believe they use a twin disk setup, but its a night and day difference between mine. Any idea how they do it?

Here is a guy that is pretty excited about the light pedal pressure of his ACT twin disk clutch. This happened to be on a SVT mustang, but I would think its worth checking into the ACT model for our cars.
Easy. I would get a divorce. Good reason as any. If your wife does not support you on this take it as a sign of things to come. Wish you the best.
He said divorce from the Mustang, not his wife.
OP: Twin Disc clutch FTW. When I had my 2000, I swapped from an Auto to a magnum T-56, and went with a Mcleod Twin Disc. That was a cable clutch and it still had lighter pressure than my 2011.
Also, keep in mind, you shouldn't be sitting far enough away that your leg is straight with the clutch pedal depressed, it should still have a slight bend in it. There are a multitude of safety reasons for this, especially in the event of an accident, so you might want to re-adjust your seating position as well.
