Cliff, don't some hydraulic clutch systems run some sort of booster or something off vacuum like the way power brakes work? Wouldn't that be a way to take some of the exerted force off the driver's leg? A longer throw can't be the only way to make a clutch pedal lighter.

Never seen such a system in a passenger car, however they do exist in larger vehicles, and even at my age I have yet to see everything.

I have driven trucks with power assist clutches, having such a thing in a Mustang would really suck.

With regard to clutch pedal required force, I really don't know what the hoopla is about? People have to decide whether they want a performance car or a luxury car--if the latter then just get a slushbox and be done with it.

As compared to a Jap econobox or "ricer" the effort required in a Mustang is quite a bit more, however as compared to a diesel F250 it's rather light.

I have a Centerforce DF and it's still pretty light IMO. I have driven cars with much heavier ones.
