clutch ?

If you are going to go anywhere, better make sure your tranny can handle the load. Gear changes for the power hungry should be talked about here. Is that a LSD I see in your pocket?

A1 pedal feeling stiff? Muscle cramps in your left leg got ya down? The answer then is a new clutch cable from your local german parts house.

A1 clutch cables are notorious for getting stiff due to poor lubrication. Get a new cable (cause chances are your current one is wearing into the plastic tube) and dump some good lube into it before putting it on.

Please explain, because all I've seen are single piece clutch cables.
