Default grip force clutch

Anyone ever had any experience with a ebay grip force clutch? I got a stage 2 grip force clutch and I stalled it last night. My pedal is really high now and the clutch slips like crazy. (Only when using nos) It slips worse then the old worn ou autozone clutch.

Are you sure everything is installed correctly? I think I've odd the pedal is so high. Almost like everything is pushed back and not engaging.

sounds like the pressure plate is too deep or the Throw-out bearing is too tall. do you have a link?

I took it back out and installed a needle bearing pilot. That wasnt the issue nor did it have anything to do with the pedal. I just wasnt able to get a needle bearing at the time when I did the clutch. But when I took it back out the new pressure plate is sitting to deep. I noticed on the old autozone clutch that the pressure plate stuck out a little but more then the new does. Now this new one is a stage 2 BUT it is a gripforce ebay clutch. So I dont know what to expect from it. It may work in 500 miles or I may of learned my lesson and will be buying a spec clutch soon ill try and find a link to the clutch that I bought. But for being a stage 2 the pressure plate should of been sticking out more then the autozone clutch for a stiffer pedal/ more gripping power

I don't think grip comes from size. it should fall inside the dimensional specs for the factory equipment only beefier
