I left mine only 5mm thick, which was all I needed.

Honestly, with my seat adjusted to a comfortable position for the throttle and brake, the clutch was WAY too deep, and I had to overextend my foot to reach the bottom. On most shifts, I never reached the bottom of the pedal throw. With the clutch stop there, it taps down perfectly and feels "right". I think my actual clutch throw would be the same with or without the stop because I had to try so hard to get the clutch pedal all the way down.

I have 13k on my car and have found that the 1-2 shift has gotten easier, quicker (letting it go smoothly without forcing the shift) and smoother over time, especially after about 5000 miles. It sucks to hear you are having this issue. I hope it can get settled.

Another question: Did you get fresh tranny fluid at the run-in service?
