Tate Fanning had the same clutch setup with a Tilton internal slave, and he reports that the feel of the external slave setup I have is roughly the same as the Tilton.


Hope that's easy enough to understand lol

Oh that's good to know. Did you guys both have the same size master cylinder? Tilton recommends a 3/4 master but I wonder if you could get a 5/8 to give you enough travel, and a lighter pedal.

That I do not know. I got the 5/8 master from him so I assume it did not work with the Tilton

I used a 3/4 MC with a tilton, and it's a bit heavy with a ~5:1 ratio and touchy with a ceramic clutch. I think a 0.700 or 5/8 would be the way to go if your pedal ratio is in the 5:1 area

The reason for this is the .75 inch Wilwood MC (same as Tilton 75 series) has only 1.1 inch stroke. The FAG MC has 1.3 inch stroke. When I switched from a FAG to the Tilton in my car, I moved up to a 13/16 inch bore, which restored the fluid volume to my slave to match the longer stroke FAG MC and I got full use of my pedal again.
