Give it a little time to wear in, especially with a stage 3, try putting it into low before reverse, that will stop any synco travel that might still be happening. I ran some stage 3 clutches in my rotary hotrod and it took about 300 miles to get it fully broke in and seating properly, just try not to burn it or you will have a time getting it to seat.

I was thinking getting tranny pulled out again to see of something is loose...i had clutch kit before and the pedal was hard same stage..the guy that did that job did horrible job in it put wrong screws in and it really damaged my cltuch it was scraping it from inside...only lasted 6 months replace again done the right way this time but the difference on pedal is that this time is softer like almost as soft as factory clutch..is that something that might cause problem?..put new throw out bearing also...

It is normal for a hydraulic clutch to have a lighter feel that a cable or linkage clutch and on some kits the throwout bearing is larger and that also makes feel softer cause it hits more surface. Personally I would run it a while and get it broke in, then if you still don't like the way it's working pull it back down, but I think it will settle in and work like you want it too.

Thanks for the hints..i will do this to see what i come up with!!
