No flaming intended.

I dont bash that guy for marketing his idea. I bash him though on price. $10 -15, more realalistic. Maybe $20, maybe, but not $45...lol
So find a piece of delcron, cut it to the right length, and attach it by double sided tape, same as the d-wolf kit. Superglued coins work the same way, Its just about impossible to break the stack apart at this point, and I'll guarantee the tape will fail way before the superglue. Waste of money IMO though, I spent less than $1 to get the same result

It's just my personal preference to fabricate something or buy that looks like it were made for it rather than not, like loose change from my pocket or furniture skid pads.
Props to you on the thought of superglue. Good idea.
This is what these forums all about and DIY's, improve on core ideas or fixes shared here.

If that guy were to have only charged like $10 with $5 shipping at most, it would've been worth to me to buy...receive, peel (or maybe superglue ), stick, done, enjoy.
R&D on thickness already done and looks like it were made for the application.
Again...purely only my preference, not supporting this guys price he charged, but yes still support his marketing idea.
A lot of members here market their ideas, fabricate products and offer for purchase on our behalf.

You spent under a dollar to get the same result. It's all good bro...no worries as long as you're happy with the results and how it looks.

Here is a link for the Delrin rods that you can order and cut to length if you'd rather have a solid piece

hey guys,

IM TALKING ABOUT WHEN THE CAR IS OFF.

did u notice that when you push the clutch all the way down to the floor without the mod, you hear this noise under the car or it maybe coming from the hood or something. it sounds like the clutch is disengaging

after i did the mod and you push it all the way down, you do not hear that noise like before without the mod.

if you try it without the mod you will know what im talking about and then try it without the mod.

IS THIS BAD OR ANYTHING? I WAS JUST CURIOUS BECAUSE I DIDNT HEAR IT ANYMORE.

thanks for the help

If done correctly, no. You are just removing the free pedal travel within the stock clutch engagement travel
