Porsche Crest Impossible Clutch!

Hey guys,

After about 800-1000 miles of driving and smooth first 500 of break in, my car is still VERY hard to drive.

98 Supercharged
SPEC Clutch with lightened flywheel.

The stock clutch wasn't bad at all but this new SPEC clutch was supposed to not be so difficult.

* The engagement point is VERY high, almost at full pedal release (the hardest part to let out slowly) I heard this can't be adjusted much.

* The total enagement travel length feels like 1-2 inches (not a bad thing but just adds to the difficulty)

* It grabs immediately but without the kinetic energy of the heavy flywheel, you have to keep the RPM's very high to not stall.

Question: What options are out there these days to provide some clutch assistance?

I heard you can install a hydralic clutch assist system like in the 996 and 997 but that can't be cheap.

Anything else?
