low clutch pedal

Im new to having a gto, but the clutch pedal feels soft, compared to my trans ams. especially shifting at 4000+rpms. Ive replaced leaky slave cylinder, replaced the master cylinder, vacuum bled, power bled and manually bled the clutch system. any ideas much appreciated

What clutch do you have in it? If it's the stock one they have a weak pressure plate and will cause hangups at higher RPM. Unlike fbodies the master cylinder is rarely needing replacement.

I have a stock clutch in it right now, just bought a spec stage 3 clutch from a friend of mine for cheap with flywheel pressure plate and all. Just haven't installed it due to my clutch issue I am having

Well changed out the clutch with spec stage 3 clutch, replaced master and slave cylinder, I can take off, and shift at high rpms, but the clutch pedal still feels soft, like 1-2,2-3 and then 3-4 the pedal feels like it wants to stay on the floor kinda slowly get up.

Did you measure for shimming? Did you install a remote bleeder (a lot more important than that master). Spec has an issue in my opinion with their tolerances. I had fits when I had a 3+. At any rate I would bleed the crap out of it.

If it's going forward the pressure plate is not disengaging. Bleeding may help although like I said I had all kinds of issues with a Spec 3+. I only got 18,000 trouble-filled miles like you described before I threw it away and put in a Monster 3. I didn't like that clutch for driving (harsh engagement, chatter) but at least it worked. Don't skip measurement. It's a crap shoot if you don't.

Yeah, i think this is my last summer with this clutch in it. Did you have any problems with the monster clutch? low pedal or shimming? or shifting?
