    i took 2018 gt350 to the track, and when i shift from 3rd to 4th, the clutch pedal stayed down and won't go up in at least 1 sec. i thought i was doing money shift and try to hit the clutch and i didn't find it.. so i have to press the clutch for 1 sec until i let it go for the rest of track day. it only happens on track not during normal driving.

    That’s not good. Have you installed the Steeda clutch pedal spring?

    It’s heavier but it’s a single linear vs two separate springs. On the Boss 302’s and S197 5.0’s the fix was to remove the spring but I don’t recommend that on a GT350.

    I don’t know if that will solve your problem and it seems that I recall someone else removing the spring (for other reasons) and there was too much slop in the travel. Give it a try if you want just be careful not to break the plastic piece that is part of the assembly. I do not believe that piece is available without purchasing a whole pedal assembly.
