I think you'd be able to feel the clutch better with a cable setup. I think that would be better at the track. On the other hand, would the hydraulic clutch operate more consistantly? Hmmm

True, a lot of people say that. That the cable is more reliable. Is it really THAT inconsistent?

My personal preference is a mechanical clutch. But I think it all comes down to what you're looking for. My stang is a DD that I regularly see stop and go traffic. It's quite a bit more work with a mechanical clutch but it never bothers me.
A hydraulic will be far easier to function so I'd assume speed shifting would be faster maybe more consistent..?
But for me I'm stayin mechanical.

Slave cylinders live inside the bell generally and my ranger had one fail a couple months after being replaced.. Talking about the same cash to change the slave cylinder as to change the clutch.. F that.. On a stock height car I have changed the cable in the ground(no jack).

I adjust my cable (no firewall adjuster) off the fork with no jack
And yeah when a hydraulic setup starts pissin from the slave cylinder or anywhere else it's a pain!
