I have SOLD 17,500 of these and I bet you have never seen one of these. Right?

Crazy to think that after 9 years of selling these, we have sold over 17,500 in 38 countries! WoW!!! I bet you have never seen one and more than likely, your head will explode when I show it to you. What am I talking about? Great question.


There is a wing nut that when functioning at it best, is roughly a FIVE out TEN experience. This original nut, in theory, would allow the VW owner to adjust his clutch feel to get the right amount of pedal to disengage the clutch. But most of the time...........
