Jason was going to look into it today. No doubt they will figure it out! I thought I'd ask just to see if you guys knew any secrets. I thought I read, or maybe in a discussion with Peter, something about switching the slave cylinder pin for the stock one?

Is that typical of the UUC kit? Any way to make it better?
Doesn't sound like they installed the 850 csi slave cylinder with the kit. That IMHO is essential and results in a very high engagement point and a very light clutch, making for very quick shifts.

Lol, sorry, traveled back to NYC yesterday.

Don't know why the clutch would have such a low enggagement point then.
