that is the first it time that i hear of the "slef adjsting clutch" on the m-coupe. do you mean an "adjustable" clutch? viper GTS and the mclearn F1, F-50, all have the adjustable clutch. this mean that one could adjust the distance between you clutch peddle and the brake. this will allow max confort for different size people. But if you are not talking about this, please keep us posted!!!!

In the "olden days" clutch actuation was by mechanical linkage which tended to wear and could not compensate for clutch plate wear. Therefore adjustments had to be made to take up the slack. Now-a-days a hydraulic system actuates the clutch and by its nature needs no adjustment. Hence the marketing boys say it is "self adjusting". Neat huh?
