I believe that our cars have a clutch delay, that way when a soccer mom drives them and dumps the clutch the car wont stall. My clutch is perfect, it doesn't slip under the hardest abuse however! I have heard that there is a hydralic clutch dealy on the e36s that stops the clutch from engaging hard and with a pop. To prove my point rev the engine up like you are going to launch a quarter mile, or do a power burn-out. In every other vehicle I have ever driven I can bring the RPMS up to about 3,500 - 4,000, and drop/finesse the clutch just right and lite both tires up. However I can't get this car to do it. Any ideas?

If this does indeed bother you I would suggest getting a cluth stop. I believe uucmotorwerks.com, not only sells clutch stops but explains the phenominon and the clutch stop will remedy the issue. However, I have a 95 325is, and when I launch it I do not have any problems.

Alright... I did find a couple of write ups and it turns out that there is a restrictor valve built into the hydralic line for the clutch which slows down the fluid and therefor slows down how fast the clutch will fully engage. It is supposed to be a little spotty on who has it and who doesn't.

Also where the hell did the clutch stop thing come into play? The clutch will not engage fast enough, my spacing off the floor is perfect. Thank you anyways toast, also you are supposed to be able to make those for only a couple of bucks.

I am going to remove the valve in the next week or two and let you all know how it goes.
