If your on your stock 2000 clutch I would upgrade before puting any more HP to it.

Very common problem. People have tried changing fluid,,changing clutch master cylinder and other GM clutches and the problem returns. GM claims the pressure plates are not properly installed and torqued. Some people have tried the LS6 clutch as well as the LS7 clutch but the problem seems to return.

The only thing that seems to work is replacing the pressure plate and clutch disc and flywheel. The preferred clutch seems to be the Textralia. My 02 Z06 has 20,000 and the clutch started sticking down when I run it hard.

I never get on car until oil temps are at last over 140 and i have driven car for a while. Probably worse once car gets warm. I had shifting issues when I had the car @ Road America last year after running the car for a few laps.

New one on me but not a bad idea and inexpensive.
