Almost forgot... I also have a pair of Viking double adjustable rear shocks going in, and we are going to try out a hillbilly clutch slipper... Hate to waste the new-ish clutch to swap in a slipper before trying everything.  Besides... if the hillbilly slipper eats my disk, at least I have and excuse at that point!

What's a hillbilly slipper?

I'd rather be a fool who is loyal to his friends than a POS that jumps ship to save face. We were wrong in the end, but nobody can ever call us disloyal. I can live with that.

Well... something I saw on YB and then googled... Basically you head on down to home Depot and pick yourself up a hydraulic screen door closer and some other cheap hardware totaling about $20, and attach one end to the clutch pedal, and the other to the back of the dash.  The cylinder will slow the clutch release, and is adjustable in both its delay time(adjust-ability in tension), and distance(adjustable bracket)

Don't know yet how it will work for me, but it has intrigued me and the shop enough to give it a shot.

At this point, I'll take a fail and a learning experience!

There is no doubt that Grant's hillbilly clutch works well for him.  He drives his RX7 to the track and runs low 10's or high 9's with a toploader.  He is a talented ingenious guy who hand builds lots of his race parts.
