A clutch stop should be adjustable so you can eliminate the dead travel but allow the clutch to fully engage/disengage.

So, no, a block of wood prolly wont work :)

^^+1^^ Youll need a carriage bolt and some lock nuts and some fender washers and some way to put it through the floor... just look up some diy's I wish I knew more but seein how my truck's clutch engages near the floor I've never bothered... lol

Who says a block of wood isn't adjustable?:D If there's not enough play shave a layer off your block, if too much play get a bigger block of wood.

that is true, the clutch pedal adjustable stop
 
it's true, they exist...keeps from over disengaging the clutch. I don't see them much anymore though.

Good for performance driving. Crazy city driving with steep hills? Not so much fun anymore. Especially if you are in the wet with an E30.

In everyday driving I like a good amount of travel.
