Anyone used a hammerstand?

Hey everyone,

Has anyone installed the clutch stop called the Hammerstand?

I am interested in how well it works.

Bavarian autosports has it on their catalog for $80.

Is it worth it?

*posted this in the 3 series also*


Thanx in advance.

David

No. $80.00 you say? My, that sounds, well, like a lot of money for a clutch stop don't you think? I made mine from a 0.65 bolt and a big rubber washer...works fine...YMMV

Interesting.

You haven't had any issues with your bolt setup?

Breaking?

Slipping?

It seems like a pretty solid piece.

I am worried I may slam down on the clutch and mess up the clutch pedal if I use some ordinary bolt.

Thanx for the reply though

quick shifting isn't accomplished by slamming into the clutchstop with that kind of force

Not sure what you mean. I am saying that some people while racing slam their clutch pedal down pretty hard. I wasn't making a correlation between how hard you slam your foot down and shifting speed.

Are you a vendor?

If so, have you had any issues with customer returns on these UUC stops?

It looks like a very simple piece.

Thanx,
David

I'm just saying it makes no sense to slam the pedal down that hard, just like it makes no sense to continue pulling back on the shifter so hard that the knob comes off

in otherwords, buy what you want but it seems like a waste of money in my book, so no I've never used nor do I see the need to use one, I probably drag launch/shift a BMW more than most owners

I made my clutch stop from parts available at home depot for less than $4.00. I believe the pedal arm is made from plastic, so you should worry about that more than the stop
