Clutch stiffness question fom the new guy..

Hello Everyone,

I am a new 05' GTO owner with a 6speed tranny and I love my new ride(been wanting one for years). I use a wheelchair full time(several back injuries from childhood) but do have good movement from my legs, well at least my right left leg is another story, it gets tired quickly when I drive cars that have stiffer clutches. I have no problem on four banger import clutches but the GTO is another story. Thank god the GTO uses a hydraulic clutch because I would never be able to drive a cable clutch setup. Found that out when I tried to test drive a 5.0 mustang a few years back, couldn't budge the pedal.

Anyway, is there a way to soften the clutch just a bit so I could drive the car for extended periods of time. Maybe there is an aftermarket master cylinder or slave that can help? Right now I'll only drive it when I know there isn't going to be any heavy traffic in my city and I can't run too many errands or I start having issues with my leg. Don't worry, I'm not getting rid of the car even if I can't find some solution to my problem. I love this car too much......I just want to drive it around more often.

Any advice would be appreciated...Thank you
