That would depend on your engine, your pipe and your driving style and setup. Set it on the track but from my general observations, 1 mm is already the max. You may want to go less than that. Track traction also dictates if you want agressive clutch engagement or smooth type engagement.

What exactly do you mean by "more punch" with the clutch mod? IS it a big difference from stock? Thanks, I really appreciate you sorting out my lack of understanding.
I asked the owner of my lhs about this question and he told me its not neccessary unless you feel your engine is not as fast. If you feel your engine is fine and you are getting the power you need then dont do the mod. My engine is still new so I have plenty of power This guy always races 1/8th scale and hes always on the podium in the A main, so I know what he's talking about. So before you go ahead and modify it consider if you really need to have it done. IMHO. Have fun with the car first and then see what else need to be done.

I think you have your "laws" mixed up - Murphy says: "if it ain't broke, it soon will be"

Yeah, and the chances of braking increase in linear proportion to the cost of the element involved

I knew that question would be asked. Its for the Integy setup board. I need it to tighten the wheel nut in order for the guage to fit tightly. Do you know the size?

My fingers can fit to hold the wheel nut while I tighten it. So does anyone know the size?
