It is not recommended to use a racing clutch on a road going car. They rattle when disengaged and holding the car on the clutch is problematic.
Essential that this works properly, if not the clutch may not disengage entirely when the pedal is pressed. They're prone to leaking. When changing ensure that the pushrod is cable tied all the way back into the cylinder and then bleed the system. See video here to show a working slave : https://youtu.be/N-2SHUpuliY
