Clutch and travel of 427

Hello all.....have owned every generation except C1, and it's always been a manual. Just bought a new 2013 427, and am wondering if anyone has any any trouble with clutch on car. I also currently own a 66 & 68 427, and I obviously won't compare those....but this clutch is so soft, and has a minimal travel, it even has a softer feel than my 6-speed Chevy Cruze.....I hope there isn't something wrong with it (only has 22 miles).....hard to admit this, but I have stalled twice! Not thrilled with feel of clutch, any one who can give me some insight?

What you describe is nothing like I have on my 427. I also just took the Ron Fellows course and drove at least 10 different 2014 vetted. All the same as my 427
My clutch actually has a lot of travel. Very easy and predictable. Most vettes of your year should be able to just let the clutch out and it will roll forward with out stalling. Suggest you get it to a dealer to be inspected.
