2005 GT clutch question

Is there a way to make the clutch "shorter"? I'm not certain but I'm pretty sure that the original owner put in some kind of 'short throw' shifter. Granted this is the only S197 GT I've ever driven but the shifter is sooooo much shorter/closer than anything I've ever driven before so I think it's some kind of upgrade.

My question is whether there's a way to make the actual clutch pedal depression shorter as well? Right now I have to depress the clutch X inches. Is there a way to make it such that I only have to depress the clutch X - 1 or 2" instead?

Thx

There is no adjustment on a hydraulic clutch.

Tie wrap a chunk of 4x4 to the pedal.

if you look under the pedal itself, you might be able to fabricate something to attach to the arm the depresses the hydraulic part.

there is a metal arm that pushed a button into a cylinder (similar looking to our door lock pin). If you could make something that makes the pin push in sooner I'm sure you could do that...

Or that is just a sensor and would do nothing

Or it could make it horribly dangerous.
