seriously, do you guys not read? he did not disable the switch. he simply moved it forward (toward the driver) so that he wouldn't have to press so far down to start the car. he says pressing down normally, so i guess it's still going the full distance to not engage the clutch, just not more than you have to to start the car. but if he moved it up farther than that, then i would agree with everyone else. it's basically the same as disabling it.
but OP, that switch has nothing to do with driving itself. however, because you adjusted the clutch stop, that's probably what's helping you. i never push the clutch all the way down to the clutch stop except to turn on the car.
