Day 6 of no car. Never been this long without driving in about 10 years at least. Lots of using Uber. What's nice about Uber is getting to ride in comfortable cars with plush leather seats. That part of it has been nice. Having a break from the FRS is sort of refreshing.

Of course the bad is I just got a call. Everything is apart and ready to go back together, but a hydraulic line from the master slave cylinder to the clutch got messed up and started leaking fluid.

They are trying to source a part but nobody has any idea what they need to send because they just sell kits and I guess the line has some sort of kink in it so they can't just cut it and refit it??? I dunno. Maybe I'll get it back next week?

(Edit: Doh, I'm not a FR-S / 86... wrong thread. )

Found the eyedropper tool for the BRZ and other stablemate. #nerd

TBH I'm not a big fan of the little Alfa. However, when ever I see a yellow BRZ I get a little tear over what might have been...


The BRZ I bought but never got to take delivery.

Oof. Got the car back today. The fuck with this new clutch? When I test drove a '17 BRZ, I thought the owner might have removed the clutch spring because it felt soooo different than my '13. Lo and behold, my new clutch feels just like the BRZ. Super light and grabby. I thought I read somewhere that they updated the clutch at some point, or maybe it is just because it is so new. Not sure, but I miss how the old one felt.

After 1 week without the car, it felt so strange to drive. I'm super paranoid about every noise and feel right now. I think my brain just adjusted to what normal cars are like and I have to re-adjust back to this rachet-ass experience.

Can't speak directly to what you're experiencing but new clutches will feel different. Go easy for 500 miles. After that it should be, for the most part, broken in. Clutch, flywheel, and pressure plate all have more texture (grip) when new so could seem grabby.

Good to hear. Right now I'm bucking around like a new driver. It also feels like the car is still "learning" after being unplugged. It feels like the first 25% of the peddle won't do anything, then I get all the fuel. All of that together is messing with my brain and left leg, and my overall confidence.

Have a read. I was curious as well (just to learn more about the system).

The old TOBs jammed up so gradually you never really noticed. When I got mine replaced all of a sudden the clutch was really light again. It is normal. There are things you can do to firm it up a bit but the light touch is the norm not the exception. @Ultramaroon

This is the real deal.

Ended up getting her 7.5k mile ToyotaCare checkup a little over the mark (my OCD still kicking in when I see the sticker on the windshield that says 15084 for the next one), and I'm still amazed I've come this far in this car, even after only having her for about 4 months. The majority of the mileage came from a sudden roadtrip to Florida and back (about 2,000 miles round-trip, if I include activities while I was down there), and a trip to PA and back to see my cousin. Everything else is work commute and sometimes trips up north to visit friends. Only thing that could make it better is probably a set of coilovers, but I'm only interested in smoothing out the ride on bumpy roads, not lowering or slamming of any kind. Still a good idea?

Otherwise, it's just been me and that 1TB iPod Classic I built with all the lossless SEB on it. Managed to leave for work early today, threw on some Pierce the Veil and hit that curvy, hilly road that I commute daily.
