Clutch Engagement

My 17 BRZ has about 70k kms on it now and it feels like the clutch engagement point has gotten a lot higher since the car had 7 kms on it.

Has anyone else noticed this on their vehicles? I read a couple of comments from earlier threads that the engagement point in these cars don't change over the course of the car's life. To me I am certain that the grab point has changed.

1. As your clutch wears down, there is physically more space between the pressure plate and friction material. This will increase pedal travel.

2. Check clutch fluid level, just for fun.

3. You can always adjust the clutch grab point whenever you want. http://www.ft86club.com/forums/showthread.php?t=8040

Do you REALLY think that a 0.00000000001 mm, is going to make any significant difference in the clutch travel distance?

@Ultramaroon says that is

I've owned five manual cars and on all of them, over time, the clutch pedal travel has increased while the grab point has gone higher. It might not be entirely because of the clutch disk getting worn out, but it contributes. What other explanation is there, other than more space between the disk and PP?

Yet you inject yourself into the thread and summon me.

Are you bored?

Guys, the clutch mechanism floats just like the pots in your brake calipers. It's a simpler version of the same mechanism. The engagement profile may change as the disk wears but, other than seasoning to taste, there's no reason to adjust the pedal throw.

That being said, I loathe the stock setup. I seasoned mine heavily.

Hell, don't argue with me . I believe what I do because ol @Ultramaroon told me so - so, go argue with him -

NO, I am NOT bored! I'm just hungry and it's almost nap time -
