Thanks Everyone

A big thank you to Koji_Online, syelenik, ducks and normancw.
Hate a clutch that engages high.
Will have to take my spanners when I pick up my BRZ

I'll be looking into whether this affects the clutch's disengaging/engaging .. I'm still fairly concerned :/

Am I missing something? What gear indicator display?

You can set the display to show what gear you're in when the clutch pedal is in the released position. Directions are in the manual.

Killing the actual clutch :[

Anyways, talked with a friend of mine who works in toyota services - he's also a car nut and only got good results.
This adjustment doesn't affect the actual engaging and disengaging of clutch.

Excited to do this on my car, I never was a fan of how high the clutch is!

by changing the length of the rod, the travel of the clutch pedal is being reduced, thus going out of specification. Wouldnt there be the posibility of the clutch not fully disengaging when the clutch pedal is depress?
Or as the clutch disc wears out, the travel needed to disengage the clutch might be larger making the issue even worse?
Just thinking that there is a specification for clutch pedal travel for a reason...

Thanks for the idea. With a "little help from a friend" I was able to adjust the clutch to a much lower point. This has to help the life of the clutch because before I felt I was dragging on it too much out of 1st and 2nd.

As for height wise I had the clutch almost engaging fully to the floor, but I backed it off a half turn. I now have a small amount of space there. Another way to describe it is that the clutch pedal is parralel to the brake now if not slightly lower. Fantastic difference in control! Thanks again.

YES! Thanks for this. Stock clutch lets out so high it feels like the clutch is almost completely burnt out! Personally for me, this way I can use less clutch and it'll last longer and shift smoother and more comfortably

Fantastic guide! Thanks for posting it and thanks for the pictures. I will adjust mine this weekend. It is definitely needed. Now I need to go find that gear indicator setting...

THIS. I just adjusted mine a few times. It's absolutely perfect when it sits verrrrrry slightly below brake pedal. Like 1mm below. It's amazing how much the feel changes with even the tiniest change. If you set it barely below the brake, the cruise control will still kick in easily with no problem.
