Mostly same. I think for me it's because the only manual car I've ever driven is my BRZ, so that's my frame of reference.

I do think the clutch feels even less sensitive since doing the TOB/fork replacement, though.

When I was working my old job 5 years ago and told my coworkers I was getting a BRZ, one of them kept telling me it was a bad idea because his wife has a BRZ and the clutch is the worst in any car he's ever driven, and he insisted I would have a bad time.

Still waiting for that magical bad time

Bought these for my buddy that helped me work on my house. GPS, 20 mile walkie range, text, weather, camera, and you can ping the other unit and see it’s position on your map.

Funny, I can't remember ever having a problem with a clutch on a vehicle after, at most, a stall or two. They are all a little different.

Rules are rules and that's not permitted.
Also clutch is fine.
Plus work and parts and all that.


At least there's no crappy center arm rest to try to tear out.
