    It's something I'm going to be looking into - both aftermarket clutch and flywheel, and fixing the extremely long travel and high start height. It seems silly to me to have a low (gas) medium (brake) and high (clutch) pedal in the car. They should be level with one another. If the clutch just didn't start so high, the travel would be perfect. I am accustomed to driving my racecar (96 Neon with non-hydraulic clutch) but I've also owned a '02 Stratus Coupe, '00 Dakota, and a few other cars with manuals.

    I think part of the problem with shorter drivers is the length of the seat cushion. The center pushes forward more than the edges. If your knees aren't beyond the cushion enough, it's harder to get your legs to a position where you can make the clutch travel comfortably.

    On a side note, the FSM is strangely designed. It's not as informative as the old manuals (and I have a lot of them!), and there's really important things that are left out, like the wiring diagrams.

    I also hate the clutch. I've driven many cars all manual transmission and they were all better ex. RX-8. Anybody have news on whether this can be adjusted or replaced? Its almost as if you tied a plastic tie on the clutch to not let it go so far up that would work. I wear size 12 shoes so I'm always touching the underside of the dash or having to move my foot when releasing the clutch to stop my foot from touching. Its very annoying, had the car for 1 month now and I still haven't got used to it.

    I agree with seat length. It is a pain using the clutch. Enough so that I don't enjoy the car so much. Oh well I've got payments for while.
