Default 2 things: weird clutch and....tork dampers would be nice

1. anyone hear any word on tork dampers? everytime i gun and shift into 2nd at high rpm it feels like my motors gunna come bustin through the firewall onto my lap.

2. i've gotten used to it but i dont like the way the clutch sits...i wanna find some way to adjust it so it sits on the same level as the brake like most cars..that way i dont feel like im driving a freakin fork lift.


anyone agree or have any idea's?

I totaly agree with the clutch pedal. When I get into my tsx I feel like not even engaging the clutch because the throw is so much short then the xb. I would totally buy that prodcut and the tork damper

The clutch IMO isn't that bad, i've gotten use to it. I definetly agree on the torque damp tamper, I will definetly buy one when its available. Does anybody know for previous experience how bad vibration is with one installed?

I had one on my tC and really liked it. It did make the vehicle shake alittle more. Basically what it does is take the twisting of the motor and transfer the force into the car. Helps stop the motor from twisting. So the car is taking some of the shaking that the motor mounts usually absorb.
