Yeah it takes some getting used to. I've had mine for about two weeks and even now that I'm used to it, it's still weird.
It has so much travel but only a little bit right at the end is when the clutch engages/disengages. Kind of hard when you're on a hill and you figure the pedal is out far enough to hold the car and then you start rolling backwards. Makes me feel like a noob.
I'm with all of you about the clutch thing. It's weird, and takes some gettin gused to. I switch between the XB, and my beater, a 1990 pickup, which is also a stick. I get used to the XB clutch, and look like a fool when I drive the pickup, and vice versa. It's a never ending cycle!!!
to everything ya'll are saying. Luckily, for me, I probably haven't died out in about a month or so. It sure was hard as hell getting used to. Not only have I had prior Manual cars before but I ride my R6 pretty often as well. So you'd think driving a car with this type of clutch would be no problem...but not such with these xb2's. Is there a way to adjust them at all?

there probably is a trd heavy duty clutch avaliable since it is the same engine/transmission as the tC.
but clutches change from vehicle to vehicle. driving my bro's isuzu rodeo, the clutch has an acre of travel, but it disengages and reingauges right at the top of the pedal travel, literaly, like it doesn't grab until your foot is almost off the clutch pedal.
