Default Heavy Clutch?

so, i purchased an 06 wrx. now, never driving a subaru before.. i was wondering how the stock clutch feels. im leaning towards the clutch on my car being a staged clutch considering its like a damn boulder and grabs literally right off the floor...

maybe i'm just used to how my other cars clutches are , but ive tried looking it up and have gotten no answers.

so, im here.

Stock is like a leg press machine compared to all the other stock hydro clutches I've driven.

06 clutches seem to be a bit heavier than 07 clutches for some reason.

I'm thinking the same. I've driven other cars with hd clutches and that's what I'm comparing it to.

I've got an Exedy stg1 in my RS and it's light as a feather... my Forester clutch was heavier, that is until I installed another Exedy in it..

I wouldn't bank on the heavy pedal being a heavy clutch..... jus sayin..

grabbing nice and early however does spell HD clutch...

Maybe a view from the bottom vent, you might be able to see color, indicating aftermarket..

Is your RS a turbo model? All the N/A clutches I've driven in subies have been light, all the turbo clutches are leg press machines.

Is there anyway to check to see if your clutch is aftermarket? I've looked thru the vent to no avail. It started slipping and I need to replace it.

Why do you care if you're replacing it. Put in the proper clutch for your power level.
