Everyone is obviously excited about the new 6 speed in the STi, but I was wondering if anything has been done about the clutch. I am not that impressed with the clutch in my '02 WRX. I have driven many MT cars without problems and never ride the clutch, but occationally after a spirited ride with a lot of shifting I can smell the faint odor of cooked clutch. I don't think it would stand up to the additional power of the STi, especially with some hard launches. Does the STi have an up-rated semi-race clutch?
