I have had a manual Vantage for two years now. Love everything about the car- except the clutch- which feels more like a truck than a sports car. Starting up in heavy traffic (I live in Southern California- so there is always heavy traffic!) can be tiresome.
Has anyone improved their clutch in any way to lighten it up?

You would have to do some serious re-engineering of the pedal geometry to get a lighter feel. I don't know of anyone whom has taken the time and money required to do this. Unfortunately it's just a part of the car's personality.

The clutch on my '09 is.. actually fantastic. Very light, easy to modulate and engage either when putt-putting around town, or testing 0-100 times.. I know AM reworked the flywheel for '09, which is probably in play.. probably not much you can do for a pre-09 (which, means it's time to upgrade!).
