All the older cars I've driven that are manuals the clutch was a metal, clanky, squeeky thing that took all your strength to press. If it wasn't pressed to the floor, you grinded the gears.

Test driving the challenger the clutch was light as a feather. In fact you didn't really have to push it in just rest your foot on it and the gears would change.

What did they do to the clutch to make it so buttery? It is power assited or something?

Progress - the old days of mechanical linkage...goodbye and so long.:wave:

They days of having tendonitus and blown out knees are going to be a thing of history - I don't miss having those old stiff clutch pedals.

It is a hydraulilc mechanism as toofart said, but did you also know that the clutch itself has double disc's? It's something borrowed from drag racing.
