Anybody have first hand experience on the performance of Exedy, since will need to handle the 400hp for years reliably? Clutch feel, take up, etc? Good that the CSC issue is resolved.

I did have the chance to test drive 2019 and 2020 370Z a while back at the dealer. I believe these two models had the updated Exedy clutch.

Honestly, the friction point was quite high and the clutch pedal was rather limp. I hope it's nothing like that.

Yep I don’t like high take up points, hard to modulate. I wonder if it’s a diff version of Exedy on the new Z, more robust to handle the power.

Shouldn't be an issue. All of that stuff will be put in the hands of real world test mule engineers most likely. As you see these cars out and about, that will be one of the things I am sure they will be find tuning. It's not an unsprung puck clutch, so it shouldn't be an issue. Nissan is ordering enough of them to customize every aspect anyway. So it will feel the way they desire. Anything with springs and a complete disk (non-puck style) will be fine. What you want to be asking is....how much TQ will the stock clutch be rated for? HA. My guess would be about 500 ftlbs max.
