The major problem with Subaru BRZ clutch is there is no built-in camber in the car. Different drivers adjust the camber according to themselves.

It provides the wheels a much better contact patch. Due to which the stability increases. But with no camber installed already in the car the drivers need to purchase the camber for their cars which is a very hectic and time-wasting job for a driver junkie.
