I found some solution for my problem, I was using a water pillow from the beginning, but stopped using it from this summer as the same was very hot. I have again started using it from today where my thigh support is improved a bit and there is a bit difference in strain. I also need to adjust the seat to bit close to the steering as I pulled it completely back these days. Still I feel clutch is bit hard need to go to MASS to check it

Bro in my case there is no personal car for me , the car which is free without a trip or not gone for rent is my car for the day,so if i am used of a pillow like accessory to drive a car then what will be my situation?
so i suggest , once the clutch is worn out and you change your clutch to a soft new one do get rid of the pillow and get used to the original.
Sir, I know you use this water pillow and even i was thinking of request you to get me one [I tried here after you recommended it for thigh support]. But after seeing alex's post, you tell me now should i use or not this pillow for thigh support in my sparky [only in long drives]

All my don't-enjoy-driving friends sit closer to the steering than I do. And all of them taller than me. You know me, 'tall guy' (6 ft minus 9 inches).
I feel relaxed when I am far from the steering. I sit low, I mean adjust the seat height to lowest position, so that I can reach the pedals comfortably.
I too sit at middle distance [not too close nor not too far]. I always feel am driving relaxly. I hate to see some people sit on steering well and drive. As JohnyBoy mentioned I don't feel the pleasure of driving if i sit close.

. May be it has to do with the pedals height. In between i forgot to mention, i wear eight no. footwear.
I keep both my heals on floor. My right foot will be between accelerator and break and keep alternating between both. Left heal is for clutch. in b2b traffic i place the leg on clutch and depending upon situation i use the clutch other wise i will not even though the leg is on clutch.
Yes, this pains a lot and i am able to manage since b2b is not much here in Chennai apart from some specific times and most of the time I know the places where normally traffic will be and avoid it by going in thru some other route where no traffic or less traffic. In long traffic or where roads are clear I try to keep my left leg completely off from clutch and keep it on floor and if necessary use it on clutch.

checked the clutch issue with them and they have told clutch is fine and normal, but they said quite a few Ritz owners complained the same. They told me to try place a wooden piece under the mat beside the clutch as a dead pedal
Pls check with MASS guys and take next decision sir. Hope by now you should have done it my now and found the problem as well solution for that.
