Car performance question?

So I am bringing this as a question because I am not sure if it is in my head or is real!

Do clutches and motors start to work a certain way for a specific driver? I guess it would be like a new pair of shoes if one person breaks them in there foot impression is formed to the boot and if someone else tries to wear them the don't fit right! I feel like my car is like this! When my wife drives it for a couple days and then I take it out it drives a little different! Now my wife is a great driver hell I taught her how to drive a manual so she is not driving it badly but her coordination might be different ie pedal to shifter. Just curious if this is in my head or is really happening it is a conundrum and I want to make sure I am not crazy!!!!!!

I think you are right. Clutches wear different depending on the driver therefore the clutch feel will be different. But being driven for a couple of days and it feeling different? IDK? Maybe you are just getting used to driving whatever other car you are driving and when you get back in the mustang it feels different BC you have gotten used to driving the other car.

Lol I am probably just a little crazy! And you are right I am just used to the other cars I am driving! I figured that was it, now I wonder if someone has ever pulled apart a clutch assembly and noticed a trend of wear produced by a particular driver! Ir is it just one if those who cares as long as it goes lol

I actually test drove about 10-15 '11-'14 5.0s a couple weeks ago and they all drove different, so they definitely wear different but I don't think that will happen in 3-4 days unless it's some serious driving lol.

That happens to me. Sometimes wheni dad drives it even for a day, it feels a little funny to me. And I don't have other cars I can drive.
