Looking to buy an RX8

As my first manual car to own personally I'd like to get an RX8. I've been looking into this car for months now and I know that I'm going to be getting one fairly soon.

I've only driven 2 different manual cars before, but both of them I've driven a lot, (a couple months now).

Since I don't know much about manual cars in technical terms, my question might be a bit hard to understand, but you may get my point.

I was wondering, between the 2 manual cars I've driven (2004 Nissan 350Z and 2014 Jeep Wrangler) which clutch is more like the RX8?

I believe both are stock as a reference. The 350Z feels a bit harder to drive, the Jeep I can say is much easier. The clutches are different in a way that the Jeep has a way more clear bite point, and is much easier to take off in by a substantial amount.

I know a lot of people may not be able to answer my question, but if you've driven both (or probably any new 2012 - 2015 car that is manual probably has the same clutch / similar as the Jeep) which the RX8 is more like?

I would say that the RX-8 is on the harder side of Manuals.
