Clutch Question

Some of the posts from owners said that the clutch seems to be either in or out. What I mean is that is is either engaged or disengaged and there was no room for slippage. Some have said they stalled it frequently. Some have complained of a burning smell from slipping the clutch. Is this true? For those who have replaced their clutch did this issue go away and if it did what clutch did you get? Centerline or something else? I've had no problem with my 4th Gen Camaro/Trans Am. I can ease it in or out with no problem. Especially in stop and go traffic.

I had the same problem stalled it out leaving the dealers
lot after delivery.
After about 1200 miles it seems fine now
Give it a little more time

Not much stalling (and i haven't driven a stick in years) but if you let if slip for any period of times you will smell the clutch burning.

Yeah, I stalled mine a few times after I first brought it home, but I hadn't driven a stick for 15years. The clutch does grab with the pedal barely released but you do get used to it ( at least I did after a while). Just now at 1640 miles and so far no burning smell.

I have stalled mine now and again. Just cause tunes are to loud and can't hear the motor. Any time you slide the clutch you will probably smell it. Sucks seem like sliding the clutch is the best way to get it it to 60' at the strip.
