Stinky Clutch?

I don't know if this is just because the clutch is so new - but anytime I do any type of spirited driving, the cabin is filled with a burning scent. I can understand if I was dropping the clutch doing burnouts, but that is not the case, just some more aggressive shifting here and there in traffic. Anyone else have this issue/problem?

Also - My buddy who is a die hard Ricer (he has a sweet Turbo Supra& an Acura Integra) loves the GTO and said it is the first "American" car he was consider owning.

Technically not too much of it is American, but a damn nice Australian car
Anyways, I had the same thing when I bought mine, for the first couple of hundred miles anyways. I no longer get that, must be just breaking it in

The same thing happened to me. Give it a few hundred miles and it will go away.

Same here. Just smelled like something was burning. It went away after about 1000 miles or so.

Clutch drops will not result in a smelly clutch, slipping the clutch will.
