So yesterday I was driving home (2 lane highway, 55mph, sport mode) and I slowed down because the car in front of me was turning. I dropped down into second gear. I decided to accelerate quickly. I gave it a lot of gas as I was slowly letting the clutch out. The car started accelerating. As I got to the top of the clutch, the pedal came away from my foot for a second, but the car continued to accelerate. Then the clutch released. I shifted into 3rd, no problem. But I smelled what i assume was burning clutch (This is my first manual car) for about a mile or so. What happened?
