Yeah, it is more annoying than anything else. It's still perfectly functional, and if that is the problem, I'm less concerned that it's an omen of imminent failure.

Sounds good ... but keep in mind my car was a 1995 NSX and way out of warranty ... the work was done in 2014 or maybe 2013 and I paid for the original clutch to be replaced but once they did the work it was warrantied ... in other words I paid for the clutch but once they did the work the work itself was warranted for 12 months if I remember correctly whatever was wrong was covered under the warranty

Yeah, I was misunderstanding the warranty thing, you guys were saying the work is warranteed (sp?). I get what you're saying now. I'm not sure what route I'll take yet.

You might have some deposits of foreign material that need to be burned off too.

Actually, I think this may have been the issue. A few days ago I did an intentional controlled clutch burn (was painful, felt very wrong to be doing that). But since I did it, I haven't felt the symptoms again. Time will tell, I guess.

It hasn't been long enough that I don't think about it when launching anymore, but I haven't felt the symptoms.

When I forget about it then I'll know it's fixed.
