Default Clutch issue?

I have a 310whp 2.5L hybrid with a Exedy stage 1 clutch in it. It has about 25k miles on the motor/clutch and has never shown any problems until today.

This morning on the way to work, I was cruising at about 3.5k RPM in 4th. When I pushed the clutch in to shift to 5th, the pedal was very light during the first part of travel, then firmed up near the end, but the engagement point felt very short - almost like an on/off switch.

After cruising in 5th for a bit, i tried the clutch again, and it felt totally normal when I pushed it in/out. I popped it back into 4th and drove for 30 seconds or so, and again it felt spongey when I shifted back into 5th.

I got off the interstate, and it felt normal again, until I had to accelerate quickly in 2nd gear - the same thing happened when I changed to 3rd gear.

I can easily reproduce the problem during hard acceleration in any gear, but if I'm driving normally, the clutch pedal feels 100% normal. It still accelerates very well, and I don't smell the clutch at all, so I don't think it's slipping.


Any ideas? Slave cylinder maybe?

Just an update for future searches or if anyone is interested...

I took the car to a shop and they determined that the pilot bearing was getting hung up on the input shaft of the transmission. They re-polished the shaft and put a new pilot bearing and clutch kit in it and all is good now.
