I heard somewher that if you burn a kevlar clutch it may glaze over and slip some then grip again when you wear the glaze off.

Clutch slave cyl may have been stuck. Clutch arm could have also been caught or stuck. A few things it could have been. Be glad it worked itself out for now.

Yeah really, normally those things only get worse and replacing a clutch isn't fun. It's not cheap either.

I have a Kevlar backed Master Clutch installed earlier this year.
I just finished the last autocross race for this season after doing a total of 6 with this new clutch.
On my way home I noticed it slip a little when I shifted hard into 2nd getting on the highway.
I'm sure I just glazed the clutch as stated in the above posts, because now it's working fine.

PS: I got 1st in STU for the last race and 2nd for the season
