OP. Im in a similar situation . I just put a new Centerforce dual friction clutch in my supercharged GT. I broke it in correctly for 500 miles as recommended. On the first full throttle attempt, it slipped and burned.
I have driven it several times since. It grabs well on full throttle shifts. But when you pull away from a light, if you slip it a bit under moderate load it will still smell slightly. Im hoping it will go away. But Im sure I hurt it when it slipped the first time at 7000 rpm.
Glad to hear yours is sounding like its still ok.
