possibly smoked the clutch...if you did it will smell something like burnt brakes almost smells like burnt plastic when i smoked mine. i did that the first week i had my car but the clutch was getting ready to go anyway i could tell that. i had to get mine replaced after that which sucked but she rides beautifully now!

I have a feeling OP went into panic mode on an incline or something, and probably overdid it on the throttle and slipped it too much.

Generally a burned clutch facing smells like burning paper.

this Is what I did kinda...didn't let off the clutch quick enough and ended up grabbing at 5000 rpm..cost 1100 to fix but only had to pay 550...lucked put... Next time you go up a hill when you get to forth try to give it a little more gas than normal and watch your tack when you do this...if it slips you'll know...that's how I found out mine was slipping. Went to pass someone going up a hill and it slipped...best of luck
