What's up with my clutch?

Recommended Posts

I have an old Santro (Very nicely maintained by dad) and I am just learning to drive.

Yesterday I was practicing take-offs when I did something stupid, I literally lifted it in the 5th Gear up a slope!

I was happy to have done it until I smelled the burning of the clutch. I stalled the car and looked up the Internet for stuff and realized that I have rode the clutch a little too much.

Now, I have to say that's one hell of a clutch. It was tried by me today after cooling it off, father drove it again as well and there's no shipping.

The clutch works perfectly, except, everytime the car gets back home, there is this same smell! Although, much less in magnitude, it is still there!

TL;DR: The biting point is the same, there's no slipping (it won't climb a steep slope at low speed with full gas and the RPMs do go down), but the clutch still gives off a little of that burning smell everytime the car's driven, anywhere. (No, it didn't happen before.)

What is it? Anything to worry about?
