Never had that condition occur.

You mention red lining...assume that you notice this ie on a 1-2 upshift vs off the line?

I haven't noticed the problem when playing (
) but I do notice then when the car is cold, the clutch seems to start grabbing very close to the floor. As it warms up, it seems to move up higher in the pedal range (to something I would consider normal).
I don't mind it because it returns to "normal" after the car has run a few minutes but maybe it's a problem???

I found launching the car is tough because my clutch releases at different places all the time, I though it was just me but many C5's have this problem.

For the past three weeks evertime I light the car up my clutch pedal starts grabbing right off the floor (no play).
Under regular driving conditions all is fine.
This happens only when I am red lining.
1fast drove my car and the sme happened to him.
Should I tell them you stalled it at the light 1fast? Too late.

Anyone else having clutch problems.

Have you checked the clutch fluid level?

Tom,

Go to the online service manual for 2001 Corvette and type in Clutch in the search area. I think you will find the problem there. They have several causes listed.
