    When I voted, I mistakenly picked Have you experienced the clutch pedal sticking to the floor while shifting about 6,500 RPM's? because the item before it said "partially sticking". When in fact, the clutch pedal on my Boss did stick to the floor while shifting above 6500 RPMs, not partially. Perhaps, you just wanted to know if the pedal stuck to the floor above and/or below 6500 RPMs.

    Regarding the other stuff..
