Default Clutch fade

Anybody ever experienced a sort of clutch pedal fade after doing a little spirited driving? What happens is Ill smash 1st-3rd and then later down the road maybe at a stop sign or something the pedal feels all fagged out, doesn't return all the way, lets out wicked early. It eventually comes back and is fine after that, but it seems to happen 3/4 times I get into it. Any help?

Yeah the drill mod and if that doesn't fix it. Then new clutch master most likely.

Wow, thanks a lot man! Great links! My clutch fluid does look pretty dirty, so I'm just gonna start with the simplest things first and work my way down until I solve the problem. Or I could just go out and buy a whole new slave and master cylinder assembly, do the drill mod while its still out of the car and then throw it in...... Ill have to look at prices for the assembly. I remember buying a sealed unit for my 93 that could just bolt in the car and was already bled and good to go. Well see.

I was thinking that too but I'm not an expert on clutches. There is a restrictor in one of the clutch lines which can be drilled out to open it up. If you search LS1tech it should be easy to find a write up.
