So my clutch smells like it's burning when the car is stopped. Doesn't matter if I'm in neutral or in gear with the clutch pedal depressed. No odd behavior while driving, nor is there any smell (even with the vents open) while driving. I don't race or drive hard, it's just a daily driver. I've launched it from a stop maybe 5-6 times total, but not recently, and never smoked it out.

It's a CCI 2200 clutch and flywheel, TSK3 kit, Stage 2 car. 27K miles on the clutch

Do I need to adjust the clutch? Is the clutch dying already?
