this sounds like my car as well. I have what i was told is the stock clutch (but it sure feels heavy). The car only has 50K miles on it. Anything under 6K RPM's and it is fine. But if I autocross the car or rev it out past 6700ish RPM's, the clutch pedal feels sticky, like it doesn't want to come back up as smoothly. I can't see it being the hydraulics since they are in no way affected by engine RPM's. I'm thinking that it is the throwout bearing not wanting to slide on the shaft. My clutch feel returns to normal after a couple minutes when everythign has a chance to cool down a bit.

but if the clutch is slipping in any way, then higher RPM will mean higher levels of heat. the heat would transfer into the fluid, wouldn't it?

My clutch is definately not slipping. Either way, heat couldn't be transfered well into the clutch fluid anyways, since the the heat would have to be transfered from the disk/plate through the diaphram spring to the throwout bearing to the throwout fork to the clutch slave cylinder. This isn't really going to happen. Any heat in the clutch fluid system is usually from the line running close to the turbo.
