I was told that sandpaper and... break cleaner would do the trick..

Thing is. I switched out the master like you said (thanks for the suggestion on which master to get). And it feels a little better now. But when i first got clutch the engagement was right off the floor... now its right at the top of my pedal.. Could this be a bad pressure plate?

(its still slipping)

Once again guys, really appreciate your help.

If the disc got glazed, it's glazed, and there is no way to fix it without removing it.

Okay. But once its removed will it be fixable? Or am i in line for a new clutch?..

Im just taking it to a new shop. Ill have the clutch deglazed.. and the throwout bearing relubed.

I fixed a shuddering/slipping/glazed cluch in the mustang using emery cloth on the flywheel surface, and LIGHTLY on the clutch disc surface

Granted, it only took me 15 minutes to pull the trans in the car, it was worth the gamble, and it paid off

If I went through the trouble on an RSX, I would have the flywheel resurfaced and a new clutch put in if you are having bad slipping issues

Im still confused as to what made my shift point go from Super low off the floor to super high (which it still is) Is that normal for new clutches?.

^ could either be a new clutch or the master cylinder (clutch pedal adjustment)

I put the new clutch in, and it used to engage off the floor. And then i felt it get higher and higher as the das went by. Then one day it decided it was going to start engaging at the top... Even after i replaced my Master it still engages high.. could that just be the new pressure plate getting worn in?

ah nvm i was thinking the opposite. ya, that's the clutch wearing. as a clutch gets older the engagement point tends to raise very slowly. since it's glazed/worn, its engagement point rised very high

you can try adjusting the cmc clutch pedal adjustment (back of the clutch pedal) to see if that will lower your clutch pedal engagement and, maybe, help your slipping some. but if it's truly glazed it may not help

Thank you so much for the input!! im going to try that tomorrow.. God bless you all for dealing with my ignorance :-D. Im going to get the old clutch, scotchbrite it.. and sell it on ebay, maybe someone else will have luck with it..

Plan is to get a new clutch/pressure plate. Im still sticking with clutchmasters cause the grab i had before everything went to shit.. was amazing.. Im just hoping i have no more problems..

Ill keep you guys posted!

When i get the new one in.. No vtech untill 1kmiles...

One more question... My clutch engagement.. how exactly should i have my pedals adjusted.. (In detail please). Cause right now it engages wayyyy high..

Most of the thread should be towards the floor?.. When should my clutch engage? ... halfway?

The higher the pedal, the better. Find the procedure in Helms.
