    my 2002 z28 did the same thing. it shifts fine at 4 and 5000 rpm but once i get up to 6k or so then it shuts me out of third and my pedal sticks to the floor or goes soft. check your clutch fluid and make sure it is clean. if not change it. that may help. may also want to look into either doing the drill mod or getting a higher performance mc. i ended up going with the tick mc that comes with a better flowing and heat protected fluid line so you dont have to do the drill mod. will be putting it in this weekend so hopefully all gets straightened out. hope this helps. good luck man

    Does it grind at all? If it does, you may have damaged synchros

    I went with a tick MC after I had the same problem and a new stock master cylinder didnt fix my issues.
