Clutch pedal is starting to get hard and sticking to the floor...
Occasionally clutch pedal is a bit lower to the floor and won't fully disengage the clutch unless I just lift it with my foot...
I had the same symptoms. You have a master cylinder that is going bad. Had mine diagnosed and replaced under warranty. The problem went away.

If the OP's clutch is not slipping, then it is not worn out.

Oh I see, there's a little hydraulic cylinder there under the pedal. Thanks a bunch, I'll take a look at getting a replacement.

Before you go through the trouble of condemning the clutch, does it slip at all? If the only thing you’re going by is a slightly harder pedal and the pedal sticking occasionally I’d change the fluid first.
Changed fluid today . Went on a mission to find some decent dots fluid. Only think I could find with a good boiling point was bosch dot 3 4 5.1. It was part of the recommended brake fluid list

Good advise the pedal isn't as stiff as if was but ill give it a few days

I went with Excedy Mach 500 with no issues at all. McLeod RST was nothing but problems for me.
I also got a lightened billet steel flywheel, I recommend that.
Lol mine wont go into gears after only 4 times on drag strips. Officially toasted.
And after what I read about Exedy. I’m thinking of getting one next week prb.

But does the Mcleod steel flywheel work with it?

I have no idea.

I am surprised there are not more complaints on here on the RST clutch. I am sure many are driving them hard and finding same issues.
