Car that doesn't stall

So hear is something new and strange.
My stang doesn't stall. If I am at a complete stop and I put it in first, let off the clutch, and give it no gas, then the car just creeps forward as if it were an automatic. It isn't revving or anything. RPMs are still low. I have to keep my foot on the brake in order to make it stall. What could be causing it?

Very unagressive clutch?

Someone installed a clutch and fake shifter in an automatic? I dunno man, thats weird and pretty cool at the same time. Never have to worry about stalling in traffic.

What do you idle at?

Maybe have a high idle which is keeping it from bogging down enough to stall?

Got a friend that races a viper at a track in Louisiana. His car does that, but he does have a massive amount of torque. Pretty sure your clutch is slipping.

Must be a slipping clutch. It has over 30000 miles on it. I don't really know how long a clutch should last.

Depends on how hard you drive it, and how often you just dump the clutch, our black mustang has 214,000 and still has stock clutch, my mom has been driving it because she blew up her Taurus, and the clutch was fine before she drove it, she's had it 3-4 months and its needing a clutch, perfect excuse for a racing clutch, it'll have one when she's done with it

I am having a hard time deciding if the clutch is actually slipping. I haven't driven my car for two years until now so its hard to compare what it used to feel like to what it feels like now. What is the best way to tell? Is it easier to just look at the clutch?

throw a racing clutch in it, I heard those don't slip.(or barely slip). There's one in the wrecked GT i bought, it's so stiff though. My cousin said it's suppose to be like that.
