Bad clutch?

How can you tell if you have a bad clutch?
I've been taking my mustang to the track and I'm having trouble putting it In 3rd gear when I race I pop clutch but even if I hold the clutch all the way down and it still grinds the gear but it only happens in high rpms when I'm driving normal it's okay

I'm sure it's the shifter bracket. Mine was the same way at high rpms. Changed mine out and I almost never grind into 3rd.

Stock bracket vs Barton bracket



This is the install. This one is the two post bracket which is the upgraded version. But pretty much works the same and install is kinda the same.

Bad clutch?

It's sloppy and during high revs it doesn't preform well.

Could've worn out the stock rubber bushing with all of the racing and hard shifting.
