Strange clutch/ gear box??

My Sti type-r v-ltd my99 has developed a problem, in so much that during normal (gentle) motoring the clutch operates faultlessly but after even just a few minutes hard driving the clutch has a very gritty feel to it with a noise to match, but everthing goes back to operating and sounding normal within a few minutes of normal motoring again ?? has any one got any ideas what this may be. Thanks in advance.

Sure its clutch? Or are you driving hard with DCCD not in rear bias.

Bob, providing DCCD dial is functioning ok, rear bias is selected but may try dialing in different settings to see if it affects the problem in any way.
Will post to update on progress.
Cheers M8.
