Only just started to push the car a bit. It's got around 2000km on it, but when I shift around 5k, 5.5k rpm the clutch has a bunch of vibrations even though it's fully depressed. Is this normal? I thought everything was disengaged when the clutch was all the way down. Everything feels smooth below 4k rpm. Thanks.

Are these vibrations only felt in the clutch pedal? What is the magnitude of the vibration, what is shaking? Do you hear any noises while engaging and dis-engaging the clutch?

Only felt in the clutch pedal, nothing from the wheel or shifter. Magnitude of vibration is as if i was riding it on the friction point. I thought the first time it happened maybe i didn't fully depress the clutch, but the second time i intentionally ensured it was all the way down and held it there for a second longer than I had to before i got worried that I was burning up the clutch and clutched back in and eased it down.

You may be correct in that the clutch is not fully dis-engaging, there may be a compressible air bubble in the system that is not allowing the full travel of the slave cylinder.

So it sounds like no one else is really experiencing this so is it safe to assume it's not normal for clutch pedal vibration at higher rpm? I will check if the clutch is fully disengaging tonight.

Update: It doesn't seem to be clutch not disengaging. I put the car in gear from a standstill with clutch still fully depressed and revved it to 3k from a stop. With my foot still all the way on the clutch the car didn't move at all, so it doesn't seem to be on the friction point. The car doesn't push forward on rev matching either.

Has anyone else felt anything shifting at higher rpm that feels like vibration in the clutch pedal? There is no hint of it during normal driving or anything below 3k.
