Question not so stock transmission issues

so i noticed something rather interesting the other day when i was gettin on the throttle with the transmission...
i took off from first pretty quick (no tire spin, was wet)
shifted from first to second no problem around 6500 rpm's with a bit of wheel spin
got up to about the same in second (6500)
went to shift from second to third and had the clutch mashed to the floor and it was grinding to get into third so i forced it
let out from the clutch then car started acceleration by itself
punched the clutch again and it immediatly revved to limiter
i then press the throttle and it came down from a pinned rev...

what the hell is going on...ill post internals of the tranny when the guy i bought it off of answers me back
i know it has a LSD, fidanza flywheel, stage ? clutch, and 4:06 final in it
i dont know brands but it isnt stock the second previous owner had it on a turbo set up so im guessing the clutch is the culprit here, and i really dont want to replace it this soon. i just got the trans put in, in july, so yea let me know thanks dudes
