I don't know if this applies or if is an old days rant. My 93 SHO had a hydraulic clutch said to be self adjusting. You could "adjust" it by pulling up on the pedal with the arch of your foor. You would hear a click and that was the adjustment. Otherwise I know it can be difficult to correctly bleed a clutch.

My clutch seems to not release smoothly starting out in first gear. While releasing the clutch there's just a certain part where it feels like it jumps into gear beyond my control so instead of it being smooth it kind of jerks.

Mine leaves out kinda high but starts to grab on a flat surface around half way. I like how little effort it takes to push it in. I drove my mustang the other day and then got in the focus and about slammed the pedal though the floor:D

Yeah i just wish it was smoother. Haha i find that if I rev the gas higher and ease into the clutch it's more smooth but I look and sound like an idiot.
