Brakes...or Clutch? Smoking!

So, every once and awhile after some brisk driving I get the smell of either brakes or clutch...well the other day I also noticed smoke!

It seemed like the smoke was coming from UNDER the car. It was also kind of windy that day so I couldn't pin point it.

Is the smell a normal thing? I'm pretty sure it still has the stock pads on it.

Could the clutch not be releasing all the way?

You should be able to tell the difference between a clutch and brake pad smell.

Just take a whiff close to each wheel.

(good thing there isn't asbestos in the pads!).
