That is exactly what I thought happened as I ran over a bag and the smell was exactly like a bag burning but it lasted too long I thought ( a couple weeks off and on). I looked but not directly under the frame and did not see anything but you can't see much from above. If it is the clutch then clutches are much more sensitive than so I drove 30 years ago. I do too much stop and go driving but the car should not act up if all is right. I launch at about 1,000 to 1,200 rpm from a stop. I have not smelled it lately so maybe all is good
