Default Odd problem Fluid on leg

Hey, i got a question and i hope you have an answer. When i "dump the clutch" or leave hard sometimes i feel HOT oil/clutch fluid (i believe) on my RIGHT FOOT. Any idea how or why? What should i look at?

I pictured an alternative lifestyle little person dressed in leather with a red ball gag fiercely humping his leg while he's driving

and the win goes to heater core they run into the passenger compartment over your pedals and might leak abit more when the water pump, is pumping harder

no just coolant....there shouldn't be anything flowing oil in the cabin...

unless one of the masters is leaking maybe that might seep in there somewhere, and smell like oil. I guess at least check teh levels adn see if any paint is damaged in that area of the firewall under the booster.

Taste it. If it's sweet, it's coolant.
