If it had air in it, it would be the opposite effect, hard to release. I'd suspect either a stack up of tolerances that put it there, or just a weak stock clutch. Example, my Miata has a Stage 3 clutch, my fiancee's has a stock replacement I put in about 3 years ago...mine starts grabbing just off the floor, hers is pretty much not grabbing until right near the top, but both are good clutches.
