I experienced the same burns several times
in my car (32K miles).
Today I tried the test and it engaged in one second.
but i guess it is because the engine is powerful
and the tires grip well. One should not expect
instant grip.

: How many miles on the clutch? Try this test....go slowly, like 30 - 40 mph, and then clutch in and rev to 4500 rpms or higher, and put it into fifth, and let out the clutch quickly...What do you feel? If it engages quickly and doesnt slip, then your ok...But if you feel a very slow engagement, like a couple of seconds, and slippage, you need to replace...YOu can compound the test by doing it on an incline...good luck.
