hay guys well today was my last day of high school(
) and me and friends were driving each others cars and my friend drove my car. he wasn't used to the clutch and he was riding it a bit and then he did a little burn out. ten minutes after it was parked i popped the hood and i could smell burned clutch, a lot! All the way home i smelled it.


i know the long term effects are shortened life of my clutch and tires. anything else i should be worried about?? i'm just a little paranoid considering a lot of my hard earned money went into buying this car!

thanks

Well keep a close eye on it, meaning if you feel a power loss or the clutch feels like it's slipping you may be in trouble. Otherwise he mostly likely just tuff a little life of it. I can honestly say I have left some tred down before and smelled the clutch a bit. *Heck* if it goes now you have a real excuse to put in a racing clutch right?

That's the best way to look at car problems! I brought mine in today cause I had a high speed shimmy. I was kind of hoping for a couple bent wheels so I could get new ones, but I just needed them balanced. Oh well, maybe I'll go find some big pot holes and hit them at high speeds

Hey, if you do that, just make sure you do it close to home unlike me when i was an hour away.
