    An indication that your clutch is going is that you'll hear the engine rev really fast when you push the gas pedal down, and the car won't accelerate at all - the tack needle will shoot up the dial with no increase in speed. Also, not the best idea to do this too often, but if you are in top gear and floor the pedal, your car should accelerate evenly. If not, that is also an indication of a slipping clutch. Is this your stock clutch?

    Right, I didn't literally mean it won't accelerate at all, but rather the car won't accelerate commensurate with what you would expect (or what is normal) for that gear/throttle pressure. It sounds like it is slipping. What mods/miles are on your car?

    Well 130K is a fair amount of miles for a stock clutch (especially if driven very spiritedly). Sounds like you might not know if it is stock or not, or what was done to the car before you purchased it (not intended to offend you in any way whatsoever). Bring it into a mechanic and have them take a drive. A slipping clutch is very obvious.
