i am new to stick, and last night i absolutely fried my clutch
I started from a stop and killed it. I quickly(read: in a slight panic) started it back up and gave it more gas, but the car still bogged and almost died. Pissed, i revved to about 3k and slipped the clutch till I finally got the car into gear (about 7 seconds of clutch slippage) before i was even out of the small intersection i could smell it. i'd tried to start from 3rd gear instead of 1st. I let both the clutch and I chill out for about 10 minutes then drove the last mile to the restaurant.
after an hour in the restaurant, I started the car back up and immediately could smell my clutch again. shouldnt the car have smelled fine? theres no way the clutch was still hot is there? is there anything that I should to to try to offset the damage that i did?
and no, I will not be trying that stunt again
