I have a 2017 wrx. (manual)

The weirdest thing happen to me, and twice in one night, not once.

I was in gear revving around 2k without my foot on the gas, then i hit the gas normally and the car started to rev as if it was in neutral and spool like i was brake boosting.

It only happened almost for a second and it reached 3k rpm before realizing its in gear.

Anyone know whats going on? thanks

That’s an odd description but sounds like a bad clutch

this sounds like a question those Click and Clack NPR guys used to answer on the radio. It has the sound of a big mystery and even some drama known only to the asker. Of course I don't know if that is the case here, but it feels like that.

Yes, as XJ says, first thought is clutch acting up. Buuuuutttttt, where do you live? Black ice - wheel spin and revs before the TC catches it? Any TC light upon occurrence?

Wet road and same wheel spin scenario?
