Please do your best to avoid slipping the clutch and burning it anymore if you want it to last a little longer.

My guess is the clutch slipped so bad there was no load on the engine and you probably under-boosted target, no big deal.

i mean the clutch is no big deal and i will likely buy something today, but you really think the fly wheel is done so? i thought those things were suppose to last a while and whatnot.

i figured that with a modded car the faster wear on the clutch is eminent, but for the flywheel to go out too? is there anyway to tell before taking the whole thing apart?
