losing power could it be the tranny??

I've been driving my car for about 4 months after the engine build and it drove fine and couldn't be happier but recently I've been noticing that when i stomp on the gas my car just doesn't go and i think hear some noise coming from the transmission.

the rpms just go up and i and accelerate slowly and sometimes stay the same speed. now I've checked my clutch by doing a couple tests. no smell , stall out test, cable check, etc… so i don't think that could be it. also when i begin to accelerate going about 2500 rpm i can hear a light tap going on somewhere behind the engine getting louder the more i accelerate.

i currently have a center force clutch don't know what could be the culprate. I'm thinking it can be something in the tranny like the input shaft or something but I'm clueless at this point. if anyone has had experience with something like this please let me know , it will be much appreciated

I would think if rpms go up but not speed it would have to be the clutch...

Put the car in 5th at about 30. Floor it. If rpm's shoot up without speed it is most likely your clutch.
