Clutch noise

So the clutch has about 10k miles on it. One morning it started slipping so I adjusted it some and it has not slipped again. But what is happening, is that at 4K rpm, you can hear a scraping sound like sandpaper and noticeable power loss. It drives just fine up until there. It's a spec 3+ clutch, Steeda firewall adjuster, Steeda quadrant, MM cable

It is possible the flywheel or clutch over heated and glazed. It is also possible that the pressure plate has gone bad.

Do you drive in a lot of stop and go traffic?

Do you race the car frequently?

Do you enjoy spirited rides with tight corners and turns?

Clutch noise

Thanks for the reply. It turned out to be belt slip. The noise I heard was more like a hiss now that I've done some research on it. I moved my idler pulley to tighten the belt up some and it's gone
