So car has 40k on here sometimes when I go wot and bang through gears it's smells like I'm burning clutch . So maybe over summer plan on putting the spec 1 clutch from AM on there. What else would be easy to do since they will have to drop trans and will probably be pricey. Any guesses on a clutch instal price thanks

Shifter would only take ya an hour, 2 tops. It's pretty easy.

The entire clutch change/pilot bearing removal and install it all can be done in 2 1/2 to 3 hrs tops. Unless you have long tubes

Then y change it? Leave it alone it could just have something like grease or who knows what on it. Give it a few more days to see if the smell goes away. What kind of smell is it?

If your smelling it, then It's slipping. I wouldn't go wot til It's fixed, other wise you'll be replacing it sooner.

If it only happened the one time I'd say your good. We've all embarrassed ourselves showing off. Lol

I noticed that with my clutch last summer at the track. I'd slow down after reaching the 1/4 finish line and by the time I got turned around I'd smell it. At first, I assumed it was my brakes you know for stopping hard. At our track you have to keep the windows up. So I tried a hard brake with the winders rolled up and didn't smell a thing. What I thought was funny is that I was not having any other signs of probs with my clutch at the time. Turns out I got lucky. I was having a noise investigated and got a new tranny under warranty. When they replaced my tranny, I had purchased a new Exedy stage 1 clutch, FRPP TOB, and FRPP pilot bearing to install while they were doing the swap. Long story, I know. You smelling your clutch brought out the inner grandpa in me I guess. Lol The Exedy stage 1 clutch seems to be pretty go so far.
