^^ that's good news. So, go drive it and tell us "what it really does" that seems odd.

It's down to the clutch. Like I said earlier, I got on an inclined on ramp and put her on 4th at low speed and gassed it. Rev goes up, car goes nowhere...

My bad! my speed reading failed me the first time through - .. .. .. Well a clutch it is. Still not something to blame on the Tow!

That mean your clutch is toast (or on the verge). Be easy on it for now until replaced.

We don't have a lot of options for aftermarket.

The race clutches or the upgraded ones are hit and miss and can have lower life.

Our flywheels are dual mass and are recommended to be replaced at the time of clutch change. These bad boys cost a $1000.

I like OEM clutch ($300tops) and a lightweight flywheel (Fidanza lightweight, for example) for 400$

Do some searching here and on MSF; lots and lots and lots of info out there.

I currently have 54k's on my car, but about 2 or 3 months ago, I tried LC. I haven't done it in awhile, so why not?. After that, I can hear a hum while driving. Not a loud one, but loud enough to notice. Then my car got towed, after that the hum went away... so yah lol...
