I figured this is probably my clutch beginning to go out on me. Any input from you guys would be great. thanks
my clutch went out last year at nashville speedway, i could tell it was going out because of the same symptoms, except mine was going out at 13000 rpms. according to the speedo, i was only running 135 when i should of been 155 or more. also try from dead stop in third gear, you will tell if it slips.
