    Clutch was slipping but now its fine!

    I Spent monday drag racing my s3, i did about 7 runs, and on the way home, my clutch seemed to be slipping, as when i accelerated in 6th at around 3000k the revs just increased and the speed of the car didn't, so i backed off and just took it easy all the way home, this did happened a few times on boost. when i got home for the next few days the car sat on the drive and i took the car out to see how bad it actually was, and it didn't seem to do it any more? whats up? is my clutch on its way out or what, i am confused!

    Clutch is more than likely on its way out mate. Symptoms will be more apparant when the clutch is hot (after drag racing launches lol) and when its a bit glazed up (after drag racing launches.......) Take it easy and itll probably last for a while, abuse it and it will get progressively worse untill the point its slipping in every gear and lighter engine load.

    well i had a similar problem last year, when i use to do aggressive gear changes around 5500rpm the clutch would slip, that was in Feb 2010 and up till now i still have not changed my clutch, i do a couple of launches now and then but it still seems to be holding up fine..
