    hello,
    my clutch pedal was OK, but after two 1/4 mile races I feel something different. I started like 7000rpm and fast free clutch.
    After this races I found that 3-4 centimeters from top clutch pedal possition there is wery low clutch.
    In 5 centimeters to lowest pedal possition is everything OK.
    Anybody know where can be problem, that in top pedal possition there is some "clutch space".
    Thank you

    Im no mechanic but, the way i was always told to test a clutch was to get onto a main road, build up some speed, say 60 plus, into 5th or even 6th. Then dump the accelerator, if the revs climb and you dont shoot off, the clutch is slipping. Worked or me with my leon and proved the clutch was worn out. I have heard another way which involves trying to pull away with the handbrake on but never tried that one.
