maybe bad clutch, maybe bad throw-out bearing... dont seem like your trans is out.. if you can still put it in and out of gear, then your tranny guts are still intact.. when i blew my trans in my 3000gt vr4, I couldn't put it in gear at all, all the shafts had snapped when i did a 6g RPM launch and it just made a huge POP sound and shook... your trans doesn't sound gone to me..
