After A little bit of racing, I noticed how my car was acting strange.
I would hit the gas and te car takes of till about 3000 rpm in 3rd gear and then the engine just revvs.
I left the car in the garage overnight and now it is fine again...
What could this be?
Opinions please..
Ow my car is a 1995 318is

Clutch fade. You've heard of brake fade? It's the same thing but wtih the surface of the clutch and flywheel heating up and not grabbing properly.

Kevin

P.S. If it happens in normal driving it can sometimes be an indication of the clutch wearing down too thin, but since you were "racing" I doubt that's the case.
