Ok, so I took my car out for a drive last night, and I encountered some problems. First of all, I didn't run my car hard. I actually drove it quite mildly. Anyway, I noticed A LOT of revving. So I figured I was pulled up to far in the seat or something. Then the smell of burning rubber filled the air. I then realized that when I put it in any gear, 1-5, it would run fine until about 3000 rpm, then it would only rev. It would only rev, and I wouldn't go anywhere. This is really pissing me off, and I figure it will be VERY EXPENSIVE. But, if anyone knows what is going on, it would be nice to get an idea or two. Thanks !

Sounds like the clutch is slipping.
