quicksilver is an unknown quantity at this point
i'm gonna look like an idiot here, but when people talk about burning out the clutch, is that the same thing as wearing it down? a friend of mine was talking about how if you burnout a clutch sometimes the friction point can move up. please educate me!

wow. never actually thought about it. But to me i believe it is when you are doing a crappy shifting job and where you are lketting the clutch release too fast and hit as its spinning. causing the tranny o catch it badly and jerk the car. hey why don't you gotry finding a nice cheap nissan, and stallign about 3 times in a row, this is how i got my friends 240sx to smell as if it were burnign after my first lesson hehe

Rapidly wearing the clutch out. Such as riding the clutch pedal, reving the motor and dropping the clutch allowing the clutch plate to spin and not the tires. Any clutch will eventually wear out it is when the clutch wears out prematurely that it is usually refered to as burning out the clutch.
