Hey Guys..

Im not too sure, but it feels like my clutch slips when i try to gun it in 1st?!
It doesnt do it all the time though, at least 50% of the time though..

The car only has about 82000kms on it - it an EL XR8 manual..

Does it sound like the clutch slipping or ..??

Thanks guys.

Usually slip in higher gears when more torque is applied ???
Check the cable MAY be too tight, holding clutch apart somewhat...

Nope, doesnt do it in 3rd 4th or 5th at all, pretty much only in first when you plant it while at around 3grand revs or so..
And the clutch cable is adjusted perfectly, so i dont know what the f**k to think??

Any other suggestions? :(
