Default Clutch slip? Diff issues? - 02-22-2019, 09:20 AM

So the last month or two intermittently I have been having an issue where I get spirited on the street, shift and the revs surge but the car isn't going anywhere. I don't smell clutch and it grabs fine from a dig. Not throwing any codes.

Any ideas on what it may be? Oddest sensation, almost like I'm in neutral but not...... It's a 6 speed with upgraded clutch and single mass fly....

Bump, I have had the EXACT same thing happen at the track, it usually happens in 3rd gear.

i havent heard anything more on it, but if i were to just guess... the only thing it seems to be is the clutch slipping. might not do it on launch our in 2nd cause the tourqe isnt getting high enough like it does in 3rd. the part that confuses me though is the zero smell of a clutch burning. hopefully someone with more knowledge on the subject will chime in.

Thanks! Will attempt and report back.

Is 4ish years a typical life span for our cars? Clutch was replaced about 3.5 yrs ago....

Just happened again.

Is there a way to maybe figure it out from a log?

I feel the same thing occasionally on hard shifts to 3rd gear for a split second, But most of the time itís fine. Im wonder if I should do the CDV delete.
