The air changed a bunch from day time to night time....happens alot at our track this time of year, being right by the water. Normally right when it gets dark I fatten an hour or 2 by the mains could be as much as a 1/4 turn.
Going form 95 to 75 degrees while your at the track changes your tune alot.

If you roll your car back and fourth and it is smooth....probably not clutch,,,unless you broke a spring....which you cant see unless you take it apart

If when you try to start it the wheels turn that's an indication of a problem with the clutch. Usually bad clutch bell bearings. Are you using a starter box?

Yeah, if the CB bearings were locked up the wheels would spin a lot more than what you are used to, even with no throttle input. It would be a noticeable change. I would probably start looking at other things.

What up fellas.You will indeed see me in a few weeksRob i was asking on your clutch becouse last time we talked about it you still had the original.You got lots of great info on that topic.While it's apart may as well replace the bearings.Check your shoes for eggshaping where your pins are.And also aplug may be fouled deep inside where you can't see,and it will still glow on the ignitor,it's happend to me.
