Default Help - Clutch Reving But Going Nowhere

I went to start my buggy today (for the first time - 2nd hand) and it wouldn't move unless it was very high revs. I thought the clutch shoes would be the problem as they were worn out, so I put new clutch shoes in and it is still doing it. What could be the problem?
It is also making a loud rattling noise when the car is going or even when you are pushing it (while not going) or letting it roll down a hill while not running

Cheers

Make sure your flywheel is tight!

Take your clutch apart and then re-assemble it after you make sure your flywheel is tight on the crankshaft. That is the first thing to elliviate as a problem.

Im going to check to see if the flywheel is tight.

I just noticed how ever that the clutch bell doesn't even go around until it is at high revs
