Angry Any Idea about problem in my engine?

hi, would anyone share his idea on this...

i changed my clutch, then after 2-3 runs in the track i tried to start my engine again, starting is normal as it goes to idle the way it is, but i notice that when i rev it the wheels are not moving i tried to rev it for about 5-7 times then it moves, but at first it wont move, i know this is not normal. I remove the plug and notice that there are a lot of unburned fuel inside... i can still run the car with a good performance, im just thinking why the wheels are not moving for several revs after starting.

wonder my Low end mixt is rich or lean, probably not the top end because i can feel it has a good top end with a light trail of smoke.
and i the engine smells different, maybe because of the unburned fuel... am i damaging the engine?

Does anyone have experience this? please i need your ideas...

Thanks in advance.

I don't know my car does the same thing sometimes. I think its because the engine has to warm a little bit to create the needed RPMs.

ah ok so you experience the same thing too, one of the post i have read is saying that maybe its within the clutch or the flywheel... gonna looki in tothat later, just want to see what is really wrong, because i have 3-4 runs already so bu that time i think the engine has been heat up...

thanks...

Does your car have a 2-speed tranny? If so, it may be the one-way bearing in the first gear that needs lubing with Serpents one-way oil. At least my Impulse did something like this when the one-way bearing was dry..

To me it sounds like the problem is something in the clutch.
If the engine is starting and revving without any problems, then i dont think your problem is engine related.
It may be worth your while to disassemble the clutch and recheck the shoes/housing etc.....perhaps something has come adrift in here?........also when fitting new clutch housings I always give the inside a good wipe with a rag, some clutch housing are given a light coating of oil/grease to prevent them getting surface rust, so perhaps this may be causing the clutch to slip.
Good luck
Cheers

If it just revs it's ring off and goes nowhere, it is likely to be the one-way bearing on first gear slipping. Only use lube designed for one ways or even simpler, do not get any oil on it at all and replace often, about every year or so!
