Default Clutch Advise/Help

Hey guys just wanted some quick advice about my clutch. I let a buddy test drive my STi today when a supercharged mustang pulled up to us at the light. He asked me if he could "try him" and I said I didnít care what I didnít know is that he planned on dropping the clutch at 6200 RPM. So he dropped the clutch at 62, my baby shot off like a rocket, tires spun some and I def smelled some burnt clutch. Needless to say I was pretty pissed because I didnít want him to be that hard on my car, but what is done is done. Iím just curious if this 6.2K rpm drop did significant damage to my clutch or any other part of my car. Besides this, the most I have personally launched my car at is 4200 RPM, but that has only happened once or twice. Thanks for all your help guys!

It's either going to be a) hard on the clutch or b) hard on the drivetrain, launching at 6,200 rpm.
A burnt clutch is cheaper to replace however.
As long as this is an isolated case, it shouldn't have harmed it too much.
DON'T let him DRIVE YOUR CAR AGAIN!!!!!!

Since noone else has mentioned it....

Street Racing Sucks and is not tolerated on this site. Best thing that happened is the burnt clutch.

I was going to let this guy off because he wasn't actually driving. Nor is he being a dick about it.

I'd say the clutch is still fine. Only the other day I had major clutch stinkage when I was doing a hillstart in the GT with a bootload of split wood logs. All is good so far.

I always thought you could beat up on the 6spd pretty hard and the tranny will still be good. Isn't that alot of the reason guys swap in a 6spd?

Yeah, but he promoted it by giving his friend the go-ahead.

Smells like clutch wear.

"Which leads us to this conclusion... don't let friends drop clutch."

Your right however if the strain isn't felt there it will go to the clutch, axles, etc, Just having the 6 speed does not make the whole drive train bullet proof. I found that out by busting a rear diff Diff
