Exclamation Clutch will NOT engage in any gear!!! *HELP PLEASE**

Please help before I start pulling my hair out, thanks in advance....

The Car:

06 sti 6/mt
stock clutch(as far as I know)
stock trans(as far as I know)


-Having the "smell" of a burning clutch for a few thousand miles during normal driving, I haven't been beating on it much. (my questions start)
-started noticing "rough engaged from N to 1st & 2nd about 200miles ago
-had a tech at my local shop adjust the clutch pedal to give more free play...it was releasing high-two weeks ago

Maintenance/mods since:

-installed a kartboy SS two weeks ago
-changed grearbox fluid w/ Extra S
-dropped pan to clean the magnet, ~2 tablespoons of shavings(most likely origanal fluid)
-used grey trans pan gasket maker rtv to seal it.


-So up until today the car was fine......then all of a sudden my car lost power......my rpms were still rising(3-5K) in 4th but i was struggle to go 20 miles an hour!!!!!

-This happens in every gear...I shift the tranny goes into gear fine and easy but then the car doesn't go anywhere....just the RPMs, they are in sync will the gas pedal as normal.

-I checked the fluid, it was foamy indicating I over serviced it, so I drained it to exactly the "full" line. drove it around the block.....same condition

-I have a clutch in my online shopping cart ready to buy, but I want to confirm that there is no other things to check before I do.

So, please if you have any knowledge of this please help, I'm pissed b/c this is my DD and I dont want to drop $1k if I dont have too. thanks guys

Sounds like your clutch said goodbye. Not too difficult to interpret.
