Essentially I made an ass out of myself, trying to spin the tires. Well, all I spun was the clutch. It smelled horrible. Now after driving for 50 miles, it still stinks......:banghead: Just how much damage did I do?:dunno: :ben: :cry:

I hate to be a bearer of bad news, but besides burning the clutch, you could also be damaging your flywheel as well. Now if this only happens once or a couple of times you probably won't shorten the life of your clutch and flywheel by enough that you will notice, but if you do this often enough you will loose them quick.
