Flywheel is what failed first. I never found the clutch disc and only found pieces of the flywheel wedged into the firewall. The pressure plate was in three pieces with a pretty good sized chunk missing. I found the input shaft sitting on the left inner fenderwell.

I had a clutch come apart once, brand new mccloed , took out my brand new gforce t5, and aluminum flywheel, cut through my trans tunnel and headers, scarred the shit out of me.

Thats the first thing I said once I got the car stopped. The craziest thing is that it happened when I shifted from 2nd to 3rd. I was ahead of the Mustang I was racing until then though.
