Clutch or transmission problem?
My '98 RS recently was put back on the road after sitting for 8 years. My friend and mechanic took care with replacing oil, coolant and brake fluids.
I went for my first "long" ride yesterday, and about 30 minutes in (after being behind some 1st gear slow traffic), I shifted to 2nd gently, and then gave it a good twist. It accelerated, and then felt like the rear tire was spinning. Backed off the power. Then up shifted to 3rd, and gave it some power, same thing.
My friend (not mechanical) said there was a puff of white smoke that smelled funny.
I took it easy on the way home. Near home (actually, near my mechanic's home) I tried to reproduce the issue and could not.
Anyone know what might have happened?
