I'm waiting on some clutch parts for my 2nd, 4th, and 6th gear side. Shudder is getting worse upshifting into those gears. Really bad. 6th gear shudders so bad at interstate speeds with a headwind, I have to slow down.

I hope it stays together long enough to last the 10 days it's going to take to get the "emergency backordered" parts.

What a nightmare...

On the way over my small hill tonight, on my street at about 10 mph and coasting, the engine rpm soared to 4K for a bit, as if in neutral, and shuddered so violently, when it caught, it shook the whole car.

I'm wondering how long the clutch will last for the 1st, 3rd and 5th gearset, after the other side is replaced?

"We have a problem, Houston"...

You have the same issue I have, Reedleo.
