Weird, the previous owner said he didn't drive it much so maybe all it needed was a bit driving.

No more hanging, no more revving up when I press the clutch...

I'm liking this car a lot more now.
Do you still get RPM's hanging if you went WOT then try to change to the next gear? I notice it alot when I go WOT and when I push in the clutch just before changing to the next gear, I notice the RPMs get pegged at a certain RPM before dropping.
