is it slipping or just hard to get gears? check your fluid level firstly..to test the clutch just put the car into 4th gear and handrake up..slowly release the clutch and if it doesnt cut out when clutch is released or nearly released you've a problem..also see if it goes into gear handy when it's switched off..

I might have a similar problem, but its not exactly a problem you are just used to the car and power at redline, you are well able to handle the power and are expecting more but there is no more power, thats it...
I have new clutch put in 10k km ago so its defo not the clutch in my case.
as for the hops on take off, its happening to me since i got different tyres put on a few weeks back, when i try do a wheelspin sometimes she hops instead, i think it happens because the tyres have good grip, maybe someone else could explain why it happens a bit better.

Ill try the 4th gear in morning but it's not slipping atall and holds the power just when hit limiter goes real soft..was told could be pressure plate heating up and for hopping could the clutch be warped?
