    Hello Guys! My 2004 360 Challenge goes into 1st gear, but only moves an 1/8" when I rev the engine. Please help!

    How many miles on your clutch? Have you noticed it slipping, or did this just start all of a sudden?

    I purchased the vehicle last year with 11,000 miles on it. I have about 250 track miles on it. It wasn't slipping at all. The 1st gear engages, but the vehicle barely moves when I rev it.

    If in neutral does it move? (stuck parking brake or frozen calipers?)
    -then-
    If you pull the paddle twice does it move in second gear?

    What about reverse? Same behaviour?. Then somehow miraculously your pis got changed or your clutch got eaten away.
    Maybe the release bearing got stuck? Not sure if that's possible anyway.
    Bring the car to an indy to read the F1 status.

    Thank you for the information. The car does the same thing when in 1st, 2nd or Reverse. It moves an inch and that is it. I can push it in neutral with no problem.

    That sounds like it thinks the door is open, or the rear hatch is open, something like that.

    I will test your theory and see what happens. Thank you.
