Smoked my clutch in reverse, any damage?

Rushing to drop off $400. to my partner flying out to Venezuela, I pull up to the airport terminal behind one of those terminal buses and then the bus decides to back up, so I put the car in R (for Race) and dropped the clutch.

Tire hoppin', Rubba burnin', reverse immediate evacuation. Got a whole lot of clutch smoke in the car I hate that smell. Saved the nose of the car, though.

Think I did any damage ? Think I glazed it ?

Ellis Juan seems to be a.o.k. Haven't tried a good launch yet but it seems to hook.

Hmmm...popping the clutch in reverse probably added material to the clutch plate...so now your clutch will last longer, right?

Some people may find it annoying that GTODEALER always offers his products, but think of it as access to a supplier who knows his customers are knowledgeable(a whole forum) so he doesn't BS. If you need something he is avail and you can trust him or he may be bashed non stop in his best marketplace. HERE.

Thanks, I always try to help and extend my services, sometimes it pisses people off 'cause they think I'm just interested in sales. While sales are important to me, I'm doing this for all of us, I screw up sometimes but hey we're all human....

Whoa, back up the accusatory truck. If there was something wrong with my Goat, GTODealer would be the first to know about it in an attempt to cut costs. Please note the J/K for just kidding at the trail end of the thread.

only thing wrong with my GTO is the owner is still paying for two future college educations and dad's only toy has to wait in line.

Our resident far north Houston Dealer will get my business 'cause:
1. He's GM
2. another GTO / Holden enhthusiast
