when i start off...if i try to drive off to fast...or burn out or something
it feels like the clutch is slipping
the rev goes up as high as it wants to...i usually ease of when i realise theres something wrong...
as i ease off it usually pops in correctly...and i go off on my way
what could i do to stop this?

Sounds like your clutch is indeed going out. To fix it, get new clutch and stop tying to do burnouts.

yea man your slipping the clutch way too much if you are smelling a burning smell i know this from personal experiance but i wasnt trying to do burn outs i have a 87 suzuki samari and i drive it off road where you have to slip the clutch sometimes. but ya replace it with a new one and you should be alright just try not to do burn outs especially if you havnt done anything to your engine to give it more torque because all your power comes from your higher rpm so you have to rev your engine to do anything like burning out from a dead start.
take care man

the clutch slipped when i was going up a really steep hill
the same hill which originally probably damaged my clutch
and i knew i couldnt stop on it
i noticed that the clutch didnt catch...
but i was forced to go up it in first gear w/ 5k rpm going like 5 or 10 mph lol
i still think its better than rolling back down the hill...

yea rolling back down the hill wouldnt have been good but you really need to replace that soon because from what it sounds like either the car as of now isnt too driveable it wont be really quick.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

Well, don't have the 85 GTS anymore. Gave me too much trouble. Now I have an 83 Crown Vic that Im not so proud of. Soon Im going for a 5th Gen Celica GT. The Crown Vic is a piece of dogshit.

No.. just the clutch. but why cause yourself more grief by pissing it away on useless burnouts? Once your clutch is gone, you won't be able to drive it AT ALL. Just take it easy for awhile, and you can get away with having a slipping clutch for a few months.
