Just finished installing a new clutch pack onto the car. I wanted to test to see if everything went well.
Started up the car, put it in first gear without using the gas pedal only the passenger side axle moves. When you press on the gas the car struggles but the driver side axle does not move, although it seems as if it is trying.

Is it more of a possibility that I did not push the axles in far enough?
Could it be a different issue all together?

The old clutch was completely burned out from a driver who did not know how to drive a manual transmission car.

Thanks in advance.

I never thought of that being the case. I wonder why its struggling when I press on the gas while its lifted up then. I need to look into this further

I put the car on the ground and it moves without struggling. I'm going for a test drive once I figure out the idle surge. I think its either because of the old gas (A few weeks old, I added HEET) or the fact the ECU cable looks jacked up.

More to follow

Drove it around the block for 15 mins. Drives perfectly fine. The idle surge is slowly going away. as I figured some bad gas. If I stop being lazy I'll make a write up one of these days for DSMtuners. for the clutch replacement.
