    Rising RPMs but not as much acceleration

    The RPMs sometimes rise disproportionately with the speed of the car.
    I think this can only mean one thing, but I wanted to get some other opinions first.

    The weird thing is, it happens more in the higher gears then the lower gears.
    what do you all think it is?

    Here are my mods:
    ls1 lid, cut out, powerplate, DMS springs, spec stage I clutch (installed 30k miles ago).

    sounds like the clutch is slipping to me, the reason is it more promenant in the uppper gears is the lack of mechanicle advantage that the lower ratios in the lower gears provide.

    Did you check the surface of the flywheel when you intalled the clutch?
