I have a manual '01 ZX3. Whenever I rev my engine I smell burnt rubber. It's only when I rev my engine high. It smells like smoked tires. Is this my clutch? I'm not that hard on my car and have only ~50,000 miles.

could be clutch but I'd first check all your belts for signs of wear (frayed edges, cracked surfaces, black rubber "dust" etc) If it is your clutch there's something else wrong.

I dunno bout you... but to me a clutch, cat-converter, brakes, and burning rubber all have distinct aromas... easily distinguishable.

I'd check all your hoses and belts... to make sure nothin is rubbin or melting!
