Sometimes, when i start pulling high RPMs, my car starts to smell like shit under the hood, like burning electricity. Really shitty smell, horrible sometimes when i race. Anyone have this problem or know what it could be????:confused:

Does it smell like rotten eggs? If so I think you have a bad o2 sensor.

That would smell in the exhaust, though, correct?

Does it smell like oil burning? Check for any melting plastic around wires, etc.

Yea, that would be more in the exhaust. For some reason, my car stinks sometimes when i first start it up and run it for the first time. After that it goes away for the whole day. I smell it from the drivers seat, so I suppose it comes up from under the car and through the windows.

Sounds (smells?) like your clutch,
mine does it too when I push hard throuh the gears. I doesn't seem to effect anything but your
nose though and I wouldn't woory about it unless you start noticing the clutch slipping or if it starts doing it constantly.
