Default Reputed Members Drive My VTEC and Tell Me What's Wrong With It.

I want some/one of the reputed OHC VTEC owners from Banglore to drive to drive my VTEC and tell me what's wrong with it.
I feel there is too much of slack in drive-train and the clutch doesn't behave properly.

Fuel will be all mine.

They say it's fine. RAC, Whitefield and Dakshin. Passenger side drive shaft is due for replacement but that's not a major factor.

No prob, i'm gonna be with the team-bhp gang this weekend. Catch up with us and we'l see how we can help you out.

What exactly do you mean by slack, do you hear a clanking sound when you hit the gas pedal? And does your clutch take more than 50% release before it engages? I've seen this on a few old Citys.

BTW, how many kms has your car done?

The car kinda slings fore and aft when you apply or remove the throttle at low speeds. With AC it's worst.
I know one of my drive shafts is bad and I am not sure if this can be attributed to the shaft entirely.
And for clutch, it doesn't slip but shudders in 1-2, 2-3 and sometimes 3-4 shift.
