When a clutch starts to go out, and is not replaced before it is totally gone, can it damage the fly wheel? Like with brakes, will the clutch disk wear down to the bare metal?, or does something in the design of it prevent this from happening. I have a car that slips a lot if you try to accelerate hard from a stop and it has done this for almost a year. I just try and take it easy on starting out in first gear. This is just something I've always wondered about.
