If the clutch isn't driving the transmission .... as in the input shaft isn't rotating ...then it will shift into gear the same as if the engine was not even running . Another thing to check ...is the driveshaft turning when engine running, in gear and clutch out ?

Other than the rotary engine, an RX-8 works just like any other RWD car.

A clutch on an RX-8 isn't any different than any other car.

If you put the car in second gear, dump your clutch and your car doesn't stall, then most likely your clutch is dead, and again, it's the same as replacing the clutch on any other RWD car.

Sounds like the clutch disc has failed. Its either shattered or completely worn.

When I shattered a clutch disc the pedal went right to the floor. How does the pedal feel?
