Won't go into gear... blew the clutch?

So I was driving 35 mph cruzing down a long street in neutral, and then droped it into second gear. I then gave it some gas and took it to about 6500 rpms, and then went back into neutral, becuase I needed to slow down and enter a neighborhood. Once I entered the neighborhood, I tired to put it back into gear, and it woud'nt go. I can't put it into any gear whats so ever, and can't start the car in gear. The clutch pedal seems a little hard and shakey.

BTW... I have the Act street clutch and Fidanza flywheel for almsot a year now. About a year ago, i miss shifted and over reved the engine bending some valves and blowing the clutch, and ever since then i grind in 4th gear only when downshifting, but never happened before my missshift.

Anyone have a clue what coud be wrong? My clutch right now feels just as it did when i miss shifted a year ago.

yeah synchros are most likely bad...$$$...that sux im sorry. my car did that one time in the middle of a race i was in forth shifting to fifth and when i did the car shook a little and i put it back it neutral and let off and when i slowed i tried to put it back in gear and it locked up and wouldnt go back in gear. so i coasted to a gas station and turned the car off and tried to put it in gear and with a lot of force i maid it go back in gear and slowly had to rework my synchro to align all my gears back in place it took about a good 20 min. just to drive away ok with out the car shuttering. now the car is fine. but i will tell you what i will never race to fifth gear again because everytime i think ot is going to do the same thing again.

try this first, stick your foot behind the clutch pedal and pull back...sometimes the clutch returner spring gets stuck and it acts like the clutch is still engaged...so pull back on the clutch pedal and see if it works...if thats not it, your tranny is F U C K E D!!!!!
