That burning question
Sometimes whenever I take my car to redline through the gears I smell this burning smell. The only thing that I can think of is that it is my header (I only noticed it after I had it installed) oh, and I know what clutch smells like and it is definetely not clutch. Does anyone else get this?

If its not the clutch, it could be your oil, a leak, the brakes, thats about all I can think of. Or maybe its your tires from peeling out.

I have not noticed any visible oil leaks, I also know what that smells like and it is not that. Also this happens even when my tires don't spin.

Only other thing i could think of is clutch or oil burning somewhere on the outside of the motor and you can't see it confused

I just had a bright idea, I could look for leaks on my exhaust header. Why didn't I think of that before.
