Yep, I thought one of the axles had let go, thats how it felt. I'll dig in a bit further with them over the phone on monday, make sure they crossed their Ts and dotted their Is with that clutch diagnosis.

Its hard for me to imagine a clutch just completely letting go without some major peices breaking in there which would create "SOME" noise. This is totally silent.
