Hello ,so i revved my car in gear , stopped, to 5000rpm for about 3-4 séc, dont ask me why , im just new and thought revving ir um neutral or im gear would not make much difference , the car is new, is a i20N with 600km , should i be worried with my clutch state? Did this damaged my clutch ? And decreased its life span ?
Never doing it again.

Don't worry, you're fine. Just ensure the engine oil is up to full operating temperature before you stick your boot into it.

Heat cycling is good for seating rings. In fact using more throttle application for short periods of time followed by normal application is heat cycling.

Drive the car like you’ll use it daily and don’t worry .👍🇺🇸

Looking at my question i think i wasnt clear enough maybe 😂 , i didnt put my foot all the way in the clutch so it was engaged , at the end stayed that smell of Over eating clutch , so that was my worry , did i damage my clutch by doing it 1 time ?
Have not not being noticing any problems shifting gears , but maybe i took a little bit of life of my clutch

Probably a little, but if it's still driving fine now I wouldn't be worried about it. Don't stress, we all mess up from time to time 🙂
Yhea , performance cars probably have more reinforced components no? They are more prepared for this kind of things maybe 😀

Yhea , just kept thinking cus is my first car and im not that experienced driver , just didnt knew what to think 😂

It's even better if you did this to your car, than babysit it hard for 1000 km.

I once had a motor blown up in middle of overtake with one van once, now that's some good revving. :D
