And that is where you made your first mistake. I am guessing this annoying pall of yours doesn't know how to drive stick *sigh*.

Anyway you will generally know a slipping clutch when you see it. The engine RPMs will raise faster then they should when you hit the gas. A good way to check for this is shift into 3rd, 4th or 5th and keep the engine revs low 1500-2000rpms and then floor it, if the rpms jump up instead of slowly raising then the clutch is slipping.

Yeah sounds like he was practicing his drag racing launches and was slipping the clutch a lot. What you need to do is grab a 2X4 and hit him the back of the head for not treating you and your car with respect. When I drive a friends car which is not often or I rent a car I drive them easier then I drive my own car. I don't like to owe people so I choose not to take those risks.
