clutch slipping only in reverse gear

Hi guys,

 

I have a mysterious issue with my 350Z, my clutch is slipping badly, but only in reverse gear.

I never had a single slip in any forward gear, not in a traffic jam or when I was pushing the car hard, but in reverse gear even if I try to reverse with nearly zero throttle and I'm very gentle on the clutch pedal, I immediately hear the whining and in 3-4 seconds I smell the burning clutch.

How is that possible? I believe I need to replace it as this is is definitely not normal...

I have an unknown single mass flywheel and performance clutch fitted by one of the previous owner (no receipt about it unfortunately).

Thanks for the ideas.

Is this still alive? Im getting the same issue except it only happens when im reversing uphill. It sounds like a whine when your clutch is slipping, except ive never had any issues on a flat surface nor driving forwards uphill.
