Car is revving but wont go, slave cylinder? clutch? HELP!

Past weekend I was driving my car and it just stopped in the middle of the road. It refused to start. I had it towed to Auto Zone and my friend with a 4th gen prelude and alot more knowledge than I helped get it runnung it wouldnt shift so he showed me how to drive it turning it off puuting it in first and then starting it. I just had to turn it off and redo this process at every stop light. Then today I was driving up a hill in 2nd shifting to 3rd an dll the car would do is rev it wouldnt move at all. somehow i made it half way up the hill and I towed it to my friends shop. idk what the problem is my friend said I need to replace my slave cylinder last weekend but that was before all this. it smells as if the clutch is gone which is weird since i just put a new clutch in. Any feedback would be greatly apperciated. Ive looked online but cant find any helpful info so this is my last resort.

Did you break the new clutch in properly?

Yeah I've been easy on it I haven't been racecaring it. my friend thinks it could be the cv jouints or a twisted axle. I wasnt racing when it happened I was just driving to school.

Is there any pedal pressure? I would have someone push the clutch in and someone else looks to see if the slave is even moving. I doubt your new clutch is cooked. If it wont shift the clutch probably isn't separating. Check the reservoir by the master too. If its empty then there's a leak.
