    i have 81k on what i think is the original clutch because a woman owned the car before me, and i drive the car pretty hard. I've had my car cammed for over a year now... i bought the car with 46k on it either way and it's had the same clutch since then. I took it to the track the other night and cut a 2.0xx 60ft and it did slip a bit in first and i slammed second. Should i replace the clutch? i have a monster stage 3 sitting in the closet for when the time comes but i dunno if it's really bad.. i mean i can still put the back end out in 2nd if the clutch isn't too hot.
