    how long before i need a new clutch?

    okay..so I FINALLY got my new wheels and tires put on a couple days ago (will post pics later)... anyways, i put Nitto 555's on the back.. Now before when i got on it and shifted my tires would always break loose and chirp a little bit...not with these bad boys,,mofos just stick to the freakin ground ()

    ...just wondering how long it will be before i need a new clutch AND..does anyone have any suggestions for what would be a good clutch for the $$$?, performance wise and reliability wise?

    It just depends on how much you drive and how you drive your as to when youll need e new clutch. I have a spec clutch... I dunno if I like it yet ive only had iot for a few months but it holds its own.

    If you drive properly? Just about never, or 170,000 miles, whichever comes first.

    well..i mean..i drive "normally" all the time...there are just the occasinonall times that i like to get in it ever now and then. Sometimes ever so often a race will come up and that will also intrigue me too.

    normal driving... its good to change around 50k to 70K before the clutch gets mess up more and you can't drive it.. good rule of thumb is 50 to 70..

    And when you replace it, put a twin disk back in there.

    No its a single disk. It works well though. Has stock feel and is great for daily driving.

    When the time comes let me know. I have some I need to get rid of and I'm sure I can beat any price you can find
