    How long do they last?

    The search on this site sucks...

    How long does the stock clutch usually last on 4th gen m6's. Being as it's a flywheel and clutch change together, I'd like to have an idea on when I will need to do it.

    Too many factors IMO. All depends on how it is used and abused.

    I agree

    I'm at 135K on my original clutch and it works fine but it's never been through any 4k+ rpm drops either. Although it hasn't been babied either with 30+ track passes and 300 or so street runs.

    Isnt that pretty obvious? Put a MT DR on the back and drop it at the track from 5500. Stock clutch will be gone in no time. If you baby the car, dont drop the hammer with a sticky tire on a track, it will last longer. The answer is there, like any other stock part on these cars.
