Not intending to pee on anyone's parade here, but the avarage mileage when the clutch decides to retire is about 19,000 miles. Mine went south at 18,000, and others here have lost theirs as high as 23,000.

A number of burnouts when it was new and no problems (5200 miles) other than the annoying 1-2 shift grind when it is cold.
Same here. Once in a blue moon under heavy acceleration she'll grind second. But, just over 26,000 miles now and still going strong.

I have been driving my 08 GT 500 for a while now and it seem that the clutch is working just fine. I am waiting for problems , but none so far. I have 20 k on the car. Has anyone not had any clutch problems? SUDDEN.
None here-about 4,000 miles.

It has gon a 10 sec quarter mile. I have been driving it with over 700 RWHP for over a year. The car has a total of 35000 miles on it. The poor ssucker finally said "I have had enough" when I put a race tune in it and hit over 770 RWHP!! It is still fine in first and second, but as soon as you put a load on it in 3rd gear or higher the engine blows rioght through it! I am not complaining. Just trying to figure out what to replace it with. I am leaning toward mcleod.

I'm at 2500 miles and same rwhp . Stock clutch works perfectly. I'm currently pulling the trans and installing the shelby shifter and un-sure on the Spec P trim, or McLeod clutch. I won't have the funds until next month [ 1500.00 ] so for now just gaining knowledge. FWIW the guys over at Lethal are the best.
