Right now I just drive normally, but when I was racing autocross in Indiana it seemed that I was pretty hard on it. The clutch is almost worn out right now but I still seems to be holding. I think I only have about 10 to 15,000 more miles before it startes slipping away. I can't be mad because its already lasted longer then I ever expected.<img src=icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle>

The 1997's seem to have clutches that last forever. Red's clutch was going strong even with many drag launches on it at around 60 ro 70,000 miles. My dad's clutch has over 120,000 on it, and it is fine, (but he doesn't race)<img src=icon_smile_dead.gif border=0 align=middle>
Don't worry about yours till it starts to give out...or till you need a replacement to to higher HP....
Leave it to Random to Needlessly complicate things.
I am gonna have close to 200 horsepower at the wheels in about a week, I expect that I am gonna get maybe 20,000 miles. I race alot but hey, I paid for the car and I'm gonna have fun with it. Thats what we bought our cars for and a new clutch is like $400 - $500 installed. Think about the fact that, we don't worry about price that much when we buy performance parts but when the part that we rely on that is stock we all of a sudden worry about price, com'on leave the car stock if you dont wanna pay the consequences!<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>
