so its only been 20k miles since i've used this new clutch.
i haven't launched or abused the clutch, only b/c i wanted to wait till i changed my timing belt.
Now the clutch is slipping badd. it can grab, but enought for it to drive.
im driving an 04 sti. no mods except for the clutch.
Anyways, i take it to the mechanic who installed it. (L&T Japanese Automotive)
And he tells me that its worn out. im like WTF? the clutch hasn't been abused at all.
He says that racing clutches wear out faster.
how the hell could this be possible if my clutch hasn't been driven hard.
any suggestions? ideas? anything? holla.
*also, is my exedy clutch suppose to not last long?

Its a racing clutch and believe it or not, daily driving on a race is clutch is hard on the clutch. The design of a race clutch is to be taken down the track as many times as it will last and then be replaced when needed.
