Miles on stock clutch

Just curious.

I'm currently at 143, xxx on the stocker. No problems so far. All associated parts are stock also.



Note that if you have not had to replace the clutch yet, do not vote please. It will skew the results for the rest of us.

i got mine replaced at like 46k. i got her with 40 and the clutch was only fairly solid back then. i guess a combination of my clutch-burning father, who i still try to keep away from the car for the reason alone, and my own flogging of the svtf to get my jollies

shes just passed 60k the other week, but someone hit her last friday night, im lookin at a 21 day estimated repair
