If you do mostly roll-ons you should be ok.

just run it til it breaks- hell they all break. I have a King Cobra in my car now and i had a centerforce before that.Both clutch discs looks just like a stock disc anyway. I guess the main diffrence is the pressure plate. Now, when you start spending more money on dual friction clutches and kevlar discs- thats a different story. I aint tryin to be a smart *** but I would just run it til it breaks and then get a better one. Like said above- as long as you are doing rolling burnouts and spinning that aint too hard on the clutch. but dumping it with slicks with the motor revved to 5K will kill the poor clutch in a hurry(and kill other things also). I was playing my buddy in his Z28 one day and took off spinning like hell- i grabbed 2nd and spun a ways and hooked and when tried to shift to 3rd the clutch pedal was just flopping around lifelessly. I thought I had broke the clutch cable but that damn centerforce had flew into at least 5 pieces. The disc was destroyed and the pressure plate was bent all to hell. Now I have the King Cobra and it does good but when the motor is revved to 6000 + rpms the clutch feels weak- its like the clutch pedal is sucked in automaically. Other than that its fine. Sorry so long but maybe this will help someone.
