    Has anyone had experience of using a standard M3 Evo clutch for predominantly strip runs as opposed to road use as well? How many runs would you be likely to see in a clutch life?

    Specifically, using good sports road tyres on standard wheels; this is for a car weighing just over 1000Kg but using the Evo drivetrain

    Thanks,

    about 100 launches on a new one maybe, the burnouts are pretty hard on them, I do second gear burnout until brake won't hold it and it drives out (on drag radials or R comps)

    I am putting a new clutch in my 3 litre tomorrow, but new one is a 6 puck competition clutch on UUC stage 2 alloy flywheel, going to drags saturday, weather permitting
