I beleive these clutches are really good from the factory. I took mine out at 40k with a ton of meat on it. This was from racing and spraying.

gotta be honest, I'm afraid to change the fluid. I dont want to know!

Although I think my clutch is starting to glaze or something. seems I am holding the clutch pedal down longer and longer before she wants to move. May just be me getting older and sloppier though.

did u know the exact same trans when used in a ford escape does not use atf for fluid? that same g series trans has gear oil (75-90w) recommended. I think the atf just isnt enough of a lubricant when subjected to hard core driving.

Exactly Rob this is why I have the same feeling that atf is to thin of a fluid. With this can shed down from after a period of time. With the new Lsd coming out I think you can still use the same old regular 75w-90
