I hate to say this but stop with the burn outs and abusing the car. It is not set up for that kind of use. I doubt there is a clutch set up that can withstand this kind of abuse.

Drive it normal and I bet you get the longevity back.

But that's what am saying I DON'T do any burn outs or track racing or any harsh driving may do a lil speed on the high ways only And even tho I take my time still destroying the clutch

If I was doing some serious abuse like that then I would understand why it's going and going so fast but that's not the case I take my time and my car is eating up clutch : -(

Have they been warranting these jobs for you? Have they offered any reason? If they are a good shop, they should be helping you out here.

They were all payed jobs and that's pretty much the only shop over here that does or deal with Evo and performance cars they said I need to learn how to drive but even if I couldn't drive there's no way I could run through clutches that fast and plus dis is not my first manual car and have had big street bikes and never a clutch porblems like dis am living in the Bahamas I know of I was anywere state side this issue would have been slove if you give some advice on what I can change I'll just change ever needs to change to slove dis porblem and also how I had the competition twin in and when I am cruise n and just eas off the gas pedel I hear a grind n sound the guys said that's the clutch that I have in there causing drive shaft to make that noise
