    if the clutch has 30k on it, if it is a hard 30k, it might just be worn out. Ive seen stock and aftermarket clutches last 2000 miles and i have seen them last 100,000 miles or more. It is all in how it is used. Some of the high performance stuff does well in holding power, but wears fast.

    there are tons of vendors on here that should be able to hook you up with a good one. Look thru the vendor forum and you should be able to find someone running a perfermance clutch special
