ACT 6 puck clutch life

Well i think my clutch is starting to fail. I bought the car with an ACT 6 puck disk, ACT performance pp, and a lightened flywheel. The disk has about 40-50k miles, the pp and clutch have about 30k miles.

Last night I hammered from first to second and the clutch showed its age; the tires gripped completely and the revs matched ony after about 1/2 a second indicating some slippage.

How long is a setup like this supposed to last??

It's a racing clutch, so I'd say anywhere between 0 and 1 races.

...kidding...

You're going to have to pull it apart and look at what's gone wrong before you assume the disc has gone bad. It could be something else.

sounds like it has scene plenty of miles already. I had an ACT street disk fail on me in 20k but the drag racing is what killed it.

If it's anything like mine, the pressure plate and flywheel wear a lot faster than the actual disk does.
