I tend to operate the clutch similar to how an auto does. I relie on it slipping for smooth launches, then release and floor the throttle. If I am out at 3 am I just release the clutch at idle and roll off. If I am in rush hour I release at 3 grand and go.

I havent worn out a clutch myself, but many Ive replaced are because of either an engine oil seal leak, tranny seal leak or just because you are inside that part of the vehicle replacing a throwout bearing, flywheel or pressure plate.

Now pressure plates with broken springs and flywheels with chewed up starter gears is another story.
