Well...yes, and no. When I put in the 3.52:1 Swift transmission at approximately 120,000 miles, I bought a clutch kit and thought I'd go ahead and replace everything while I had it apart. The clutch disc showed very little wear once I had the transmission out, but I went ahead and replaced everything anyway (I was more concerned about the pilot and throwout bearings than anything else, given the age of the car).

It was shortly thereafter, at about 130,000 miles, that I installed a kill switch and started using P&G with EOC. So, that clutch I put in at 120,000 miles now has over 130,000 miles on it, and those miles have been driven almost exclusively with P&G.

The clutch exhibits practically no wear. It still works great.
