I suppose two years and 35k miles is avrg life of a clutch in a car like mine and the way I drive sometimes. I don't really daily drive the car, usually only once a week but I never race it. So I am looking for something economically to replace the clutch with. Will the flywheel need to be replaced too?

Here are the specs.. Camaro SS 2000

Thunder Racing 224/224 cam
Comp 918 springs
Thunder push rods
ASP pulley
SLP longtube headers
off-road Y-pipe
3.5" driveshaft
Moser 12 bolt w/4.10's
Basic tune by Next Level Performance/Norris Motorsports

headline says you DD it, body says you DD once a week? what is it!!!

i would say go with either a monster stage 3 (if you dont DD it often) or an ls7 (if you do DD it often)

Sorry that is confusing let me restate that.

I do not drive the car often but when I do I take it for casual drives. The car never sees the track and I never race it. So I want a friendly quality clutch set up that is cheap.

casual driving doesnt require a 224 cam or a 9in :D

get an ls7 clutch. holds decent power and feels, grabs, slips, and acts like a stock clutch. after all, it is a stock clutch. ive been using a ls7 for the past 6 months or so. its a dream compared to my old spec 1 and spec 3's

LS7,

dont take this the wrong way, but that clutch will hold up better to somone that is hard on a clutch for normal driving.

I would normally recommend a Monster level 3, but it sounds like the LS7 might be the way to go if you don't race the car.
