I've been to 2 Holley LS Fests with my Cougar and I do this all weekend long. Easily a dozen passes, some being back to back. Burnouts don't abuse the clutch if you know how to drive. High RPM launches can heat up the clutch, but that depends on the level of slipping the clutch at the launch.

My personal opinion is that most clutch issues (regardless of brand) are predominantly self inflicted due to a lack of basic knowledge.

What im getting as is what is the heat actually mechanically doing to have the clutch acting that way? This all sounds like hydraulic/slave related problems to me, and not the actual clutch itself.

I said most, but if you feel this way, it might be true. It's not just driving, but also proper installation and testing. On top of that, people start mixing and matching parts without fully understanding why. For instance the prevent theory about hydraulic fluid turning black is that it's being contaminated with clutch dust. This is absolutely ridiculous, but people repeat it over and over again, until it becomes "truth."

My tick master is pretty good. No complaints here. except for PITA installation complaints. But that is GMs fault.

When I bought the tick I was chasing an issue which I initially thought was the stock master being too weak. Now that it's sorted and working I don't have any desire to pull it apart again.

That said, next time the engine is out I'll probably dig up that stock master I have laying around and weld a threaded rod to it to see if I like that better.
