I am on my 2nd clutch and am having to get it replaced soon. I have only had for 2 years versus my original one lasted 5.5 years. My mechanic had put a Ford Racing one in back in April 2007. Now it is known that the high performance parts wear out quicker versus the standard OEM/factory ones? It just seems unlikely that it would wear out in under 2 years. My car is a daily driver.

That seems like very short life. Don't want to sound like an arse, but are you resting your foot on the pedal or something while driving/starting from a dead stop that would wear it out quickly?
Or an adjustment/alignment problem could lead to short clutch life...:confused:

i would then check for an alignment problem -or- last time it was done was the flywheel resurfaced? I assume it got a pressure plate as well as the disc replacement. Signs point to an alignment issue that would contribute to premature wear.
