I did this in my old TF... the clutch lasted a fantastic 1500miles form the day i fit it to the day i had to take the gearbox back off and put a new one on lmao

mind you it was a cheap one but still... it didn't do the release bearings much good either !lol

clutch is the least of your worries as it puts extra shock through your gearbox,propshaft,rear diff and rear driveshafts

If the clutch is the factory organic type then yes, it will wear out real quick. They dont like the heat and will fall off quickly.

A sintered or coppermix type clutch disc will hold on good and strong. And matched with a heavier pressure plate is even better.

drive it and with foot flat to the floor on accelerator quickly kick the clutch pedal on and off causing it to put massive amounts of stress through the drivetrain to attempt to loose traction on wheels

To get it sideways.

If you bring it to DWYB I will sit in with you to give you some pointers on drifting.
