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.

Clutch kicks???? What the hell does that mean??
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

If your doing it all the time then an uprated clutch is always a good idea, in reality I normally drift the standard one till it starts feeling very worn then swap it out or have another spare incase it suddenly dies on me. Skylines are for enjoying though so have fun and just make sure you dont drift into anything, kerbs and the wall are not your friends! hehe
