clutch life

How long do our stock clutches generally last on a stock setup?

I have no clue, but if you dont ride the clutch, drop the clutch from a high rpm, or race everyday, then it should last a long time. I am assuming about 20k+ for the avg. driver. I have 9,500m on mine and its just as the day I bought her.

Mines got 12,150 and no problems at all, I find that it slips a little at high rpms but I think that's intentional so Chevy doesn't get a lot of busted trannys for warranty service. Our trannys are only rated for 150 ft/lbs of torque. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Getrag_F23_transmission

I've got almost 33k miles now, and haven't been stock for a long time, stage 2 w/2.8 (60# injectors), I/H/E, and custom tune. No issues that I've noticed yet.

I've got almost 8,000 on mine and I just started to notice some slippage. I don't race or have any mods done to my car, I've never even used 93 octane. I stretch the legs every so often on the highway but no hole-shots. Does anybody know if clutches are under warranty and if not how much they are to service? Also, could a slipping clutch be a result of cold weather, like 20 degrees F? The car had been running for about 10 minutes when it was slipping real bad.

It's a tranny from SAAB, out of a vehicle that ran with a turbo. I'll have to search to double check which exact one it is. Perhaps a peer of ours on here can enlighten us.
