Anyone have ideas?

I'm about to buy a set of wheels and don't need my clutch to go out sometime soon.

The car has never been to the track nor has the clutch been slipped or dumped.

Currently have 50k on the stock clutch, bpu.

the best way to test a clutch is to put the car into a high gear (5th) while sitting still and then let it out. If the clutch can be let out w/out the car stalling there is not much left. Judge at what point the car stalls and roughly gauge how much clutch is left

Your clutch is fine most likely.

The best way to test a clutch is to remove it of course. Second best way is to do a high speed, high gear, full throttle pull and see if it slips.

That said, when I "test clutches" I take it for a quarter mile pass. :) Heat from the launch with a strong high gear pull is pretty definitive, but of course you wear it out from the test. Ah the viscious circle.
