Clutch slipping , only 6000 miles

Just wanted opinions on what is going on with my clutch. I just recently had the car on vacation and noticed that in higher gears if I lug the motor to get up to speed the clutch feels like it would slip then grab and hold the power untill I let off the throttle. So am I right in thinking the clutch is shot after only 6k miles on the car or is it normal characteristics for our clutches. 13 zl1 m6

By lug the motor you mean being in 6th gear at 1800rpms and flooring it?

Im at 4k miles and my clutch is inconsistent, some days it is great and drive able all around town, then some days it feels like I have very little engagement point and if I'm not careful it is very easy to stall the car. I've noticed a small lag at 4k Rpms then getting on it.

However I've been very hard on the clutch and have been above stock hp for 80% of ownership, I would just hate to imagine I need to replace it at 4k miles

500 for labor quoted fom dealer, clutch is upper 300's, but when you add the flywheel, slave cylinder, and throw out bearing, you are just at 1000..

Personally I wouldn't put a new oem stock one back in, I've read there's a couple triple discs that have " stock like" driveabilty

I installed a stock clutch since the first one held up to a lot of abuse before going out. Cost me $345 plus $40 to resurface the dual mass flywheel. Found an old machine shop and the guy told me it's no issue to resurface a dual mass and does then a lot. Mine is smooth as butter and grips great.

I had a dealer quote me $1600. That's why I did it myself. It's actually really easy.

When mine goes, it's OEM for sure. Can't beat it for the money.

If I'm in say 4 th gear around 50 and stomp the throttle the clutch will slip rev up a little higher then grab without slipping again till I let up . It's weird bc if I start off from first and bang through the gears it doesn't slip at all

And if in fact the clutch is going bad, what replacement clutch and flywheel would be reliable for our cars. I only have a full exhaust, roto- fab and tune

I have a lightly used one if anyone is interested. Swapped it out for an aftermarket one just because of the HP upgrade. Clutch and flywheel have a thousand miles on them. I wanted to stay with the stock one cause it feels so good and had great luck with it.

I had the same happen to me and was happening in 3-6th gear. The dealership replaced the clutch and flywheel on mine under warranty. But it took awhile since they had to make sure that nothing I had added to the car was the cause of it. Make sure when you explain it to the dealership that you tell them that without shifting gears or pressing in the clutch the rpm goes up X amount before it grabs goes.
