No, it was brand new when I got it, but I think the pressure plate broke, I will know for sure real soon. I was a good clutch, it just didnt last more than a year, although I was at the track almost religiously at on point. But it just gave out and I couldnt start my car in neutral without it bucking.
ClutchMasters Stage 3 is an excellent street/strip clutch. I've had one in my 00 Civic Si for over a year (put about 30k miles on it), and trust me it's been abused. I've broken an axle and the differential in the tranny, and the clutch still chirps 3rd gear on BFG drag radials. Either you had a defective clutch or it wasn't installed properly. It's a really strong clutch.. maybe a little too strong for me. I'm putting an ACT in my 93 GS-R (street disc/heavy duty pressure plate). My friend has that ACT in his GS-R del sol and it has better pedal feel than the ClutchMasters Stage 3.
