The manual trans in these cars has been hit or miss. Some people seem to get a nice smooth gear box and others get real noch'y if you know what I mean. But generally speaking, a clutch usually dies before the trans. Either way your beating up all those components pretty good with your play time. If you want this car to last you 10 years then you should probably go easy on it unless you plan on replacing or rebuilding the trans in a few years. Ultimately, the trans will eventually need work like anything else, just a matter of how long until you get to that point.
