I would say it should last for awhile if you have a soggy clutch and don't use the nitrous but if that changes , the trans will shed its teeth.

An adjustable one! It will save your trans but then you have to set it up. Suppose it depends on how serious you want to take it.
I personally can't be arsed to go thru that for my street strip car but you have a LOT more power than me
Dont know much on the 'slipper' clutch setups but a good investment if you have the time/money to play with it.
There is plenty of info on UMTR http://www.umtrnorth.com/
Im still learning so take some of my advice with a pinch of salt.
I feel if you can ensure tire spin of some degree on launch this with soften the hit on your tranny.
Id say avoid a hard hitting clutch ( saying that I run a Spec 3 )
In hind sight would have not got one but it has been great..but they have a 'tranny killer' reputation. Like stated a soggy clutch is your release valve and a slipper does just that before hooking up.

Perhaps a duel friction. Always a compromise with a street n strip car. My faceplated TKO II is bearing up well...so far
Avoid dead hooking, say on slicks. Wheel spin can sometimes be your wallets friend.
Again only things from my limited experience but hope it gets the ball rolling.
