i feel i have been killing my clutch lately in the corners because ive been using it to deliver the power out of corners on the exit (and it has greatly helped!)

will my clutch ever become as grabby as a '00 clutch or will it stay smooth like it has been so far? just to let you know i change my oil a fair amount

If you have been slipping your clutch out of turns, it won't become grabby, just the opposite. It will wear out the plates and begin to slip. What you are using your clutch for is called "clutch abuse." If you want your plates to last, then stop abusing it and downshift.
