Clip features in model builder and write/save to the input feature class

Can anyone help me clip and delete features from a feature class using model builder with interactive input from a user?  I have a line feature class as input and I have set up a feature set that will collect the polygon from a  user in ArcMap.  I want to basically erase these features from the input feature class.  I don't however want to use the erase geoprocessing tool because I don't want to create a new output each time the model is executed.  Any ideas on how to process and write back to the original feature class would be appreciated.

You can overwrite original file with the new output or use delete/copy(rename) or you could use split with select and delete selected features...not sure about the last one.
