Default clutch kits, which one?

Hey, is there a difference between the 'race kits' and street kits from ACT?

What's the difference between sprung hub and puck?

Which would you suggest?

or

or

Sprung clutches are easier to drive unsprung clutches are pretty harsh but have less wieght and can generally hold more agressive power. Puck clutchs can usualy hold alot more to but the low speed engagment is chaterry. For your power gaols a ebay f1 racing clutch for 150$ will sufice though tom

233ft/lb. will be around 210rwtq. put you close to 230/240hp. The HD kit would be best if you dont push it past that point.

I just spent around $490 on a clutch kit... Clutchnet, 6 puck, sprung hub, red, 3x PP - race ONLY (hahaha). And I also got the ACT prolite flywheel for $280 shipped. Try clutchnet out. as long as it's not custom and they don't have to make each single part they can give you a decently good price.
