What kind of hp are you planning to make. If you get something that has a stronger pp like the act hd then you can use an organic disc. If you get something with a stock like pp like the cheap f1 stg 3 from gripforce clutches on ebay then it needs to have a 6 puck to have the same holding power.

organic. there's no real benefit to the other materials for a street car.

if its not a daily, the consider a metal disc. My car is a ************ to drive in traffic, but I can abuse it and not sweat any drama. Oh, and get headroom in terms of power. I have a spec s3 right now, and it works well for what I do with it.

ultimately shooting for 200+ rwhp, but for starters ill only be at 5 - 6psi. it is a street driven car, and i dont mind a heavy pedal..

I was planning on ordering the organic "yellow" disc and the "red" pp... sound good?
