Clutch support for 600+hp

I am wondering what the best clutch is as far as weight, price, durability, performance and overall life span.

There are many options which is why I would like some opinions on what you personally think is the best for a supercharged 600hp C4....

I found this on ebay for $489.00

Stage Three
ULTIMATE STREET/STRIP CLUTCH!
Great for extreme street driving and medium to heavy drag strip use, the Stage 3 clutch kit is the best solution for high powered vehicle, while still retaining the ability to shift sharp but smoothly with light pedal. The kit comes with a high clamp pressure plate, combination carbon/ceramic 3-piece clutch disc with sprung hubs, bearings and tool. The Stage 3 clutch is good to approximately 600rwhp and 680lb ft of torque.

Anyone have this clutch or know someone who does?

I would be interested to hear how that is for normal street driving and how long it would last under those conditions.

All of the LPE C4 conversions used the OEM clutch . . .there may have been a few exceptions but not many.

There is a 10.5 ZF car in MD that uses the OEM unit on and off the track with no grief.

My stroker has been fine with the OEM but it does not make 600hp: the above car does.

Call Carolina Clutch - those guys are quite good at what they recommend and you save big $$.
