I'm looking at purchasing the Clutch Industries RPM Level 3 SSC clutch plate.

Quote:
Level 3: SSC
A sprung centre type clutch plate with cerametallic buttons rivetted to the disc. This type of plate typically has less inertia than a standard plate and this can translate into a faster shift with a reduced shift effort. This type of plate retains a sprung centre to dampen the impact and loads that reach the drive train. This type of plate can be harsh during operation and it is not suitable for being purposely slipped. The Ceramic buttons increase the torque capacity of the clutch without requiring an increase in clutch size.

I specifically want the Level 2: SSCC as it is the same, but has the dampening between backing plates, so would be nicer for a street driver, but CI are unable to supply this by itself (and I already have a good heavy duty pressure plate).
I've looked at Exedy as an alternative, but they also won't supply there Heavy Duty Cushioned Brass clutch plate by itself.

The only other alternative is Level 1 Organic, but I'm concerned this isn't heavy duty enough for the new donk and upped boost. This one is $40.00 cheaper. Might be worth giving it a go, and if worst comes to worst, I move up to the heavier one later...

Level 1: Organic
A sprung centre type clutch plate designed for drive-ability. These clutch plates use an Organic friction material resistant to slippage and burst. They provide good pedal feel and progressive take up when matched with a high capacity cover assembly.

Any ideas or thoughts?

For being only $40 cheaper, i'd reccomend going the next level, because if your unsure that it'll be ok, it probably won't.

I'd rather not change the clutch again than save $40.

2c.
