Default Whats the best clutch for my weekend warrior?

I'm trying to decided which clutch to put in my 2010 S4. Which brand and type would you recommend? Brands I've seen are South bend, JHM, and Clutchmaster is there anything else out there?

My car is my daily driver so I don't want anything that will be to harsh or won't last too long for my day-to-day commute. I plan to have full bolt-ons with an aggressive tune and I'd like to do road course racing on the weekends, with an occasional trip to the dragstrip.

My last car was a Mazda with a south bend clutch that I loved, so I may be partial to that brand but I have to Idea which to pick.

Thanks,
-Alex

I have a JHM stage 3 clutch, which just means ceramic on one side and organic on the other. I also sourced their flywheel. It seems to be durable.

How many miles have you had it? How is the clutch pedal feel?

About 3000-4000 miles. Feel and travel is the same, perhaps a tad less slop. Engagement point is quicker. It's in the same spot but it demands a faster release or one side slips (rightfully).

I went ahead and ordered the JHM stage 4 kit, we'll see how it goes!
