What clutch should I get?

My stock clutch is kinda bad already, doesn't ever slip when driving normal, but it doesn't have enough grip to break my tires loose(yoko AVS ES100), ever. That's with almost stock power. I'll be putting on a turbo before summer(hopefully) should have 200-230rwhp to start with, running 10psi. I want a clutch that will hold strong up to at least 250rwhp, but the car is also my daily driver, only car I have. I was thinking of getting a 4puck w/springs, and a pressure plate somewhere in the middle of stock and full race. I am doing auto-x this year, and next year will go to at least one track event at Mid-Ohio, so the clutch must be good for racing too. Anyone have a better reccomendation for a clutch?(keep the total for cluch and pressure plate under $300)

4 puck is going a little extreme, i recommend a 6 puck sprung hub. the engagement is not harsh, pushing in the clutch feels stock. and it hold up to an eagle talon and honda civic, both in the mid 11 and low 12 sec range. (the civic 11.7)

Thanks a lot iggy, I ordered me clutch from them, not a bad price at all. $330 for a dual friction 6puck w/sprung hub, race pressure plate and all bearings. I'll let you know how it works when I get everything put back together.
