clutch is going out

Well my clutch works fine when daily driving but slips a tad bit when you shift at a high rpm. Looking to get a clutch that is daily drivable but won't get tore up at the track. Thinking of getting a 6 puck sprung clutch but am on a budget so I'm just wondering what brand makes a good clutch for a good price for our cars. Also will prob get a lightweight flywheel at the same time, does anyone have advice on them as well?

Edit- the car is a 93 si

so you havent searched much if you think that kind of clutch is daily drivable...

I got Competition Clutch's set

Stage 1.5 clutch #8014-1500
Lightweight Steel Flywheel (~12-13 lbs/5,4-6kg) #2-701-ST

total 450$

The manufacturer advertises those like this:

"The ST flywheel is recommended for naturally aspirated and/or street driven applications.
Preserves low end torque and drive ability
One piece ring gear for high durability
Well suited for Stage 1 and Stage 2 clutch kit applications"

"The Competition Clutch Stage 1.5 is an economical solution for moderately modified cars or simply aggressive individuals with stock power.
Offers +40-50% of torque capacity and maintains stock pedal feel."

and they work just like they promised! pretty good for dd use

Re: clutch is going out

Has anyone used clutchs or flywheels from eClutchmasters from ebay? They seem to talk like they make a quality product but also seem like they could be a bad fail. They make both a clutch and flywheel for our cars and they are reasonably priced but I don't want to wast my money on a crappy clutch.

Re: clutch is going out

Was refering to eClutchmasters products, I'm interested in buying from them but don't want to waste my money if they arnt good quality.

Notice I said eClutchmasters not clutchmasters. It seems to be an ebay brand knockoff but I have herd of people having luck witch cheep clutchs when not puting out a lot of power.

Re: clutch is going out

Ebay makes clutches too? Wow.... knew they made headers but...
They're almost as bad @$s as costco and amazon.

Re: clutch is going out

From personal experience, I wouldn't use eBay for any parts that your car relies on to run well. That's just me though.
