choosing the right clutch

so @ first my plans werre to get a sprung hub 6 puck design, but now im having mixed feeling after knowing a heavier clutch is ganna suck to drive in town.
now i have seemingly high hp goals aroud 350ft/lb/tq. i want it to be streetable without having to have a leg twice the size as the other.
kirk @ horsepowerfreaks was trying to talk me into a twin disk clutch, but i know they chatter and ware down pretty fast. and i know the sprung hub is just ehh. and a friend was tellin me to look into ceramic discs with a heavy duty pressure plate combo, but im thinkin that migh ware down just as fast.
im stuck trying to decide, because i know in the future im ganna have to replace it and want to be as affordable as possible the next time around. ,,
need help
