ceramic

I would go with ceramic. I belive ceramic will take more abuse.

Ceramic chews the hell out of a pressure plate and flywheel. Grabby when warm as well. Will hold more than a straight organic disc, though.

I'm thinking about trying a kevlar disc when mine goes. Takes the abuse and not eat up the PP and flywheel.

You cant go wrong with a South Bend Clutch, they will sell you what you need, take care of you, and back their products...I know several guys running Valairs that like them a lot, and pull with them, but I was always told, it only takes a little more to go first class..
