Need a clutch

After a day at the track and trying to slip the clutch at 3000 rpms on launch with my new combination, my clutch decided to wave the white flag. I felt it give a little on the first pass and by the 3rd even after a cool down it was really slipping in 2nd and 3rd gear, and smelled really bad. I let her cool down and made the 3.5 hr ride home and the clutch slipped and smelt burnt much of the way.

Considering this is how I would like to launch the car what brand will hold type of abuse?

Centerforce twin disc, its more clutch than you need with your current mods so you can grow into it.
I'm making 713 rwhp, 17 track days, drag road course and auto-x. 18k on the clutch and its still awesome.

I have this clutch in my car too and couldn't agree more. It's an awesome clutch....even though my wife didn't drive my car home after I won Fastest Camaro at the East Coast Shootout.

Folks thank you for your input. Right now cost is an issues so while I would love to have a $2,500.00 clutch in my car, I am not sure I need it, nor can I really afford it. I'm not afraid of an old school style clutch nor am I afraid of my left leg getting larger than my right . I am narrowing it down to Centerforce and Ram at this point both suggestions of highly regarded shops.

Newmoon, take a look at this thread if you have time. We have been using the Mantic clutches for a while now with very good success on and off the track. You would do fine with the Mantic single.

I'm in similar situation. Do these work on stock fly wheel or do they need their own. Come with a pilot tool of TO bearing?

Comes with the flywheel and the pilot tool too. Slave cylinder and pilot bearing itself is the only additional pieces you would have to purchase if needed, but they usually are not needed on lower milage cars.

We have the StreetSlayer twin starting at almost half of that with flywheel,arp bolts,throwout bearing ready to install.I would like to mention this clutch is fully rebuildable down the road for about a third of that
