OMGHi2U clutch advice on WRX conversion

Iam using an 01 legacy trans and i need a new clutch, pp, tob, ect.
Who has had experience with the different high performance clutches?
I'm running 225-260hp (depending on the bolt ons) and i need something i can run at the races on friday night and drive to work the next day, also ive got to move back to alaska next summer.
Would a stock clutch hold up or should i go aftermarket?
Note; iam a horrable driver, thats why i work on cars and not race them professioanlly, so my clutch skills are that of a 2nd level magic user in a fist fight with a Mountain Giant. (hahaha, dnd reference).
Anyway, i could go 9.6 to 12lbs on a flywheel so i'll always be on boost.
any help or input would be appriciated.

Exedy stage 1 clutch and ACT 14lb flywheel run $550ish from import image (see vendor forum). Unless you want an über beefy and stiff clutch stage 1 should hold your power just fine. Organic clutches like the stage 1 are also easy to drive, like the stock one. Keep in mind that a 9lb flywheel will not make the stock ECU happy unless you are tuned.

+1…

No need to step away from an organic disc which will give you best drivability. Either Exedy street or stage-1 clutch would be my vote…
