Default Need new clutch, please HELP!

Hello there, I have no idea what the stage thing means but I'm making about 250 crank HP and my ACT sports clutch is going out, could you please advice me to a better clutch because this one didn't seem to last long about 30k miles I don't know if that's normal or not. I looked at a stock replacement exedy clutch but I don't know if it'll last long with as much power as I have. I also looked at a stage one F1 racing clutch and a stage one XTD clutch, umm so if any of you nice folks had any good expeciences with any of those your input will help me greatly thanks!

250 crank is probably 200-210awhp which the OEM exedy will handle with ease. Should last well over 60-70k miles unless you are driving it hard with lots of launches with a lot of riding until fully engaged and hard shifting and riding the clutch between gears.

At that power level on an otherwise unmodified trans... Stick with a stock replacement as more agressive clutches are capable of putting a lot of added shock load on the gears without any real advantage. Engagement will be smoother, the car will be easier to drive, it'll have no problem holding that power level and you will be less likely to blow gear teeth all over the pavement... Everybody wins.

I'd also stick with OEM.

Normally I recommend the ACT Stage 1 as a standard stock replacement. I think it's one of the better feeling clutches on the market, and it doesn't put your stock transmission in TOO great of danger.
