I have a spec stage 2+ on my boosted RS F series that works very well. Mike has a spec on his BP+T G- series with LSD.

A clutch is not something that you will want to do too often. Have a TQ rating/goal and get a clutch rated above that goal. Keep in mind you get what you pay for and expect something in the $400+ range for a good setup.
