Default Critique my clutch thoughts

I read and read about all the clutch ideas. I have a 570hp supercharger on my 2005 M3. The stock clutch is starting to slip. I love how this car drives. Smooth easy and quiet.

This is why I don't think I want a dual disc. I read a bunch about the noise, idle issues, difficulty trailering and starting out on hills. So it is either use the stock dual mass flywheel and Sachs heavy duty https://www.turnermotorsport.com/p-1...-kit/undefined

or use a single mass flywheel that is heavy enough to give good idle with a single disc.

The FX is half the cost of the Sachs. I am thinking of going with the Ebay setup. Its Chrome molly so it will have a heavier flywheel to help idle, single clutch to reduce noise and is rated to higher HP.

Help me out here guys! Don't be bashful, tell me were my idea sucks.

And go..........

Rogue Engineering has some pretty good options and a nice write up here. I have the single mass steel fly wheel and the stage 1 clutch on my track car. Very happy with it.

Subscribed. To add something useful to the discussion, I had a SPEC Stage 3 clutch in my E36 M3 Turbo, but it wasn't exactly fun to drive. Getting out of first gear was kinda miserable. Not difficult, but definitely not easily slipped. Lots of shuddering, if that's the right word. Would not buy that again.
