gonna race g stock, what clutch to use..

I'm gonna try my hand at this solo thang come spring. I have a stock SVT, and I'm due for a clutch. Should I stay with the heavy dual mass flywheel, or should I upgrade to aftermarket like so many others? If I go aluminum, will I loose the stock rating and have to move up in class?
Thanks,

in stock, you are free to use any clutch, but you must use OEM flywheel. changing the flywheel puts you way up in SM or a prepared class (im not sure)

you must use a stock or stock replacement clutch...if you want to stay in GS. "HP/HD" clutches are not allowed...

The golden rule is: if it says you can you can, if it doesnt say you can...you cant.

It does not say that HP clutches are legal in stock. In fact, it says that they must be 'standard' by definition in rule 13.10L.
