Most of my 1198 S riding is on the street, sometimes at a decent pace in the Hill Country. I plan to track my bike maybe 2 or 3 times a year. For my type of riding, I would imagine the Street clutch would be the better choice (of the two I'm looking at).

Street clutch: http://store.proitalia.com/968318aab.html
Race clutch: http://store.proitalia.com/968317aab.html

What are the actual differences between the two? Meaning, what makes one model a "street" and the other a "race." Is one going to cost me a lot more to maintain over time than the other?

For the type of riding I described above, is the street clutch truly good enough? Thanks for any help.

Most slippers are pretty similar in design (a la Bucci), Surflex being the exception. In the case of those two clutches, the difference is probably the clutch pack... with the race clutch likely having sintered plates, possibly steel vs. aluminum (harder on the basket). There's proably some other differences like the ramp angle too. In most cases "race" = high maintenance/more $$. If it were my money, I'd look into the Surflex or the Yoyodyne (I had a Yoyodyne, they're made by MPL). Also check out Motowheels, they have some good deals on slippers, too. In any case, get one with a hard-anidized (ergal) basket for longevity.
