What clutch is out there that can handle around 400-450bhp same torque and is not a paddle clutch, one that doesn’t do your tits in driving.

Got a stage 4 competition clutch in, got a stage 2 competition clutch on shelf, not sure what that can take.

What options are out there

I've got a stage 2 CC clutch and its pretty heavy to use, especially in traffic. Its never slipped or missed a beat but I'm nowhere near 400bhp unfortunately
Probably not much help for you mate, lol!

I use a stage 3 CC and takes that torque okay .
stage 4 6puk sprung plate mixed with a lighter clamp rate cover makes versatile clutch .
Lot like the act pucks mixed with sensible clamp rate cover .
cc full face high brass material friction plates not really up to abuse of 450lbft

yeh plated front diffs are a total cock on a daily commute drive, torsen work real nice for tarmac use .
sprung 6puks not too bad with lighter cover but the segmented full disc type better again for road use .

Weird I've just put my forged lump in with stage 2 cc and honestly is lighter than my old Nismo....

I think stage 2 was 450 lb/ft 450hp (might be wrong)

realistically on a awd and R's potential power delivery it about 350 range to have some reliability/life .
The discontinued Helix HD done little over 400 but needed some care .
Way better off with sprung segmented ceramic and lighter clamp cover over full face and utra heavy covers . I can use segmented ceramic in city traffic not much bother .

I did use the helix organic with heavy duty cover, that was first clutch I had In it, last about 1000 mile before I started to slip
