Which distributor?

So my distributor is in pretty sad shape. I want to replace it with a whole unit so it will not be of concern later on. Looking at Clark's rebuilt unit and at Seth Emerson's unit. Price is close and not a factor here. For a weekend driven car that will never be 100% stock, is Seth's just overkill? Or do I just stick with a stock setup.

Seth's is not overkill. It is more a matter of reliability and no more maintenance there. You have lots of options. Get a used one, have yours rebuilt, you fix what it needs, or... (I have Seth's on 1 of my rides, Pertronix on another, points in a 3rd).

I also have one of Seth's distributors in my EM 110. No muss, no fuss.
