Sprung discs have a softer engagement.

It really depends on what kind of driving you want to do. Softer engagement will give you a more forgiving pedal feel. Rigid ones will give a faster and more positive feeling bite upon engagement.

For usual driving, a sprung clutch disc would be much better on you and your vehicle. The harsher engagement of the unsprung clutch discs puts more strain on all the transmission components from the input shaft right down the axles. A built tranny would be much better for handling this extra stress, but wouldn't be nessisary. It all comes down to how you want to drive it really. If you abuse it, you're gonna break a stock transmission regardless. The solid clutch plate just helps you do it faster.
