Always start with the least expensive cure first. But it sounds like just clutch springs, to me. I always tried to get the heavy duty ones, though I'm not sure if that would be available now for an RC51. You can always disassemble and measure the clutch springs and the fiber plates thickness. Also, you can check the steel plates for burning etc.. Take a look at the factory service manual, of course.
Oh yeah, if you put new clutch plates in, the fibres, soak em' in motor oil first.
