    It is a fantastic upgrade.

    300ft.lb clutch plate and a 50% reduced flywheel makes for an amazing clutch.

    Hotgolf's work is amazing on lightening the flywheel, I have no vibrations at all on idle.

    Way better drive isnt it!

    Yeah Dave, it's Martin (hotgolf) who did the work. Got an ABF flywheel for &#163;10 and Martin did his wonders on it. Top work and top guy

    the drive is just excellent, has so much changed and revs better. Biting point is spot on. No chatter/vibration at all.

    Rich and grathies: It's the Golf VR6 clutch kit with a Golf G60/ABF engine flywheel.

    I was unaware that the 1.8 8v G60 (PG/1H) flywheel was the same as the 2.0 16v (ABF) flywheel? I know the VR6 clutches are a cheap way to a strong clutch on the Golf

    I also had my flywheel lightened by Hotgolf. I sent him a brand new G60 flywheel. It came back nice and light approx 6kg.

    Top fella, quick turnaround.
