    BKD clutch options

    Hi,

    finally time has come for a new clutch to join my a3 I have remapped to 175hp and looking for a clutch to keep up the torques. no point of putting a stock clutch again as it will wear fast with the extra torque i have now so what would be best for me to go for? please help

    I have a Helix fast road clutch on stg2 hybrid, never had an issue with it and wasn't as expensive as the darkside kit.
