    I am in need of a new fly wheel very soon, so will most likely change the clutch while I'm there.

    Count me in!

    Ill let you know if i'm in on this after the car gets mapped stage 1 tomorrow. I have a 56 plate and its on 54k so its likely this may be the last straw for it.. I intend to go stage 2+ regardless so this needs to be done at some point anyway.

    Going for Revo from Streetwise Automotive in bristol. They have a good rep and its local which i think is important when tuning. Car needs suspension knock diagnosing and so long as its not the steering rack(££) ill be getting it mapped.

    From what ive read it seems most pre 58 cars needed a clutch after stage 1 and im not light on the clutch either.

    LOBA-Sachs VAG 2.0 TFSI / TDI Stage 2 upgrade clutch kit | 8P1 2.0 TDI | A3 | Audi | LOBA Motorsport GmbH

    I take it this is the kit we all have in mind? 550nm Sachs Organic plate and clutch cover, Loba SMF? OEM release bearing will be needed and to be purchased seperately?

    Think the guy at that gnj motorsport was offering a group buy for these if 10 names could be put down... I'm not interested in the SMF tho, just the clutch, so he prob wouldnt go for that with me

    No harm in asking as you may not be the only one.. Im still on the fence about the SMF as well. First thing to do is find someone who has one fitted and see what the noise/vibration is like before i part with any money.

    Myself and Graeme have been in discussion this afternoon and we shall get back to you with the decision on prices etc etc for the Loba/Sachs clutch group buy. Stay tuned folks!!!!

    S3_Mat..........have a look over on the S/RS Facebook forum (if you have it) as there are about half a dozen guys that I have supplied the 600Nm clutch and SMF to. They all have first hand knowledge on noise generated by it.

    Another thing to be aware of Loba DO NOT supply the flywheel bolts so these will have to be acquired seperately. £2.76 + VAT from your local TPS outlet and you need 6. The old ones will be no use as they are stretch bolts so better to be on the safe side especaially when theyre only £20 all in.

    Can I ask.... I have a 2.0 tdi. Engine code bkd. My clutch and flywheel are on it's way out and my clutch pedal doesn't come up last inch, don't think it's the clutch it's self as it misses the bite, maybe the clutch release? I am going to be upgrading the power soon between 260 and 300 bhp. So I might aswell do the whole thing to start with... Would the s3 clutch fit? Help!

    Im after a BT later next year, but need to upgrade my slipping clutch in january/feb.

    Would the Loba stage 3 clutch be alright for me? im just finding out now so i can prepare for the insane bill incoming.

    And just a thought, what sort of power would i be looking at with a GT series 3071R?

    Will any potential group buy count for me if I only want the clutch and not the full kit? I still want to run the DMF... Have absolutely no plans on putting anymore power through that car?

    Guys this maybe funny to some of you but I've never come across changing a cluth before, nor flywheel or any such thing...

    So my question is how do you know if you need one?
    How do you truely check it yourself? Same for flywheel?

    Cheers

    You would start to experience clutch slip mate. When you try to accelerate the revs will rise but nothing really will happen until the clutch bites again. Usually happens on tuned cars as the standard clutch plates cannot handle the increase in torque so the plates slip. Thats why an uprated clutch is needed to handle the increase in torque.
