    Mapped S3 clutch slip??

    Hey

    Just wandering if anyone else has experienced this..

    Out tonight driving and the clutch is slipping fairly badly.. Not in normal driving just when you get onto the power hard

    Pretty annoying, think I may have to go with a stronger clutch

    I Had the same problem with previous REVO mapped MK5 Gti.

    Turned out to be a knackered Dual mass flywheel. Not sure if the S3 has a similar DMF set up but I would guess this might be the problem not the clutch.
    The plus point is that the DMF is covered under warranty but the clutch isnt.
    My DMF was changed by VW under warranty and a new clutch was also fitted FOC as it had suffered `consequential damage` due the DMF failure. The damper in between the 2 main sections of the DMF had actually collapsed so the flywheel was not getting a square contact with the clutch and therefore slipping just like a worn clutch would do. Obviously 2 different issues but both with the same symptoms.

    Hopefully its your DMF and AUDI will pick up the bill.
    I would be amazed if the std clutch wasnt strong enough to cope with the relatively modest bhp/torque figures you get from a remap.


    Good luck

    Paul

    Did not go in for a chipped windscreen and end up getting a new DMF, clutch and rear diff?

    Yep, REVO maps are quite savage especially if you run the boost a little higher than default (level 7 is best IMO). But Jeez are they fun !! real old school thump in the back boost delivery, none of this linear nonsense..!!

    Hey

    The car has done around 15k miles since the re-map.. thats not the only mods the car has thought..

    Looking into a Sachs racing clutch, should be a bit better

    Yeah thats the one I have been looking at.. Its rated to 350ft/lbs so should do the job pretty well I think.

    Depends if im keeping the S3 or not really..

    I'm kinda hoping that your a bit partial to drag racing and have been giving it a bit of a spanking!?


    Would the uprated clutch affect warranty? I presume it does?..
