    :thumbsup:Hi guys & girls, I need some help...I have recently purchased an s3 and proceeded with a stage 2 unitronic software mod.... when driving the car hard and launching hard it slips going nowhere slowly!!! I want to do a clutch on it, I need advise as to how to go about with it, what has worked for you? Would keeping the original flywheel and pressure plate work on the application if i simply add a 6 button copper clutch and increase the clamping force on the pressure plate? your opinions are extremely appreciated >>>THANKS

    Best clutches currently are either the Sachs if you want to stay with a DMF or the Loba for an SMF setup.

    Either way the flywheel should be changed along with the clutch.

    Paddle clutches are a pain for town use and frankly not a great idea especially with the ones above being available.

    Even mine isn't a paddle type.
