Sachs clutch

Discussion in 'A3/S3 Forum (8L Chassis)' started by imported_velcrobix, Feb 27, 2006.

  1. I've just ordered one of these from AMD. Just wondered if anyone else is using one and what they think of it. I didn't want one that was going to be too harsh so i thought this may be a good comprimise.

    Out of interest, what is the standard clutch rated up to? My S3 has 310lb/ft courtesy of an MTM remap.

    They start to die around 300+lb/t but then again depends how you drive ,i killed mine with 340lb/t with some aggresive starts at pod.
     
  9. My clutch has been slipping on and off for over 12 months, and it now feels really 'spongy' so it going to be a huge improvment in comparison.
