Hi as you can see from my sig my clutch is starting to give way, and is slipping under load from low-ish revs ie in the meat of the torque curve. Been looking at prices and what needs changing, for the Sachs uprated Organic clutch and pressure plate & OEM DMF fitted looks like it will be over £1400 I think, this can handle around 400 lb fts I think. However for slightly less I've been considering a Southbend Performance clutch Stage 2: Daily rated at 450 lb ft torque and it comes with a lightened SMF. I know the SMF will be noiser but this will be much more durable then a DMF and the reduced weight will only help acceleration. I may plan on going BT in the future so this would be more then enough. http://www.jbsautodesigns.co.uk/product/3707/20-tsi-performance-clutch-stage-2-daily-with-smf £902 incl VAT from JBS - I have done one 1/4 mile, plan to do more in the future and do some hard road driving too now and then so this looks like it will do the job. I will keep the car atleast a year i think so no point in fitting a standard item back on. There is also a company in Leeds called CG-Motorsports but their fast road clutches are only claimed to cope with 25% more torque, which is less then what I am now, they do Paddle clutches also but I don't want an On-Off switch for a clutch . The thing that makes me consider them is even for a bespoke clutch and SMF or SMF it would be much cheaper- for the 1.8T fast road clutch & SMF is only £345.00 and they do make clutches for drag racing so they dont seem that *****. Thoughts?
