    I recently had a GIAC map put on my car , a stage 2 equivalent intended for intake and TBE but for cars running standard HPFP.
    This new map had buckets more low end torque then my old map, which wasnt compatible with the intake as the car became weak at low revs.
    However this torque plus lot of more spirited driving recently, including a trip to crail, appears to be taking its toll on the clutch now. Its the original at 60k miles so its acceptible given the state of tune.
    So right now am mostly driving around with the standard map on to save the clutch as its fine normally, but when booting it in pump mode from the clutch slips several times up till 6k revs where it bites normally, in gears 3 and up .

    So in a couple of months I will looking to upgrade to the sachs organic clutch, I know several people on here have them and have sampled Davie's, so know how the pedal feels etc. ( and that it helped him get a 12.7 1/4 mile where standard clutch users cant seem to go below 13 at all)
    Just wondering where people have been sourcing them from, right now direct from Sachs seems the cheapest at about £510 ?
    Is it worth changing my flywheel as well though? There are no symptoms of flywheel probs just bit of slip under full throttle. When I changed the clutch on my old chipped Bora PD 130 the mechanic left the old DMF on and that car is still going strong at over 130k with 45k of those remapped!

    was at the scottish VAG meet yesterday pushed the car quite hard when driving against seeb ( haz1) and clutch held up if i kept the revs high.
    however ive come across an alternative to Sachs, there's a company called CG clutch specialists who make fast road clutches to custom drag racing ones has anyone here heard of anyone whose used them? there prices seem good and ive read good things onm other forums.

    bump...i also forgot to mention reverse gear can be very hard to engage ususally when I have the wheel on full lock for some reason and possibly when on a hill, i think the two problems could be related, any suggestions?
