    It is a fantastic upgrade.

    300ft.lb clutch plate and a 50% reduced flywheel makes for an amazing clutch.

    Hotgolf's work is amazing on lightening the flywheel, I have no vibrations at all on idle.

    Way better drive isnt it!

    Yeah Dave, it's Martin (hotgolf) who did the work. Got an ABF flywheel for £10 and Martin did his wonders on it. Top work and top guy :)

    the drive is just excellent, has so much changed and revs better. Biting point is spot on. No chatter/vibration at all.

    Rich and grathies: It's the Golf VR6 clutch kit with a Golf G60/ABF engine flywheel.

    I was unaware that the 1.8 8v G60 (PG/1H) flywheel was the same as the 2.0 16v (ABF) flywheel? I know the VR6 clutches are a cheap way to a strong clutch on the Golf

    I also had my flywheel lightened by Hotgolf. I sent him a brand new G60 flywheel. It came back nice and light approx 6kg.

    Top fella, quick turnaround.
