    hi, could anyone tell me which clutch and flywheel they are using with tuned s3's?
    In the past i've had a spec stage 3 clutch and it was horrible (juddered badly from day 1 and too keen). just wanting to know the make, price and what its like to live with.
    thanks

    sachs organic. A bit grabby and smelly for the first 500 miles, then it becomes like a normal clutch only without slip.
    I use stock flywheel.

    Helix clutch/flywheel. Drives like standard, but sharper. Think it was about £1200 fitted at Awesome.

    Oh, and welcome to the site ;)

    I agree, mine was very smelly for the first couple of thousand miles - now gone though. Mine is only 261bhp/311lb/ft. I thought the organic was only good for 330lb/ft which you will probably exceed if you have a big turbo conversion??
