One of the weakest points on the 2015+ MQB platform is the OEM clutch and dual mass flywheel. These components fail quickly on vehicles with even modest engine modifications. Using a single mass flywheel and upgraded pressure plate and friction plate reduces rotational mass and has significantly more torque capacity that the weak OEM components.
This is a "build to order" clutch kit intended for cars with HP modifications exceeding the stage 3 parameters. The Race Engineered pressure plate is modified for maximum plate load. The discs are puck design with sprung and un-sprung options. Friction material options include Sintered Iron and Graphite Impregnated Ceramic. Engagement characteristics can be abrupt. Hydraulic systems may need enhancing for proper clutch separation. Single mass steel SFI approved flywheels are required for safety. Torque ratings are calculated at time of ordering.
Race Engineered Pressure Plates (SS) used in Stage 4 clutch kits: These performance clutches deliver more transmittable torque and stability, longer life and superior thermal resistance. They also deliver noticeably better dynamics through higher clamp load when driving the vehicle to its limits.
