I need a clutch.

It's come to the point where my clutch now slips under any positive manifold pressure. It's pretty bad. We're talking tach skipping up 2k rpms.

I've done searches but i'm still a bit confused at the majority of all this nonsense. And I know you guys have seen a million billion clutch topics.

Let's get down to it. I'm broke.

Right now making a weinerish 300/300 whp wtq but we've all got plans for future power. So i'm looking for a clutch that could hold up to say 380-400whp/tq

Nothing too crazy fancy. Nothing too crazy expensive. Daily Driven.

I'm learning. What materials are availible. Advantages and disadvantages of different materials. "Pucks" and all that nonsense. I just need a good post by soemone to help me on this one. I'm calling Bimmerworld tomorrow. I need this ordered yesterday.

Thanks for the help.

Yeah it dyno'd right at 300/300. Good AFR's too so i was happy.


LTW flywheels are not ideal for turbo vehicles because they reduce the amount of load, thus increasing spool time.

Word. The quick revs of a ltw flywheel are sweet and it's only a pain if you've driven a LTW flywheel car once. Onc eyou're used to it you have no problems. Just not ideal for turbo cars.

My buddy has a 8 lb flywheel in her e46 328 and she's great at driving it. Hand her boyfriend the keys and he'll struggle for a minute or so. It's just what you're used to.

No not yet.

I contacted Bimmerworld and they've got a Stage III Kevlar for me and a new flywheel. Fuck OEM Dual mass no resurfaceable bullshit.

Also considering a SPEC Stage III. A bit cheaper.

Lightweight flywheel isn't exactly "ideal" for a turbo car. Great for N/A and s/c.

My choices have been trimmed down to a Clutchmasters Stage III Kevlar + new flywheel, all purchased from Bimmerworld. Or a Sachs Stage III. The Sachs is definetely cheaper but im big on company loyalty and Bimmerwolrd is amazing.
