CLUTCH - for 2002-2003 VW Golf IV 1.8T, DRAG, Stg 3, 575 Ft-Lb; For 6SP, FOR SMF.
STAGE 3 DRAG:
Drag racing requires a Single Mass Steel Flywheel to be included with each kit when the original design is Dual Mass Flywheel. This clutch package is built to handle heavily modified cars and designed to function according to the specific needs of the 1/4 and 1/8 mile track. The pressure plate for this kit is SFI approved Race Cover engineered to disengage with less pedal travel shortening the shift time. Discs are a puck design, which reduces rotational mass and are assembled with all high carbon component pieces for maximum strength. The friction material used is Graphite impregnated Ceramic perfectly suited for drag racing because of its maximum friction co-efficient, rapid heat dissipation and abrupt engagement characteristics.
Recommended uses are drag, pulling, drifting.
Race Engineered Pressure Plates (SS) used in Stage 3 and 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.
