Do they have a Stage 2 Endurance ??????
yes i think that the option for me then.
okay nice, i have never read about any one with the 6speed gearbox with a solid/single mass flywheel that dont have some kind of chatter/noise from the gearbox.
you most be lucky mate. you sure its a SMF? or so you have other mods to get the chatter away?
i read that some have more or less chatter but all i have read about no one had zero chatter/noise, now that is what im looking for.
most of the 5speed cars dont get much chatter.
yes, on some web pages i see you can get stage 2 and stage 3 as either daily, endurance or drag.
I would think the endurance one would be the choice to go with about the same clutch resistance and higher TQ and HP longer life as well
typically any ways would have to see the rating differences to justify the cost.
Allan, What clutch did you go for in the end, mine started slipping bad tonight, need to order a new one ASAP.In the same both as you, want something uprated, don't want chatter and close to stock feel, oh and doesn't cost a trillion bucks, LOL, i don't ask for much do i, Ha ha.
i have ordered a new DMF and a south bend stage 3 daily (DMF version), the flywheel has arrived from the UK, now im just waiting for the clutch kit from the US.
You got a link buddy?

Personally I would avoid SB clutches, I had one replaced under warranty and I had to replace nearly everything on the clutch system to satisfy SB, I did new lines, NLS shims, new master and slave and only then did they replace the kit, 7k miles later it went again so I cannot recommend them at all.. currently its not worth the price of the scrap metal.
Ps, I wasn't doing crazy launches or anything, the OFE stage 2 I had was rated to 450lb, at the time car was doing about 330lb/ft, go figure.
Just check out vwvortex for SB problems, they run through slave cylinders on the 02m like there going out of fashion.
Thanks for the advice
What clutch you running and you still DMF or SMF?
I'm sure I've read somewhere that fitting a fluidampr will help reduce the chatter ?
I'm looking through options at the minute for smf and a clutch capable of 400 bhp, the let's have some more recommendations from the big power boys !
My turbo is rated for 620 HP
Running a South Bend DXD Stage 2 endurance / Single lite steel flywheel has been in my car and
this car is my Daily Driver for 4 + years now not one problem
any clutch by any mfg. (or any part for that matter) has a certain % of going bad it is what the
Company does for you when that happens... The gentleman that is on here I may have even sold
that SB to him strange case but believe SB/Me did a good job trying to do the right thing as I sell
other clutch lines as well and know none of the other ones would have done what SB did and
that is why I push SB ..........
Clutchmaster / Spec.........
Yes you did sell me the clutch through here!
SB did replace the clutch but only after blaming everything else, and now the second one lasted 7k, everybody knows the SB problems, just trying to save these guys from having their cars off the road for endless weeks.
The forums speak for themselves., Check vwvortex and the likes for a good picture, SB even recommend a 3rd party fix sometimes by way of the NLS shim, speaks volumes really.
In addition, you guys should buy local if possible, the hassle with taking off a clutch and sending it to the US is a total pain, in addition you help support local business and keep some money in the country, go through your local or closest reseller.
I do agree with much easier to deal with if local as with anything there can be a defect and keeping money I ones own area does help out......
All I am saying is my experience with South Bend has been excellent ........out of all my SBC sold RSmith has been the only problem and SBC did more then other clutch Companies would have done.........shim's is very common to have to use for any clutch Company.... the ones we sell have all suggested shims........
Hope nobody gets any defect in/on any product.........
Below may be a good source.......
What clutch are you running now and you still using dmf?
i did fit new DMF and a south bend stage 3 daily (DMF version) with new slave cyl., and since then i had never had any problems.
Is that a luk dmf? Am a stage 2 Cupra r running about 280bhp and the clutch slips when goin hard
