The Southbend DXD Stage 2 Drag Clutch kit is the best drag racing clutch kit for the VW Mk8, Mk7, Mk7.5 GTI, Golf R, GLI, Sportwagen AWD and Alltrack.

The DXD Racing Stage 2 Clutch Upgrade is perfect for those who have modified their engines for more horsepower and torque, and are beginning to see the limitations in the stock units. Offered in specific configurations of Daily, Endurance or Drag, the DXD Stage 2 is perfectly matched to your driving style and your specific use. Each Stage 2 Clutch is engineered to specifically support engine modification with increased clamp load and different material choices across the individual Stage 2 configurations.

Drag Clutch Information

In no other form of racing are tenths and hundredths of a second more important nor is a vehicles driveline more abused in such a short period of time. It is with this understanding that DXD Racing has developed a line of clutches specific to the needs of this ever demanding sport. Pedal travel is reduced allowing for quicker launches off the tree and initial engagement is as rapid as possible getting all of the power to the ground instantaneously. Use of puck style discs and SFI approved Race Covers provide plenty of power handling capability and aids in the perfect pass everytime.

This Heavy Duty Pressure Plate has an increased clamp load with little or no increase in pedal pressure. The Organic disc material has a high metal content that increases the co-efficient of friction by two times over a stock lining and increases rotational strength up to a 12,000 RPM burst point. 

Flywheel Features

Flywheels manufactured by DXD are made from low carbon, hot rolled steel that is highly resistant to warping and perfectly suited for the friction materials mated to them. Single mount CNC machining guarantees precise tolerances and perfect balance exceeding O.E. specifications. Extensive field-testing has been done to determine the proper weight for each specific vehicle and to ensure smooth operation, safety and durability under extreme operating conditions. SFI Approved!

Why do we offer a rear main seal with this clutch kit?

The rear main seal on the VW TSI engines is prone to leaking. In our extensive experience working on these engines, it is simply a matter of when, not if it will happen. For this reason, we recommend replacing the seal when the transmission is already out of the car to install your new clutch.
