Sachs Performance Clutch & Single Mass Flywheel Kit - VW Mk7 GTI, GLI, Golf R, Golf Sportwagen 4Motion, Alltrack
Engineered and manufactured by the same experts that make the factory clutch already in your car, the Sachs performance clutch kit is a great choice for enthusiasts looking for the next upgrade over their original clutch. This kit replaces the factory dual-mass flywheel with a lightweight single-mass unit.
Each Sachs performance clutch kit features a new pressure plate designed specifically for your VW/Audi application. The pressure plate is reinforced to handle the extra torque produced by upgrading your engine.
At the center of the Sachs performance clutch kit is their organic clutch disc This disc provides quick, factory-like actuation, without the typical on-off feel of most aftermarket clutches. In addition, the thermal and wear resistance of this disc is significantly better than the factory unit, giving you years of reliable performance.
The weak two-mass flywheel has been replaced with a lightened single-mass steel flywheel. Your original throwout/clutch release bearing will still work with this kit.
Why use a single mass flywheel?
Light weight flywheels keep less inertia in storage but the lighter rotating mass provides significantly better engine response and acceleration.
To compensate for the lack of a dual mass flywheel and it's vibration damping, the SACHS Performance clutch kit contains a clutch disc with torsion springs that functions as a vibration damper between the engine and gearbox. Please note that due to the reduction of mass and a more rigid connection, a stronger transfer of transmission noise can occur.
Applications and typical usage:
We recommend this clutch kit for motorsports enthusiasts with stage 2 upgrades and related bolt-ons (intake, exhaust, intercooler, etc). Typical use includes spirited daily driving and the occasional track day. We do not recommend this clutch kit for track-day enthusiasts that will attend multiple track events throughout the year, or drag-racing enthusiasts.
