South Bend Stage 3 Endurance Clutch and Flywheel Kit - 2011-2014 VW Mk6 Golf, Jetta, Sportwagen 2.0 TDI
The DXD Racing Stage 3 Endurance Clutch Upgrade is perfect for those who have extensively modified their engines for more horsepower and torque, and have pushed far past the limitations in the stock clutch. Offered in specific configurations of Daily, Endurance or Drag, the DXD Stage 3 is perfectly matched to your driving style and your specific use. Each Stage 3 Clutch is engineered to specifically support engine modification with increased clamp load and different material choices across the individual Stage 3 configurations.
This Heavy Duty Pressure Plate has an increased clamp load with a pedal effort increase of roughly 20-25%. 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. This clutch system maintains a stock feel while offering strength and durability.
Recommended usage is track day or racing.

South Bend Clutch - Endurance
This kit uses the same Race Engineered SFI approved pressure plate as the Stage 3 Daily upgrade. The disc is designed for the special needs of a vehicle with circuit racing in mind. Kevlar friction material is used for its unique static to dynamic ratios of friction co-efficients at high energy levels. This translates to a perfect transition from one gear to the next. Discs are assembled with only performance components and equipped with torsion springs functioning as a damper between engine and gearbox.
We do not recommend using the Endurance Clutch for daily driving as it is designed for quick, high RPM gear changes and does not wear well under street use. Also, due to the use of less surface area on the clutch disc, this clutch does not slip well and instead provides a more abrupt power transfer.
