Southbend DXD Racing Clutch - Stage 2 'Drag' - Audi B8 A4, A5 2.0T Quattro Clutch Kit
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. Each configuration includes all of the benefits of a DXD Racing Stage 1 Clutch Upgrade but also includes additional benefits specific to each.
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. This clutch system maintains a stock feel while offering strength and durability.
Recommended usage is drag racing or extremely hard driving, we do not recommend using this clutch for daily use.

You will need to purchase a flywheel to use with this clutch. This Southbend clutch can be used with either a factory dual mass flywheel or a Southbend single mass flywheel (SBCF70614). Both flywheels are available as an option above. Please note that a single mass flywheel can cause some slight noise at idle, this is completely normal and does not harm anything.
We do not recommend re-using the factory dual mass flywheel since the clutch mating surface cannot be resurfaced.
