Southbend Stage 3 Drag Clutch and Flywheel Kit - 2011-2014 VW Mk6 Golf, Jetta, Sportwagen 2.0 TDI
The DXD Racing Stage 3 Drag 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 drag racing.

South Bend Clutch - Drag
This clutch package is built to handle heavily modified cars and designed to function according to the specific needs of the 1/4 and 1/8th mile track. The pressure plate for this kit is SFI approved Race Cover engineered to disengage with less pedal travel shortening the shift time. Discs are a puck design, which reduces rotational mass and are assembled with all high carbon component pieces for maximum strength. The friction material used is Graphite impregnated Ceramic perfectly suited for drag racing because of its maximum friction co-efficient, rapid heat dissipation and abrupt engagement characteristics.
We do not recommend using the Endurance Clutch for daily driving as it is designed specifically for drag racing. This clutch will not slip off of the line and the power transfer will be very abrupt.
