Sachs Sintered Clutch Upgrade – VW Golf Mk6 GTI
Torque Rating: 480lb-ft
Sintered Paddle Friction Plate:
The SACHS Performance Sintered Paddle Friction option contains a Multi-Puck Sintered Cera-metallic Friction Disc.
Sintered Paddle friction plates have a much higher friction co-efficient than their Organic counterparts. This allows for higher transmittable torque however they are usually not recommended for day to day use.
Higher clamping pressure is provided by the uprated pressure plate, which when combined with the Sintered Paddle Friction plate; this clutch kit is an ideal upgrade for highly tuned engines where much higher torque handling of the clutch is required.
Please note: Due to Reinforced materials and components the pedal force can increase and the modulation range reduced giving an “on-off” feel to the clutch.
These are a motorsport style of clutch, so you do need to expect some level of compromise with judder on take-off and can produce additional noises from the clutch and transmission.
*Changing the release bearing at the same time as fitting this clutch kit.
