    Re: Clutch Replacement Questions

    It's a 2011 the clutch isn't giving me a issue as of yet but I'm not sure with 27k on the clock and the supercharger recently installed on the car how long the OEM clutch will last

    What year is your R8?

    Randy, thank you for purchasing our HT350 and our upgraded throw out bearing TOB300. Your clutch was shipped yesterday.

    Supercharger and bolt on TT will chew up the stock/oem clutch because oem clutch can't handle the extra hp properly. At higher rpm, a stock clutch slips so slightly and it will cause the stock clutch to glaze. We have seen many oem clutches on SC/TT cars that have a lot of clutch left but it's glazed. After that they don't shift right and they start slipping even though they have more than 50% clutch left.

    We had 2 bolt on TT customers, one had our Kevlar clutch and one had the oem clutch. They raced from 20-30 mph to 130-140 mph. Our Kevlar customer would be ahead by one car every time they shifted at 8k rpm. By the end of the race, our Kevlar customer was ahead by 6-8 cars. They both had the same exact TT and same hp. After the race, the stock clutch customer bought our HT300. After he broke in the HT300, they raced again and they were dead even. The right clutch makes difference. Our HT300 and HT350 stage 1 can handle up to 1,000 hp.

    Re: Clutch Replacement Questions

    What's the pricing like on the kevlar compared to OEM? I'm not having any issues with mine, but it'd be good to know my options for future reference.
