South Bend / DXD clutches for your B8 Audi S4/S5 3.0T. DXD clutches are developed and tested by DXD across many different friction products, pressure plate loads and flywheel designs with one goal in mind, to create clutch systems not only with perfect balance and symmetry but also to perfectly complement engine modifications without compromise in reliability, drivability or enjoyment.
The success of the development efforts has produced a performance clutch product line of the highest quality and performance available for Porsche, Audi and Volkswagen vehicles, DXD Racing clutches.
Each clutch system is specially matched to specific driving styles, uses and power levels to insure the needs of each client are accomplished. Often times, a compromise between drivability and pedal feel must be made to achieve power handling. If you are drag racing you will have different requirements for clutch operation than someone who wishes to participate in daily spirited driving or endurance racing.
Each DXD Racing clutch is offered in either a Daily, Endurance or Drag configuration to accomplish the power handling needed for your car.
NOTE: Photos used for reference only! Actual product may vary. *Only STAGE 3 clutch kits come with DXD Racing flywheel.
The Daily configuration is focused around an OEM pedal feel and initial engagement characteristics. This is the clutch that wont give you a significantly stronger left leg but will provide many thousands of miles of ease of use and operation with the ability to transfer different Stages of engine performance to the tires. The quick engagement of most aftermarket clutches or the "grab" is greatly reduced and in most cases completely eliminated to allow for smooth clutch release and easy initial acceleration.
Stage II Daily
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 daily, street and moderate race.
