      Iím kinda an old soul when it comes to the golf. That being said Iím use to the Sachs & clutch masters being the go to clutches. Been out of the game so Iím trying to find the best set up for my Ď18 golf r. Iím really not going to be happy if I get clutch chatter, itís an issue I had on my 1.8t and it drove me nuts.

      Apr recommended hs tunings rsr hybrid kit. It uses the stock flywheel and I figured thatís kinda odd with a 450+ hp car. (Maybe Iím wrong)

      Buddy of mine says southbend is great and I was looking into the twin disc DKM.

      Point me in the right directions

      Thanks

      A lot of the clutches that can hold those kind of HP/TQ numbers are going to chatter just a little bit. DKM makes a solid clutch and so does Southbend. Have you looked into ACT at all?
