New product - LOBA-Sachs Stage 2 & 3 Single-Mass Clutch Kits (1.8/2.0 TFSI/TSI)

LOBA-Sachs Stage 2 upgrade clutch kit 2.0 / 1.8 TFSI / TSI single disc 550Nm

Idea direct replacement for those that wish to replace the OE dual mass flywheel but still have a clutch with a OE feel but still get a nice upgrade over stock.

Using a reinforced Sachs performance clutch cover has fundamental advantages against an OE clutch cover, such as a much higher transmittable torque and higher resistance against thrust, yet this kit retains a very OE feel due to a the use of a Sachs performance organic friction plate.

A lot has been made of the performance advantage of a LOBA billet flywheel. The fact that the flywheel provides 50% of the friction surface to which the disc mates and consequently half of the holding power. For maximum clutch performance, the billet material is carefully chosen, that surface must have maximum compatibility, flat and true with the disc friction material for smooth engagement and to take advantage of the increased coefficient of friction of a high performance clutch disc. Without this compatibility, the power or torque capacity of the entire clutch system is seriously compromised. Also must be noted LOBA billet flywheels are balanced to far higher precision than stock and also much lighter.

There are completely different requirements for a clutch in motorsports. Special attention is paid to lightweight and mass moment of inertia (MMI) in order to achieve the maximum acceleration of the engine as well as shorter shifting times and sportier gearshifts. Thanks to a smaller clutch diameter and exclusive materials a significant reduction of weight and MMI is achieved in this kit. A lightweight flywheel will decrease parasitic loss at a constant rate, improving a vehicle's horsepower and torque output (measured after the flywheel) throughout it's entire rev range. LOBA single mass clutch kits is also not as noisy as our competitors offerings.

This makes it extremely useful for tuned cars and suits cars with modified turbocharger, and for vehicles that are often driven hard. Complete assembled kit weight is 13.6 kg

Although this clutch kit is rated at 550Nm, this is conservative. We have cars runinng up to 700Nm on this set up.

The LOBA-Sachs sports clutch kit include

Sachs Performance clutch cover
Sachs Performance clutch disc organic
LOBA Billet lightened & balanced single-mass flywheel made of special chromoly steel (6.7 kg)
clutch cover screws
Torque rating 550 nm / 405 lbft

Suits engine codes CDAA, CAWB, CCTA, CCZA, CCZB, CBFA

(please take note, when converting from the original dual mass flywheel to a single mass performance alternative, some vibration often termed as “chatter” can be felt at low RPM also at idle in neutral)
