    Sachs Stage 2 Sintered Metal F23 Clutch Kit

    Has anyone had the above clutch fitted?

    If so what's it like?
    I'm thinking of keeping th F23 and throwing one of these in along with a LSD and lightweight flywheel.

    I went for Courtenay flywheel and the helix organic clutch and uprated plate. If I did it again i'd probably stay with helix and get the paddle clutch, you can then drive it hard as you like on the clutch without the worry of it glazing

    I see that Regal do them, was looking at them the other day as mine slips occasionally. Either one of these, or an M32.

    I'm really stuck with clutch choice. I fitted a brand new GM clutch last year, and it has always slipped on load. Sometimes it's ok other times it slips. I've lived with it, but wanna change it now.
    Was thinking a Helix paddle but unsure. Have seen the 'organic' ones but am reluctant to remove the box again to fit a clutch ready to slip.

    There are loads of different clutches available, most are rated higher than the sach and helix.
    Mine is a Spec kevlar stage 2+ clutch kit, it feels exactly the same as a standard clutch but is rated to 380 lb/ft and comes with an uprated realease bearing, cost about £450 inc postage from the states. The next stage up from that is a 4 or 6 puk clutch rated to 500 lb/ft then a multi disk hyper clutch rated to nearly 1000 lb/ft lol.

    Before I bought the clutch I checked and people said it would be ok? However it really wasn't lol, Prob didn't help the fact that 2 weeks after I went to the 'ring lol
