    what clutch??

    hi all,

    Iam going to get my car remapped soon and its going to be around 270bhp i think.
    just wondered if u guys would be able to reccommend a decent clutch?
    also is it worth going for a lightened fly wheel at the same time?
    i have also been concidering getting a Quaife ATB diff, these any good??

    thanks for any help

    im running 280bhp/320ft.lbs and clutch fine now, did slip quite badly, but gave it a hundred odd miles of careful driving and now is fine, can boot it no probs.
    dont spend cash unless u need too

    its torque that kills clutch box etc not the bhp, if it starts 2 slip drive carefully, ie dont boot it and allow clutch 2 rebed

    sounds good to me, think i might leave it standard then and c how it goes.

    what about the ATB quaife idea??

    to fit a Diff in the F23 the box has to come out an be taken apart but its worth doing
    also on the Clutch i can get a nice setup that will take 350bhp with no problems

    if fitting a ATB LSD its worth doing a clutch why the box is out

    Helix organic stage 2 clutch, slightly harder than standard, but good for at least 350bhp, mine is close to 300bhp and never had an issue with it.
