Just seen this on www.autoinstruct.com.au has anyone done this?
“Starting Vibration Reduction
In wheel slip scenarios, where wheel hop is typically induced, this tweak will stop the intervention of the braking system, allowing you to continue spinning the wheels. Assist with launching the vehicle, and stops the car from ‘bogging down’.”
I have a manual R and when if I hold the revs and then dump the clutch it get bogged down for just a second and then it’s off, I’m interested to see if this could help with it at all.
So as you’re all probably guessing the dreaded time has come and my clutch has slipped a couple of times🙄
i am am running a JB4 on map 6 so that didn’t help, it slipped twice, the second time I had to confirm I wasn’t seeing things.
As as soon as I confirmed it I’ve set myself back onto Map 0 (stock form).
I need advice on what clutch to get, if I’m honest it’s a call for help as I can’t make my mind up because the Internet is so divided on opinions!
I’m stuck between Sachs organic or sintered; from what I’ve heard the organic is ideal, but after stage 1 it’s on it’s limit.
I keep convincing myself the sintered will be future proof as it does hold an impressive torque figure but I can’t decide!😅
And another question for all you mechanically minded people out the who have taken on this job we’re there any difficulties removing the gearbox? Or have you any links to guide me in the right direction.
thanks in advance,
Choosing engine modification components is relatively straight forward. Choosing new wheels is not!
I seem to have spent weeks looking at new wheels for my R, The real stumbling block is offset. I understand what it is, but would love to see comparison images of how they actually look on a vehicle (no spacers, just the wheel). With this in mind, could we start a thread where you post an image of your Mk7/7.5 R and comment the offset you have? If we can gather a few sample images in one place, this would be really informative and help people make the correct choice on which offset they would like to go for. Might be worth making it a sticky on the forum pages.
Thanks in advance,
Been pondering a clutch upgrade for some time now because I want to go to Stage 1 but been put off by the "judder" comments coming from some Sachs reviews.
Has anyone got the Helix Organic Clutch fitted? If so what it like as a daily driver?? I can only find 2 comments which were positive but not much else.
I understand DSG's are better for mapping but I really enjoy my manual therefore will be keeping for some years!
