Hi lads, seen a post a while back with regards to the RTS and didn't look like anyone had tried one. 

 

I currently have the Sachs sintered and was looking for anyone with first hand knowledge if these two are any friendlier? Thinking of a swap.

 

Does the helix judder or squeal and is it as on off as the Sachs?

 

Anyone with first hand knowledge of both?

 

Cheers

I have the RTS, OEM peddle feel, I think it’s great. I had the Sachs organic previously which was also Okay although like the RTS more.

Cheers mate. How is the bite? On/off or again more like OEM.

Sintered is so snatchy!

I had a sachs organic in my MQB Cupra and now have the RTS in my R. For daily use the RTS is much better with an OEM pedal feel. The Sachs was just that bit heavier and hardwork if you're in stop start traffic. 

 

The RTS judders in first gear to begin with but after a few hundred miles it seems to have bedded in nicely.

Perfect. Just what I wanted to hear mate!

 

Pretty sure mine juddered at first, once bedded in it's been fine.

Just like OEM, although a little juddery  in first. Easy enough to live with though.

      Hi everyone,
       
      I'm having an issue and it's not doing my blood pressure any good!
      I've got a mk7 R on 51k miles. 
       
      It's been tuned by MRC, stage 1 high torque. 
      The gearbox has an issue. In drive (not sport/race or manual) the gears are rough. On the upshifts, they're smooth if gentle acceleration however if i try to accelerate hard the gears slam into gear.
      On the downshifts, it's uncomfortable, i feel every gear change. It's worse in the lower gears but is there with all of them.
      If i'm in race or manual mode, generally i don't feel any issues, but i do feel it occasionally. 
       
      I took it back to MRC, hoping it was the gearbox TCU, however they put the car back to standard and it's still doing it, which means there's an underlying issue.
      Doug at MRC spent a long time doing the gearbox adaptations which hasn't made it any better. 
      I asked Doug why it would be mainly fine in manual or sport and he's said there's more revs, more power going through etc with more clamping pressure etc... 
      I have to say, i'm impressed by Doug and his team, all looks very professional. 
       
      They're saying it's going to be either the clutch packs needs replacing or the mechatronics unit. 
      However, i'm 22, and spent years saving for my R, as it was my dream, so i haven't the money to start replacing everything in the hope it fixes it. I'm absolutely gutted at this point, genuinely.
       
      MRC, and myself, are leading more towards the clutch pack needing replacement, but i'm wondering if any of you could guide me in the right direction?
      I'd really appreciate any advice.

      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,

      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!

      Greetings,
      a friend of mine want me to help him replace his clutch. I've done 2 clutch job in the past , one on a b5 a4 and one on a Honda civic.
      For the audi, i gattered a lot of documentation, Watch videos and turned out to be relatively easy.
       
      So, i've been searching for DIY for the mk6 R because i heard we'd have to unbolt the subframe so i just wanted to make sure i follow so simple guideline before attempting the job.
       
      Is there any diy, pictures, video for this kind of job on the 6 R ?
      Thank you
