This clutch was developed to fill a void in the market. Many Golf R owners wanted to increase the output of their car with ECU software, hybrid turbos, and the corresponding bolt on parts without having to deal with the compromises of a single-mass clutch kit. The clutch disc is a complete redesign from the original RSR clutch, utilizing an HD organic friction material on the flywheel side, and a segmented kevlar material on the pressure plate side. This provides a smooth but positive engagement. The lightweight, unsprung hub keeps the mass of the disc as low as possible. The clutch engages very close to the stock engagement point in the pedal travel. Although the RSR hybrid isn’t silent at idle without the clutch pedal depressed it’s notably more quiet than most single mass clutches, and it does not have any of the noise that single mass kits have during low rpm acceleration or high rpm deceleration. A great deal of time, effort, and testing went into this clutch. The result is a clutch that has stock like drivability with a significantly increased torque capacity! We recommend this clutch for Golf R owners that have increased power, but daily drive their cars.
We do not recommend using a dual mass style clutch for any car that is regularly used for drag racing. If your car is regularly used for drag racing, please look at our Southbend Drag or DKM Twin Disc options.
