Product description

Chatter is for cell phones, not clutches. That’s what makes the South Bend Stage 2 Daily Clutch and Flywheel Kit the perfect everyday performance upgrade for your Volkswagen GTI, Golf, Jetta or GLI, or some Audi A3 models: It’s quiet at idle – even with your foot off the clutch pedal. Windows up or down, air conditioning on or off, the South Bend clutch is quietly reliable, holding up under the strains of enthusiast driving and HP mods. USP Motorsports knows that as a VW owner, you’d rather hear your new exhaust note than idle chatter, making this your ideal clutch kit.

What is a stage 2 clutch? You need only read South Bend clutch reviews to know this package is, above all, a high performance upgrade. Although the South Bend Stage 2 can handle occasional moderate racing, this is not a heavy-footed, leg-straining Stage 3 racing clutch. It’s a 2 stage clutch engineered for enthusiastic street use in your Volkswagen or Audi.

The operation is light and stress-free, with precise engagement that lacks unnecessary drama – while harnessing the excitement of the extra horsepower and torque you’ve wrung from your VW through modifications. Expect more feel from your clutch and less rev hang for seamless downshifts.

With the South Bend Stage 2 Daily, the rhythmic tapping at idle that accompanied earlier versions is gone. This South Bend Stage 2 Daily Clutch and DXD Flywheel Kit doesn’t chatter about its capabilities the way earlier versions did. It’s a stronger, more durable, cooler-running clutch without the unwanted sounds. Clutch chatter was never a defect, of course; it was simply an audible side effect of replacing a stock flywheel with a high-performance single-mass flywheel. Now you get the benefits, not the noise.

“Flywheel and clutch kit” hardly describes what this clutch for VW Golf and Audi provides: The South Bend 22-pound single-mass flywheel made by DXD does not diminish starting performance. The heavy-duty pressure plate tolerates higher clamp pressure but doesn’t require uncomfortably heavy pedal pressure. The clutch disc’s organic material has high metal content to elevate the burst point to 12,000 RPMs and to discourage glazing and scoring, adding up to superior durability.

You also receive a throw out bearing, pressure plate bolts, flywheel bolts and a flywheel alignment tool that ensures proper installation, whether by you and your bros or a professional.

Love the clutch so far. Used great products to put the kit together. Easy installation. Some clutch chatter but nothing overwhelming. Holds the power really well for now! Great product! Have already referred to friends.

So far so good! Just got the clutch past break in. Even just at 500 miles this set up is far superior to the factory set up. Pedal feel, engagement, rolling starts from stop lights are easier (even with the lighter flywheel), everything about it is just better. So far I have a UM stage I tune, Autotech HPFP, cat delete and some other minor driveline mods and this clutch holds up no problem.

Advantages: Engagement, pedal feel, dead starts, increased rev-matching capability, speed shifts

Disadvantages: Lighter wallet, however you are getting a GREAT clutch
