OK Folks - Here we go!

The SPEC clutch GB is a go. None of their distributors picked up the opportunity to handle the GB so we are working direct.

Pricing will work like this:
10 or more - 18% off SPEC's website pricing.
15 or more - 20% off SPEC's website pricing.

We have a few options to consider.

SPEC will include 4 options for people who want to keep their dual mass flywheel: <ul type="square"> [*]Stage 1 - High clamp pressure plate, woven organic disk, bearings and tool. [*]Stage 2 - High clamp pressure plate, Kevlar disc, bearings and tool.[*]Stage 3 - High clamp pressure plate, 6-wing Carbon - semi-metallic disc, bearings and tool. (Stage 3 with the DMF is really the Stage 4 description from SPEC's website)[*]Hybrid Stage 2-3 (Not listed on the SPEC website) as the name implies, one side of the clutch disc Kevlar, the other the carbon/semi-metallic compound for the holding power similar to the Stage 3/4 and smooth engagement of the stage 2. Pricing will be $15 more than the stage 3 price.[/list]SPEC will also include their various stage options for G60/VR6 clutches in the GB.

Please note that you will need to determine whether you have the LUK or Sachs clutch in your car in order to buy the right clutch. Check out the options and list pricing at SPEC's Website.

Submit questions to David Norton of SPEC at sales@specclutch.com.

Sign up in this thread so we can keep tabs on how many clutches we are buying.

So far, here's who's in: <ul type="square"> [*]MCA[*]chudzikb[*]Karmann-Diesel[*]mcmassage[*]Betzel[*]eicke[*]oldpoopie[*]AJS[*]FlyTDIGuy[*]faucho[*]Curious Chris[*]cdiamond[*]SLPRTDI[*]MI_Upsolute (2?!)[/list]That's 15 if everyone who expressed intrest (or seemed to be leaning heavily [img]/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] ) is in once we finalize the deal.

Keep 'em coming folks. [img]/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Hey, thanks a lot! Just when I thought I would pay off my credit cards, you go and find a way for me to spend some more. Just kidding. I don't think I can pass up this opportunity. Count me in for a Stage 2 or 2/3. How long do we have until they are ordered? I need some time to figure out how I'll tell the wife I'm spending more money. [img]/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif[/img]

Well, you make 4 (I'm in too - either a stg 3 or hybrid 2/3). When we hit 10 I'd think would be the time.

I wonder now long the DMF will last with the power we are are now putting down. My VR6 setup is slipping now? WE need the 240 DMF with the 6 speed to go along with it.

Perhaps looking to a stage 2 or 3 VR6 clutch?? The standard G60/VR6 swap people do uses a stock VR6 right?

I am in; if I can get enough discount I'll go stage II, otherwise stage I should hold me for a long time.

Seems a little pricey but for no chatter it's almost worth it. Right now my Diesel Geek package shows no signs of slipping @ 70K so it's extremely premature for me to buy one. Thanks for your efforts. When it comes time I will be looking them up!

I'm in. Not sure which version yet though. you may want to post a thread in the power enhancements section just to garner more interest. I know I forget to check the classifieds sometimes......

Please do talk it up! As the organizer I don't want to get my hand slapped for posting in the wrong section. [img]/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif[/img] [img]/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

I am tempted, but I have a few questions. If the stage 1 can hold 330 ft-lbs, why go higher? I don't know of any TDI engines that are putting out more than 300 or so.

Thanks,
Dave

Clutch envy?? [img]/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

I think that as you approach the rated torque capacity the durability and reliability goes down. Hence the desire to over-clutch the car if you are putting out a lot of torque.
