Clutch for track (eventual race) car

Postby KarlG » Mon May 23, 2016 9:40 pm

Hi all,
Apologies, I know this has been asked a million times on here, but I just wondered what latest thinking on the best clutch for a dedicated track puma was.
Currently standard car as only bought last week, but lots planned for the future, however clutch needs doing first.
From searching through the forum there seems to be three main options (maybe four)
ST150
Focus 1.8
Uprated paddle clutch
Or new oem/standard luk or similar
Any advice would be greatly appreciated
Thanks,
Karl

I use the reinforced one from Helix for about 8 years now. This car is used only on track. I ' ve got a spare one but never have to use it :wink:

I think it 's all about the driver and how he drives!

The Helix is amazing.. FRP453 still has it's Helix in ... Organic with uprated cover...

Don't like the feel of the paddle clutch personally...

And certainly not the shitty focus one which has the softest feel ever... :lol:

How much torque are you planning? I've had no problems with my standard ST150 clutch in my racecar for the last few years.

Love the 1.8 focus one myself, doesn't kill your left foot and strong as an ox
