The 034Motorsport LWFW for the B7 2.0T FSI is designed for enthusiasts looking to replace the failure-prone dual-mass flywheel with a lightweight unit for superior throttle response, and more precise clutch engagement. Accepts 240mm clutch kits for the Audi Coupe Quattro, which provide excellent holding power and driveability at an affordable price.
This package allows you to combine our 034Motorsport LWFW with your choice of Southbend Clutch kit.
Street Series Clutches
The HS and SS lines of Street Series clutches are intended for cars that are mainly driven on the street and occasionally at the track. All Street Series clutch kits are designed with full face clutch linings with a steel backing plate to give you a smoother engagement than any puck style clutch. Full face clutches are available with the same friction materials as the puck style clutches and will not sacrifice holding capacity.
SS vs. HD Kits
The SS series kits use the same friction materials on the disc but have an extreme clamp load pressure plate with a pedal effort increase up to 50%. The result is a more aggressive, stronger clutch that can handle serious performance upgrades.
HD Stage 1 - (KF771-HD) – Heavy Duty: The Stage 1 HD Heavy Duty kits contain a heavy duty pressure plate and organic disc. The linings on this disc are premium woven medium metal content lining. Also included in the kit are a throw-out bearing, and alignment tool. Torque Rating: 340 ft/lbs
HD Stage 2 - (KF771-HD-O) - Daily: The Stage 2 HD-O Organic kits contain a modified high performance pressure plate and heavy duty organic disc. The discs feature premium woven medium metal content organic linings. This friction material has a 9,000 RPM burst and dissipates heat quicker than any other organic lining on the market. Also included in the kit are a throw-out bearing, and alignment tool. Torque Rating: 395 ft/lbs
HD Stage 2 - (KF771-HD-OFE) - Endurance: The Stage 2 HD-OFE Organic/Feramic kits contain a modified high performance pressure plate and a high performance disc which combines the newest technology in friction materials. The discs feature a feramic full face lining on the flywheel side and a medium content organic lining on the pressure plate side. This combination runs cooler and significantly extends clutch life. The OFE series clutches not only engage very smooth, but have superior torque capacity to many puck-style kits on the market. This state of the art kit is what everybody wants when it comes to street performance without a sacrifice in drivability. Also included in the kit are a throw out bearing and alignment tool. Torque Rating: 475 ft/lbs
SS Stage 3 - (KF771-SS-O) - Daily: The Stage 3 SS-O Organic kits contain an extreme clamp load pressure plate and heavy duty organic disc. The discs feature premium woven medium metal content organic linings. This friction material has a 9,000 RPM burst and dissipates heat quicker than any other organic lining on the market. Also included in the kit are a throw-out bearing, and alignment tool. Torque Rating: 500 ft/lbs
SS Stage 3 - (KF771-SS-TZ) - Endurance: The Stage 3 SS-TZ Kevlar kits contain an extreme clamp load pressure plate and heavy duty kelvar disc. The metal backed kevlar linings provide a smooth engagement and have the torque capacity to handle high horse power, high revving engines. The disk is rated to 12,000rpm. These clutch kits maintain a stock feel at the pedal and have unmatched durability. Also included in the kit are a throw out bearing and alignment tool. Torque Rating: 525 ft/lbs

Note about break-in: This clutch uses a heavy duty clutch disc that performs well in very high torque use that produce extreme shear forces and heat. In order to gain this performance advantage, the disc friction material is much harder and more robust than the typical OEM organic disc. In addition, the disc backing plate, what the friction material is riveted to, is much more rigid. OEM clutch discs use a type of belleville spring washer to allow the disc to compress and be compliant when being clamped between the pressure plate and flywheel friction surfaces. These high performance clutches, however, use a solid steel backing plate which does not compress at all, this type of construction gives the disc its incredible strength, but means that the disc will require more break-in time than the compliant OEM counterpart. Keep in mind that this clutch may have trouble fully disengaging the first time it's used, and will require much more break-in than the OEM clutch to achieve normal use. Typically up to 1000 miles of use is normal to get full break-in. Be sure break-in use consists of generous stop and go as well as shifting, the slipping action as the clutch is engaged is what facilitates the break-in process. Ultimately the break-in process is one that allows the clutch disc to conform to the pressure plate and flywheel friction surfaces, once these surfaces conform to each other they perform very well and offer the maximum clutch holding power possible. Be patient with initial use and driving and you'll be rewarded with an incredible performing clutch system!
