RTS Performance Clutch – Twin-Friction Clutch Kit for Volkswagen Polo (6C) GTI 1.8TSI
RTS unique “Twin Friction” (drive plate) has been developed using a unique flywheel side friction material whilst adopting a segmented pressure plate face. The aramid friction exhibits 50% less wear than a conventional drive plate friction material.
This material also reduces the effects of fade. Fade is the decline in the clutch system’s ability to transmit torque as operating temperatures increases. These features in combination with the previously mentioned microstructure of spheroidal casting and ER2 technology allows the clutch kit to dissipate heat far more effectively, allowing the clutch to run cooler for longer.
RTS kit has been designed to transmit 60% more torque than the standard clutch kit and is suitable for everyday driving, fast road, and track/circuit racing whilst maintaining a user-friendly driving experience.
RTS – RTSTF-8008 has been designed and manufactured to significantly exceed the original clutch system whilst also maintaining OE pedal effort, thus delivering a torque capacity of 440 lbs/ft of torque.
We recommend fitting a new slave cylinder when changing the clutch.
