new clutch pics m104 c280

i just got my clutch back from our local clutch shop, had to upgrade to try and get some power down,
i got my standard pressure plate rebuilt with heavier springs which gives alot higher clamping pressure,
they custom built me a full face full kevlar clutch disc,
this is a solid disc, but with kevlar should give nice smooth engagement for street driving but also hold power,
and they ground my light weight solid flywheel for me also,
i had a weigh up also,
my old standard setup with dual mass flywheel weighed about 25-27kg, and this is about 17kg
here are the pics:










this is between the m104 2.8ltr and 717.4 manual 5 speed transmission

Nice! Turn out that there is also a shop which can modified clutch here in Indonesia. But the clutch pedal would be very firm and may not be comfortable for street driving. How does your clutch feel like?

back to the top,
and sorry oops2fast for the delayed response, the clutch feel is very close to stock feeling, and is still very easily street drivable, the only thing is it makes a slight wurl sound when engaging sometimes, not sure why

yea the flywheel was custom made for me by good friend/engineer.
try and source a second hand clutch and flywheel from a wrecker, and its a good place to start,
i had the flywheel built using my old flywheel for spec, and the clutch pressure plate i had rebuilt heavy duty,
and the clutch disc changed aswell.
but see if you can go for a sprung clutch center.
talk to a performance clutch shop for ideas

the whirring sound is likely from the finish on the flywheel.. It will likely dissipate with time.

Nice setup btw
