Hello,

Sooo... Car is mk6 gti (ko4 with full bolt ons), made 350 hp and 500NM (~365lbs) and after 30 000 km. (~18000miles) the clutch started to slip.
I'm using this car as a daily, no granny driving style (few track days), how much miles is normal to burn this clutch down ? Any experience ?

You're slipping on your built RSR clutch? Did you replace the DMFW when installing new clutch components? I think I am slipping in the higher RPMS, also K04 full bolt ons. Its been about 30K miles since clutch install.

No, but it was in very good condition
Looks like I need new DMFW and new clutch disk...

***Accidentally posted in the general clutch discussion thread versus this one, but feel as though this should still be here.

Coming back to this thread to report that I am slipping with my built RSR clutch in the higher RPMs of 3rd, 4th, and 5th gear. I don't feel like it is no where near as bad as my stock clutch on stage 2 uni slipping, but its enough to notice in data logs. Its been about 30K miles since install, but I did at the time opt to not replace the DMFW. That would mean this DMFW has 96K miles on it. Honestly, I didn't think the car would make it to where it is today or that I would be pro-tuning for more power, but I am now. Would it be safe to assume that perhaps that DMFW is the weak link and that it may need replacing? Plenty of people have handled Stage 3 power with an RSR so I think if parts weren't old/failing that I should be fine with K04 + Meth. Any input or suggestions?

I noticed HS Tuning is offering another clutch kit with a hybrid clutch disk. Anybody by chance given that kit a try?

I have seen written that the diy kit does not have every part the hs tuning uses, which is what makes it the secret sauce. Idk how true this is but something that caught my eye.

Bumping this thread with some info. I just installed my "DIY RSR Clutch" and it seems great so far. Looking forward to giving it a workout after break in. A huge thanks to everyone who contributed to the wealth of knowledge in this thread.

I made a huge post in my build thread with pictures of the install, tips, resources, where I sourced my parts + prices, specialty tools, information on the iAbed billet Rear Main Seal install, etc.

Check it out all the RSR Clutch info here if you're interested or click the link to my build log in my signature.

Thanks! This might be my next clutch choice so it helps.

After 4 years and 3 months, I finally tuned my GTI to Uni Stage 1+ and added a Borla exhaust. I'm loving the combination but in cold weather the clutch is not able to hold the power. I knew before I got the car tuned that the stock clutch might not hold the power and slipping would eventually occur. I just didn't expect it to start 2 weeks after the upgrade.

I research everything I install on my vehicles and what's most important to me is retaining the stock GTI composure to a certain degree. After all this is my daily driver. I've looked at quite a few clutch options and while there are a lot of pro's and con's to each, the DIY RSR looks like the best option to keep the dual mass flywheel and upgrade the power handling. I'm also considering the HS Tuning kit but will compare the full breakdown in price before I commit. I'll admit I'm cheap and would rather do all the work myself.

Are there any concerns with the RSR kit that I should be aware of? I am considering Uni Stage 2 and I don't want to be replacing clutches every 30K miles.
