Re: Performance clutch question..
Well, I guess I qualify as first hand. I've got the PW dual-composition clutch and I like it. So far, so good. Basically it combines the benefits of the organic facing on the flywheel side and the feramic pucks on the pressure plate (or that may be the other way around).
In any case, the side that you'll be slipping is organic, which responds better to that. The pucks are on the other side so when you fully disengage, it grabs like a Centerforce.
Centerforce clutches are great, and I have one in my Karmann Ghia, but the are primarily a street clutch IMHO. Not meant to slip. I do know that if you slip a puck clutch a lot, it will glaze and be worth nothing.
But what does all of this mean to you? You're a wee bit on the tight side so go buy two Sachs HD's and keep one as a spare.
Otherwise, if yer gonna buy a hi-po model, get the PW.
