Thread: B5 RS4 Stage 3 build

    [QUOTE=Falco;468316
    The B7 RS4 with 40hp more from the factory did a 0-200kph time of 16.6 seconds for comparison.[/QUOTE]
    I always wanted something street that ran 0-200 in 10sec or less.

    10 seconds 0-200kmh is the aim for this car!

    Wanting to get my car tuned this July, I have opted for a different clutch and flywheel combo whilst my Spec Carbon twin is in the US getting repaired. This kit is rated to 750NM by Sachs. A mate of mine is running this same kit on his TTE780 RS4 at 1000nm with no issues.
    The kit is a billet steel flywheel, sintered 4 puck 240mm disc and a sachs '707' 240mm pressure plate.

    going to be like going back to driving school and learning a manual again... I remember the last 'puk' clutch that I had... took a bit of time to go from the slow kangaroo feeling to somewhat 'smooth'

    Had the same clutch for about 4 weeks. Never slipped but Just to much shudder. Spec stage3+ is theway to go.

    That is what I was worried about. I have been assured that it is not that bad though. Guess I will only know once I drive it.

    Did you have exactly the same setup as pictured above?
    I would have thought the Spec stage 3+ being a full faced semi metallic disc would have been even more prone to shuddering. Ho many kms have you done on the Spec?

    Spec Stage 3+ is a good clutch disc.

    Held on my S2 with 670hp at the wheels and i reckon approx 600nm+ at the wheels.
    Current:
    - Audi S2 1993 - Kingfisher Blue - GTX3582r + E85 = 500kw atw (More power...coming soon)

    - Audi SQ5 2013 - Panther Black Crystal Effect - Red Leather

    Past:
    - AUDI S4 2002 - Nogaro Blue - Stage 3+ 249 Kw atw
    - AUDI S3 2001 - Silver -
    169 Kw atw

    *Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of your car and oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of your car.
    *Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall and torque is how far you take the wall with you.

    I had a 'puk' clutch on both my stage III+ A4 (1.8TQ) and swapped that out a few times for various clutches... Can't remember what I had at the end, but it was hard to find one that would take the abuse and not shudder on take off (and last long enough).

    Not sure what clutch I had on the S5 (v8 / supercharged), but it was a puk and it took a while to get 'used' to it... however, each launch was a bit 'shaky'....

    Ended up with a Southbend one, (and carried it back in to the country from Hawaii!!)..From memory, it was this one..

    That is a good amount of power to hold! Do you know what torque you were making at the flywheel?

    The Southbend pressure plate looks identical to the Sachs one Im using. I have heard Southbend using unmodified Sachs motorsport pressure plates so good chance it is the same.

    This will be the first puck clutch I have used so I am curious to see what the drivability is like. Mate of mine running the same setup says it is quite streetable, almost everyone else says shudder is too much. I guess I will know next week..

    no i would only be guessing. But in relative terms torque at the flywheel would be up around 700+...
    the spec stage 3+ is rated to 925nm from memory
