South Bend Clutch and Flywheel kit R52 R53

South Bend Clutch and Flywheel kit R52 R53  
South Bend Clutch and Flywheel Kit is a cost effective replacement for your 02-06 R53 MINI Cooper S or 2005-2008 R52 MINI Cooper S Convertible. This South Bend clutch and flywheel kit is a little different than your original clutch. The Biggest difference is it's a single mass solid steel flywheel, the original MINI flywheel was dual mass flywheel. This makes the clutch different too. With this new single mass flywheel the springs to dampen clutch engagement are now part of the clutch. On the dual mass setup the springs are in the flywheel.
Available in multiple stages:
Stage 1: Heavy duty version of the stock O. E. clutch. The Pressure Plate has an increase clamp load for extended life. The disc is dual dampened for smooth engagement and increased transmission life. Premium friction material ensures rapid heat dissipation increasing the life of the clutch.

Stage 2 Daily: Engineered for HP modifications. This Heavy Duty Pressure Plate has an increased clamp load with little or no increase in pedal pressure. The Organic disc material has a high metal content that increases the co-efficient of friction by two times over a stock lining and increases rotational strength up to a 12,000 RPM burst point. This clutch system maintains a stock feel while offering strength and durability.
Recommended usage is daily, street and moderate race.

Stage 2 Endurance: An SFI approved single mass flywheel is recommended for this application to get optimal performance. This clutch system is designed for the racing climate. The pressure plate is precision balance for vibration free operation at high RPM. The pressure plate fulcrum is altered for a positive disengagement and a quick shift. The disc is engineered with a Dual Damped design to provide accurate control when accelerating through corners. The friction material is a hybrid using a full face Feramic (Sintered Iron) lining on the flywheel side and a high metal content Organic lining on the pressure plate side. Engagement is positive yet buffered due to the high graphite content unique to Feramic facings.
Recommended uses are daily and street with an emphasis on Rally and Endurance racing.
