This is a Phoenix Friction Stage 3 Street Performance Clutch Kit. The kit features a Phoenix Friction high heat Ceramic spring dampened disc. It will provide up to a 60% increase over the stock engine torque capacity. At the same time, you will not notice any increase in pedal effort over the stock clutch and offers chatter-resistant lift-off for a great daily ride. Ceramic button discs will give you the fastest shifts due to their low radial mass which reduces their overall flywheel effect and works with all flywheels, including lightweight steel and aluminum. You can expect 200% the life over original equipment woven organic linings from Ceramic buttons under normal driving conditions. These buttons will absorb the most energy of all the friction materials and is the material of choice for the highest torque applications. A Phoenix Stage 3 Street Performance product is a direct factory fit and requires no modifications for installation.

In 2010 I purchased one of your STG3 VW Ceramic clutches. It's been just terrific! Before ordering it I had concerns with shipping to Canada, I phoned down there and talked to a great guy who helped me out. Then when installing it, I had some questions and your support team answered my emails quickly and I got the clutch installed with no issues! So thank you very much for a wonderful product, and for having wonderful employees. About said clutch, I was just recommending it to another VWvortex forum member, and noticed that the torque rating of the stage 3 ceramic is only listed as 185ft/lbs? Is that a mistake? I run a turbo charged setup with nitrous, and my setup is likely closer to 300ft/lbs when under spray, then 200ft/lbs. But I've never had an issue with the clutch ever slipping? I think you might be underrating that clutch some. :)
