    Default 306 GTI 6 clutch

    Hi guys,
    I am a new member, i have a December 1999 built 306 GTI 6 which requires a new clutch. I am looking for some advice on the best options for an upgrade from the original/standard clutch. The reason being i would like to do some track days in the future, while still having great performance on the road. Thanks in advance, and look forward to your replies.

    If it's mostly a road car keep it stock, mate - especially the flywheel.
    Get a good Valeo/Sasic clutch and you'll be happy. The second you look at lighter flywheels or paddle clutches for the road on an otherwise stock engine you'll regret it.

    My standard clutch has done heaps of track days. The main thing that kills a clutch is extra hard standing starts and you don't do them on track days. Get into it, you'll love it.

    Hi, bringing up an old thread here. I haven't been on in a while, and still haven't replaced my clutch. Who do you guys recommend for doing some performance work on my GTi6 in the Melbourne area. First upgrade would be a fast road clutch. Thanks in advance!
    Cheers

    No need for anything different to a standard clutch. The standard clutch is fine for 190nm of torque.

    Just make sure you replace the clutch cable at the same time - that will make the biggest difference.

    I put the standard Sasic clutch back into my GTI6 and it was perfect. No need to put anything heavier into a '6' unless you're turbo / super charging. I'd call it a downgrade putting an overly heavy clutch into a '6'.

    Cheers
