    Default 1.9 Mi16 clutches

    I have got the 309 going very well but have reached the limit of the clutch, two have failed due to slipping in the past year. Very unhappy, we DNFd the Eureka ARC round last Saturday in the first 200 metres.
    First one was Borg and Beck second was Sachs. Flywheel had the correct step. Neither were impressive even when new, lack of bite. I think a Valeo one may fix the problem, the small 8 valve one in the 205 has heaps of bite. Next step up would a pull clutch from S2 or maybe go the whole way and fit a paddle clutch. Any ideas?

    I've had good success with Valeo. Parry is now using Helix however after destroying a few. That would probably suit your needs best.

    Thanks Peter, do you know if Parry has the competition pressure plate? Is the pedal pressure higher?

    Yes I do, yes it is a little on or off and firmer. But it is matched with a 4 puck sprung clutch. Its easy to use though, not too heavy for me.

    Looking at the spec list, the 76 series drive plates appear to be what Parry is describing, as shown in the race/rally line.

    ACS did a sintered clutch kit to suit the 206 cheaper than an import, but I haven't run the car yet
