Many people are running more power with hybrid turbos and using the Renault Clio MK2 RS 172 and 182 as trackday cars so they want a clutch with more bite, but still drive to events and on road so dont want a super heavy bite, nor the grabby nature of a full paddle clutch. The RTS clutch kit is designed to work with the standard DMF and will comfortably cope with 235ft lb of torque without slipping. If you have an SMF setup then please get in contact as you require a different setup to stop clutch rattle and damage to the gearbox. This is a hybrid clutch with twin friction compounds to give the best of both worlds.
The RTS clutch has a number of features. The flywheel facing clutch plate surface is similar in design to a standard clutch, but with a higher friction material made by Raybestos. The Raybestos clutch material is the best on the market and reduces slip and judder like some other brand organic clutches. The organic surface allows an element of slip to the clutch engagement. This makes it more pleasant in stop start traffic scenarios when pulling away but also reduces wear and tear.
On the opposite side the paddle style compound is again the best in the business and together with the uprated cover clamp quicker and harder than an original clutch, running significantly cooler than other brands. This makes the RTS suitable for higher power cars where the OEM clutch cannot cope. Use this for trackday Clio’s, Race and Rally cars, both normally aspirated or turbo’d
