The torque difference is what I notice the most. Actually puts me back in my seat now. I also like how it takes the car out under 3k for city driving.
The RSR Hybrid clutch handles at least the first few pulls.
Reactions from friends and family are fun.

Highly recommend my ACT setup, its their next to highest rated clutch and a SMF. Car is my daily. Traffic jams are no fun but its great exercise !

your clutch has a heavy pedal?
I was thinking the same…. The ACT hd pressure plates pedal effort is crazy light!

My clutchmasters fx500, dkm twin, were plenty heavier than what the act felt like and not to mention the stage 5 ringer on the car now which is a real bear, lol.

Rsr Hybrid is plenty fine with is38, it’s the regular rsr that was getting taxed with simple setups of the e888.3 and they revised the listed ratings to lower numbers cause of it.
Whew okay - that’s the clutch I’m gunna go with eventually

I agree, my GTI now has a great balance of power and handling. Thinking of adding some engine/tranny mounts/dogbone, and RSB. Then maybe going down to a 17 wheel so I can run meatier tires.
I drove an MK6 with 17's. Felt too "floaty", switching to 245/40/18 MPS4S on a 8 1/2" wheel feels way better than the 225/40/18 Pirelli P7. Could be the 1/2" taller tire or the extra width, but the ride is more compliant. I had Yoko V601, and while a slightly softer tire (280 vs 300), the ride was harsh and slippery compared to the PS4S.

I'm debating between the IS38+ and the Vortex standard... for the price of the standard with tuning I could add HPFP, or with a little more add MPI + LPFP to the IS38... but I think I may just go with the IS38+ can't go wrong with turbo and tune for around $1k.

What clutch did VW use in the manual CS and R? It can't be the same as the GTI.
