True. I'm looking at all options. Hence, the reason why I've come to the experts here. Before anything else, if I keep the car, I will first take care of the chatter issue. One of the reasons I chose the R is the relative ease of creating power. If I could go back in time and still in the market for an R, I would have chosen the DSG option.

You might as well replace the clutch and go Stage 2. Even with an IC it's cheaper than trading.

Might contact Sachs and see if the disc from the SMF is compatible with the DMF.
If so it would be cheaper to only buy a new flywheel, than a new disc and pressure plate as well.

This is the full Sachs SMF setup: flywheel, pressure plate, disk, & throwout bearing. That means the disk is sprung. I would need at least an unsprung disk even if I use the stock dmf.

I know, I have the Sachs SRE which is DMF.
If the discs are compatible, then all you would need is the DMF.

Unfortunately my disc is sprung for use with a SMF.. The DMF disc is unsprung.

Can anyone help explain to me what these abbreviations stand for? I am able to piece together some of them, but I don't know enough about clutches to fully understand.

smf: Single mass flywheel?
dmf: ? dual mass flywheel, but no idea how this is different than these others.
rsr: ???

Just some clarification would be greatly appreciated.

I'd be concerned about "upgrading" to the RSR and having it slip. From my experience on my mk6 golf R they are not the strongest. My friend also has a mk7R with APR stage 2 and his RSR just started slipping.

the clutch on the VW are not good. I've upgraded to the Southband Stage III and i also get a bit of chatter but it is not bad... I dont regret doing it, and at least my wife has not noticed it yet... hahaha
I am considering upgrading to stage 3 or is38 turbo just because the car can now handle up to 580Lbs of torque...

Easy answer for OP, and won't cost a penny: Whenever wife along for ride, turn up music loud enough to drown out clutch. Just make sure music is her fav, and what you can tolerate. If her fav music is Beyonce, Brittney, Taylor Swift etc, then hopefully you are shit out of luck, and will need a different solution. But you can't sell your car. That is secretly frowned on here

I may sound rough, but you obviously have the means to afford nice toys. You know the right answer to fix your problem, not sure why cost is even a concern.

I do not think the OP knows the answer. I do not think anyone knows the answer, just opinions.. why spend the money and not be happy again
He is just doing his due diligence. Hey OP too bad you are not near me or you could check out the car I have with the clutch kit I have. I think That would be your best bet. Post in local forum.

Worse case sale the car and get one with DSG...

You're exactly right! Thank you for clarifying my intentions. I try to dispense with the back and forth, off-topic conversations, that dilute the true topic at hand. There is an immense amount of knowledge within forums, that's why I'm here!

With that said, my finally attempt to rectify my issue, is to order a Fluidampr.
Thank you, Reggie!!

Slow is definitely relative. I think for most of us, the R is plenty fast even stock. For others, even a Demon is pokey.....
