Audi TTRS clutch slip

I have the kit on my Alltrack, and after about 10-15 launches at the drag strip the clutch starts to slip from 3k to 4k rpm. How many of you have issues with the TTRS clutch? Mods on my car: IE,DP, IS38 custom tune (Moose)

There's probably like 3 people using this clutch.

Completely wrong, just look at the Official DIY TTRS Clutch Kit thread 750 replies and 146,600 views.

A lot of people are using this clutch, so much so that at the beginning we were collecting the parts that you needed and now all the big stores offer a kit that they put together themselves.
For me being FBO APR stage II I havenít had any problems.

But, are you drag racing your car with 10-15 hard launches each time?

This clutch is rated for up to 400-430 ft-lbs of torque on the sites selling the TTRS kits. With the performance mods you listed it looks like you may have reached the working limits of the clutch, but I'm certainly no expert in this arena: my car is currently stock!


I just bought the kit from FCP Euro with an eye towards a Uni Stage 1+ tune as it gives me a margin of safety with an OEM feel and I"m guessing that most folks installing this kit fall into this group based on the posts I've read.

10-15 launches are total launch on the clutch. I have been only one time at the drag strip and had some launches during custom tune

I donít think with my mods they exceed the torque rate limit. On the Alltrack FB group i saw people with more mods than me get torque below 400 from the same tuner. I guess this clutch maybe not good for drag racing 🙁

You might want to dyno your to verify how much power you're a developing.

I think I have about 30,000 miles on my APR Stage 2 car with TTRS clutch, which was installed about 10 months ago. I don't launch, but I do tow with my car, which can be fairly abusive to the clutch. Between feathering the clutch under load when taking off, the occasional quick pass while being too lazy to downshift, and backing my trailer up my inclined driveway at slower-than-clutch-speeds, I suspect my clutch could have a few hot spots on it... or not since I don't usually over-rev when feathering the clutch.

Anyway, no slipping just yet. If my driving habits prove to be too much for this clutch, then I'll get a beefy and chattery Stage 3 clutch of some sort with SMF.
