Hi all,

I'm new to this site. My wife has a 2000 beetle 1.8T 5spd and the clutch finally went out.
My wife wants the same performance from a dual flywheel but I'm looking into a single.
Any suggestions as to what is the best route without losing performance and cutting a HUGE hole in my wallet?

Thanks

The dualmass flywheels are designed with the springs from the clutch plate built into them. It helps limit the amount of engine vibration which travels to the drive train. They are thicker and more expensive than a single mass flywheel.

That said most posters here use a single mass when replacing a clutch. They are cheaper and some say they have better performance. Single mass will support more horse power as people go to a larger flywheel and clutch.


I will propably go dual mass when I replace mine as my bug is bone stock.
