TVS engineering DSG Race Clutch
Since 2005 TVS Engineering is the pioneer in developing DSG software and hardware upgrades. Over the years we have been developing and further perfecting our DSG products. The TVS DQ250 DSG racing clutches are running strong for years now without any major modifications after the first release back in 2009. Based on this knowledge and experience we further expanded our DSG racing clutches program with the DQ380, DQ381, DQ500 and DL501.
TVS DSG Racing clutches are designed to increase clutch torque capacity to the maximum without sacrificing reliability or drivability. To achieve this we carefully balanced the friction surface area, friction materials, plate designs, and clutch pack shimming. Over the years we have learned that a perfect balance is the key for a good DSG racing clutch. Too often we see clutches with too many friction plates, too thin steel plates and bad friction plate designs.
All of this has a negative effect on the reliability and drivability of the DSG transmission. Too many plates will increase the friction of the clutch resulting in reduced drivability and gear synchronizing issues (noises) nowhere near the factory drivability. Too thin plates, often directly resulting from adding more plates, will reduce the clutch thermal capacity.
