    Hi guys
    ive just bought an e36 325i 1991 m50 non vanoss engine
    todays job was fitted coilovers all round and welded the diff!!
    been out in it tonight to give it a try gave it some serious abuse and clutch slips when i kick it in second and ive got back and the smell coming from the clutch was so bad it made me feel sick!!!
    What clutch setup are you guys running thats suitable for serious abuse on stock power with welded diff??

    get rid of dual mass flywheel in favour for a single mass , then stick a decent branded clutch in .

    You only need a standard clutch for standard power.

    89000 unknown miles. Might of had a replacment with a cheap shit item. A luk clutch kit will be suffice.
    If you want rid of dual mass either machine an m20 flywheel and get a m20 clutch with e21 release bearing. Or buy an aftermarket one for the engine.

    Good quality oem clutch is more than adequate for standard power, LUK or Valeo and you should be all good

    It looks identical to the one in driftworks shop to be honest, think I may bite the bullet and get one, competition clutches seems a reputable brand so can't see it being too bad?
