The Clutch Masters FX400 clutch is a great upgrade over the stock R53 MINI Cooper S unit. It retains the standard pressure plate to keep a light feeling at the pedal, with a stronger sprung six paddle ceramic friction plate to ensure no slip for high torque / high power applications, making this clutch the best of both worlds. We think this is a brilliant option for those owners wanting a road driveable paddle clutch that beefs up your R53 MINI Cooper S's drivetrain to cope with high power outputs, but without causing any driver discomfort of a heavy pedal for road use. Key features of the Clutch Masters FX400 R53 MINI Cooper S paddle clutch include:- · Ultra heavy-duty street &racing system · Holding capacity 170% over stock · Heavy-Duty reinforced pressure plate · Hi-Leverage™ pressure ring design · Sprung hub/4-button · Ceramic friction material All Clutch Masters clutch kits come complete with: · Pressure Plate · Clutch Disc · Throw-out Bearing (when applicable) · Pilot Bearing or Bushing (when applicable) · Alignment Tool
