Are there any negatives to running a one piece driveshaft on the street or a road course? (extra vibrations, etc...)

Also what axles, pumpkin and any additional diff supports are you running?

Getting back on topic:


WOW, this UUC Twin Disc clutch & ltw flywheel is one great setup. I've put a few miles on it now, & all I can say is it really feels great.

So far, I'd highly recommend this setup. I'll put a thousand miles on it or so, & I'll report back.


Good luck,
Rob

My question is exactly what does this twin plate setup offer than the single disc version does not?

Higher cost.


I think the way to sum it up would be to say: The holding capability of an Extreme 4 or 6 puck race clutch disc, but with the smoothness & drivability of a stock / OEM clutch & flywheel.

Firm pedal feel, with total "slipable" modulation.

Thanks! That's a good explanation. UUC needs to bring out a 6sp version...I might buy it.

I came here to ask the same thing.. anyone with really high horsepower ran this clutch yet (600rwhp+)?

I don't mind the OS Giken triple but I'm not against trying other solutions .. if not just to keep my OS Giken for strictly dragging/racing...

Sorry guys, we didn't have an active account during those earlier posts.

I have the twin feramic in my e36 and it has held everything I have thrown it so far. We have several other units in customer cars also working nicely. We just finished a built m coupe with a 6466 and our twin scroll manifold. The car has a uuc twin with organic discs. We just saw some clutch slip on the Dyno after a few hundred miles of break-in. Since we plan on turning things up a bit we will be swapping the discs to the feramic ones.

How much abuse have you put the twin feramic through? What kindof power have you been running with it and do you slip it alot when dragging? How much noise when compared to a giken? Would you recommend it over the giken?

The uuc setup is more daily ok than the giken but osg does have a more streetable version available-can just email them to see if they have stock of it stateside

The uuc is made nicely but known to have bolt interference issues with the rear main oil seal and oem bmw bolts.

I sent two uuc units to a client overseas 4th quarter 2012: should be fine for intended application (500-600rwhp). Engines are being built now and ill know if any interference issues show up

Others have used them stateside to about 700rwhp without issues

Os Giken setup if choosen aggressive version should be 1200rwhp ok. Also no known interference with the bolts and the os quality is second to none. I have daily driven other os setups in Japanese turbo cars happily

Sent from my GT-N7100 using Bimmer App

Clarification: rare issue seen mostly on Euro motors and a few US motors built with alternate BMW service parts that do not match the spec of original BMW parts.

Issue resolved at this point with a modification of the design to accomodate the alternate bolts.
