When do I need a TVS DSG upgrade racing clutch?

Our Stage III DSG software is the strongest DSG software available on the market wherein maximum physically possible clutch pressures and extremely high stock clutch torque capacities are achieved. If your engine application produces more torque than the maximum supported engine torque of our Stage III software, you simply do need an upgraded race clutch! See the maximum supported engine torque on stock clutch together with TVS Stage III software here. For motorsport / racetrack applications TVS always advise to use our upgraded race clutches!

Is it needed to adjust software after installing a DSG upgrade racing clutch?

Yes, it is absolutely needed to upgrade the TCU software after installing an upgraded DSG race clutch. If this is not performed there will be no benefit after installing the upgraded DSG racing clutch.
