SPEC Clutch Kits for the naturally aspirated Mini Cooper are some of the highest quality performance clutch kits on the market. Spec makes a high performance clutch option for any level of stock or modified Mini Cooper.
IMPORTANT NOTE on Solid vs. Sprung Clutch Kits
R50 Mini Coopers came from the factory with a dual mass (sprung) flywheel and a solid hub clutch. If you switch to an aftermarket, solid (single mass) flywheel, you need a sprung hub clutch disk (SPEC part numbers that end in "S") to maintain proper clutch operation. If you plan on using a new SPEC clutch with the factory flywheel, a solid (unsprung)(SPEC part numbers that end in "R") hub clutch disc is required.
Fits the following MINI models:
R50 2002-2006 Hatchback Cooper
SPEC Stage 1
Stage 1 features an integrally molded carbon kevlar-based, high performance organic lining that offers smooth engagement and excellent life. This lining has an integrally bonded steel backing for strength under high clamp loads and temperatures. The hub is double sprung with spring cover relieves for flexibility and heat treated components for strength and durability. Stage 1 is suggested for OEM replacement or daily driven and lightly modified Mini Coopers. Torque capacity is rated to 175ft/lbs at the crank.
SPEC Stage 2
Stage 2 features segmented or full faced pure Kevlar disc with steel backing. This lining features excellent drivability like the stage 1, but offers slightly longer life and higher torque capacity. The hub is double sprung with spring cover relieves for flexibility and heat treated components for strength and durability. Stage 2 is suggested for moderately modified and daily driven Mini Coopers. Torque capacity is rated at 205ft/lbs at the crank.
