We wanted to thank Stewart's Automotive for choosing our Kevlar Countach clutch for their customer.

Their customer had the same concerns as our other customers. Their customer wanted a clutch that lasts longer than an OEM since installation of a Countach clutch takes approximately 40-50 hours. The whole engine has to come out including the transmission. Our new Kevlar clutch lasts 300% longer than an OEM clutch.

Their customer also wanted to get a Kevlar clutch that doesn't chatter. He was concerned that Kevlar clutches from our competitors chatters. I told them that we have sold close to 1,000 Lamborghini Kevlar clutches and our customers have put close to 10 million miles on our clutches and we have never had any chattering.

I also told them that one of the reasons that our Kevlar clutch doesn't chatter is that we set it up correctly, which is super important. Setting up a Kevlar clutch correctly will create a full contact with the flywheel.

Another reason that ours doesn't chatter is that we use a very high quality Kevlar material that is also used in the aerospace industry. We don't use cheap Kevlar material. I have seen our competitor's Kevlar material and it's the cheapest Chinese made Kevlar material. That's why we see their clutches failing about once a month.

I also told them that our Kevlar clutch has a 30% lighter clutch pedal pressure. After installing our Kevlar clutch, they kept telling us that it drives so much better and the clutch pedal is so much smoother. They said that the customer is actually driving and enjoying the car more since it's easier to drive.

we have sold another 25th Anniversary Kevlar Countach clutch to New York. We have shipped them this week. I will also start a new thread about his feedback.

Stewart's Automotive is located in Sacramento, CA. They also repair and service Gallardo and Murcielago. I will have them post their feedback here.

Thank you for mentioning us Sean, and for providing an outstanding replacement clutch for our customers' Countach. As you know we were skeptical of replacing the worn unit with an OEM assembly considering the cost and driveability issues the car had with the OEM assembly that had been installed. When the car was dropped off with us, the OEM clutch provided an exceptionally stiff pedal and engagement was either on or off. There was no happy medium. I could barely drive the car into our facility without stalling it. According to my customer, that was how the clutch had always felt and he was just "used" to it. I couldn't imagine owning the vehicle and trying to drive it around in that condition. A total PIA! And as we all know, the Countach is challenging enough to drive let alone the horrible clutch pedal feel. After replacement with the Kevlar unit and pressure plate, the car completely transformed into a comfortable and useable exotic. I would feel confident in stating clutch pedal pressure dropped even more than 30%. Probably closer to 50% with a very smooth engagement. Not what I was expecting with a Kevlar unit, but was very satisfied with the end result. Our customer couldn't believe the difference and ease of driving the vehice. This particular car does not get excercised much as the owner is out of the country often, but I believe that he will put more miles on the car now that it is actually driveable. This clutch has to be the best option available for the Countach and it makes it an enjoyable exotic to drive. We definitely would recommend this assembly to other Countach owners! We look forward to working with you again Sean. Hopefully we can sell some Gallardo and Murcielago jobs soon!

Matt, thank you for your great feedback on our Kevlar clutch. It always makes me very happy when a customer is so happy with our product. Thank you for taking time to post your feedback.

When you get a chance, please post a few pictures of that beautiful Countach. I'm sure everyone here would love to see them.
