You can read Fation's feedback here:We wanted to thank Fation for getting our HT300 Stage 3 for his Twin Turbo Gallardo. His TT Gallardo was making around 1,400 hp. Fation bought this Twin turbo directly from the TT manufacturer. Unfortunately, the clutch that was in there was not holding the power and it was slipping. Sometimes at the take off, it needed 3k rpm to move. The driveability was horrible. It would buck and jerk so much that it was not driveable. He was so frustrated with the other clutch, Fation decided to get our clutch. After the installation, he noticed how smooth our clutch was. All the bucking and jerkiness was gone and he loved the driveability. I will let him post his feedback.
Hi Sean / Hi Tech Exotic,
I have a question about choosing one of your clutches with the anticipated clutch life of 3 x the life of the OEM clutches.
My apologies if it was already answered somewhere in between the 40+ pages on this thread.
The majority of Lamborghini technicians say that when it comes time to change a clutch it is recommended to change the clutch release throw out bearing as well as the clutch sensor even if they aren't malfunctioning for the simple reason of saving on labor costs if they were to go bad after the new clutch has been installed.
Particularly in regards to the clutch release throw out bearing, it is my understanding that a customer who purchases one of your clutches with 3x the life expectancy of an OEM clutch would still be using the regular OEM Audi/Lamborghini clutch release throw out bearing along with it which was NOT designed to function 3x as long as expected.
Since changing the clutch release throw out bearing incurs a similar expense for labor as changing the actual clutch, how realistic is it that a customer will really enjoy 3x the amount of driving since at least one part that makes up the clutch system is not manufactured to last that long?
Thank you Sean, the lightweight flywheel and 350 clutch are a great addition to the Gallardo. And I find they have added to the drivability of the car. Having the 2005 manual with the longer gears I always thought there was a "dead" spot starting in 1st gear. This combination of lightweight clutch and flywheel has all but eliminated that issue. I have about 800 miles on the clutch currently. Unfortunately due to the pandemic the car has been sitting for the past several months. I will be back down in FL begining of June and I look forward to putting more enjoyable miles on the clutch.We wanted to thank James for purchasing our HT350 clutch. HT350 lasts 350% longer than a stock clutch. HT350 uses a lot of billet aluminum which makes it the lightest Gallardo clutch in the market. HT350 shifts almost as fast as a DCT like Huracan or Audi V10 plus.
He also got our lightweight flywheel which helps it to shift even faster. He absolutely loves how fast it shifts. The lightweight flywheel also helps the engine to rev up faster to 8k rpm.
If you look at the HT350 pressure plate's cover/lid picture, you don't see any dimples because our cover/lid is made out of a billet aluminum and it comes zero balanced. Dimples are used to shave off weight to balance the clutch but there is no need for balancing our HT350 because it comes zero balanced already.
You're very welcome. Thank you for your great feedback. HT350 and Lightweight flywheel really transforms the Gallardo. Gallardo performs better by shifting faster and revving quicker. Please keep us updated when you put more miles.Thank you Sean, the lightweight flywheel and 350 clutch are a great addition to the Gallardo. And I find they have added to the drivability of the car.

11 years later. How did it last?To all you guys I know there are other threads out there regarding clutch replacement on the Gallardo.
I can highly recommend Sean @ Hi Tech Exotics on his very well manufactured Kevlar clutch assembly.
The clutch replacement took about 7 days from time of order and shipped to Australia straight away.
the replacement was done in about 14 to 16 hrs all up.
The exhaust clamps giving us the most trouble as I have a UK delivered car and all clamps were corroded.
The studs had to be re drilled and new ones were put in.
The Kevlar clutch is very light and great engagement with all gears.
Thanks to Sean @ Hi Tech Exotics
