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.

You can read Fation's feedback here:

Need a clutch, tried calling your office but no answers. Are you closed currently due to the shutdowns? Any way to get a clutch for a Gallardo? Thanks!

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.

100% throw out bearing, sensor and main bearing seal-its all apart and the labor is already covered. The main bearing seals are well known to leak and this is a not a case "don't fix if not broken" I know too many people that had mains leak a few months after a new clutch, $2K of labor for a $200 seal which is more or less free when the doing the clutch same for the throw out bearing and sensor should not even be a question-its already apart. You have $100K car don't cheap out over a few hundred dollars if you have to do it over its $2k+

Hi Sanjay,

It's a good practice and good insurance to replace the throw out bearing, sensor and the seals when you install a new clutch. Do you have to? No, but it's risky if you don't. If your old throw out bearing fails, it might leak fluid on your new clutch and destroy your new clutch. So it depends on how much risk you're willing to take.

We claim that our clutches last up to 300% longer than a stock clutch. But our customers tell us that we're being very conservative because some of our customers are getting 400-600% longer than their stock clutch. If you read a few posts back in this thread, we have a customer who might get 1,000% more than his stock clutch which even surprised us but it was verified by a Lamborghini dealer with an E-gear snap. This is why we have developed an upgraded throw out bearing that will last longer than an OEM throw out bearing. This upgraded throw out bearing will keep up with our clutches better. We are also developing a sensor that would last longer than an oem sensor.

I hope this answers your question.

Thanks,
Sean

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.

Good news! More HT350 coming!

We have some good news. We have 7 HT350 Billet Gallardo clutch coming. It should be finished this week. Unfortunately(or fortunately) 5 have been pre-sold but we will have 10 more next week.

The picture is showing our HT350's pressure plate covers/Lids. HT350 covers are made out of billet aluminum(lighter and stronger than OEM) and are zero balanced to 10,000 rpm.

We wanted to thank Franco at Exotic Insight for purchasing our HT300 Diablo clutch for his customer's 1991 Diablo. His customer wanted a clutch that lasted longer than an oem clutch. He also wanted a clutch that's more driveable. Our HT300 Diablo clutch has 30% less clutch pedal pressure which makes it easier to press on the clutch pedal. This makes the shifting easier and the drive more enjoyable.

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.
