I dunno about Kevlar, but once the oil dries up, the bronze ones will work
pretty good.I used to run a bronze clutch in my old Scirocco, and I blew
up over 10 transmissions with that car, and I used to alternate between
two discs.  They both were basically the same, but switching them back and
forth let them dry out before its next use.  O yeah, reson I mention this
is when they would blow up, it would spew gear oil all in the
But another intersting bit of info is somewhere along the line I did have
to change the flywheel and pressure plate.  Thing is, those metallic disks
dont wear out, the flywheel and plate do!!!!
