Haha it will be interesting to see how mine feels when I get it on the road within a month hopefully, 3.38 ratio, 8000rpm and 900hp+I currently use a 2.81 gear in a m3 differential and even at 500hp/550tq I feel I am shifting to much and could benefit a taller final drive ratio.
There’s a company that claims they can ?There is no model DCT transmission out there that has been "cracked". The only DCT in existence that has full transmission control capabilities is the Nissan GTR R35. This is done via Motec's full standalone unit.....
Just following up on Steve's post from a month ago. Here is some information on the hardware in the Dodson Motorsport DCT for BMW.
1. Clutch Basket - Made from high-grade billet steel CNC machined rather than pressed
2. Friction Plates - Partnership with industry leaders Exedy. 10 Plates on the Sportsman Plus
3. End Plates - Designed to withstand high torque loading
Due to the tight tolerances and susceptibility to human error, we like to recommend that installers take advantage of our clutch core exchange program. We send a fully assembled clutch in a protective case ready to be installed. You can offset the cost by returning your old clutch core in the very same case.
In our experience, this is advantageous because it is fast and reduces assembly errors that creep in for even highly skilled installers. When we send a fully assembled clutch our complaints regarding the learning process are next to none. The car is up and running faster, tuners can free up space on their shop floor, it truly is win-win for all involved.
If you want more information regarding specifics, such as how the clutch integrates with vehicle upgrades I would be happy to answer questions as best I can.
What I learned from this thread was that ssp was probably a better choice for aftermarket clutches on the 335is or dct swapped 335s. There were multiple people who shared experiences of serious problems getting the Dodson clutches to work and then everything working after they switched to ssp. So if I read this thread to get information on how to make my Dodson clutches work well, I would have learned that I should return them and get ssp to save myself the problems that the other people had.To those that have made the dct clutch upgrades, can you please kindly provide any suggestions? What things I should be aware of?
What other things should I change now that I will have the transmission down? Any other upgrades?
Thanks in advance
I have sent you a PM. Thanks..Hi all:
Long story short and As I was warn, I have to accept that as off this writing clutches from Dodson, which were paid on May 4 has not arrive. Customer service from Dodson is poor (just to be polite)
This been said and if we have a SSP salesman in here, please reach me via private message to see how can you help me in obtaining your clutch pack and what price you can give me.
