9-5 Aero uprated pressure plate

Small issue with my 9-5 Aero pressure-plate, so now I need an uprated friction plate/clutch disc, for some 360 HP/520 Nm.

Looked here and there and except SACHS RACE ENGINEERING, couldn`t find anything else. Got one but it is soooo hard that I barely can de-clutch

Hints/ideas? Including sources of vendors/links...

What clutches are you guys using on your highly tuned 9-5 Aero`s?

thanks a lot for help!

A stock Viggen or 9-5 Aero pressure plate should hold that amount of torque.

My Viggen disc/PP combo was at that same level of torque (390 WTQ) for more than a year....The pressure plate was fine when I pulled it.

BUT....I rarely, if ever, launched from a stop.

lightening the flywheel

BTW, any advises/hints on lightening the flywheel on the 9-5?
the friction side is recommended to be re-surfaced/rectified, what about lightening? How much? any specs? some pics with your 9-5 lightened flywheel?
Thanks a lot!

Also depends, if you have a suicide tune that slams torque on vs building it over time...
