848 Slipper Clutch

Howdo!!!

Anyone using a wet slipper clutch on their 848? I believe the clutch is just the hub and pressure plate? Is there any benefit on the road? Previous dry clutches I have made lighter and the motor befitted from spinning up quicker - can this be achieved with a wet clutch? The engine I have is an ST3 but the same clutch as the 848, any experiences / advice most welcome.

Cheers Pablo

Hi Pablo

Had a Sigma slipper fitted to the 848 from new, now done 15k inc quite a few trackdays, brilliant bit of kit, and still on the original plate pack
