Where to get a paddle clutch for a TDI in the USA?

Anyone know? Found several places in the old country, but none here in the USA.

Seems like a simple enough paddle to make, 23 spline, 1" shaft (If my information is correct).

Anyone have a source? I would just buy one in the UK, but shipping is crazy spendy. Best price I found over there is 150 GBP.

I tried a 130 clutch and 2 different ones of the heavy duty organic type, but she is tuned tight enough that neither are suitable. I need a real workhorse of a clutch. Current one has started slipping under high loads (towing, 7K lbs, 75 mph), and also if I really goose it in 2nd or third...

Thanks in advance for the help.

Charles

Nah, just a little more clutch. Turning too much Torque.

Have you tried replacing the clutch spring fingers, which are what actually presses the clutch against the flywheel? dumb question, I know, but it's worth checking

I have replaced the pressure plate with each disc, using an uprated spring the last time.

The answer to this for future searchers is: buy the uprated AP driveline kit. Nice clutch.
