    @Sticky,

    Almost done. Just waiting on Chris to let us know how to put our deposits in.

    He said these clutches are expected to be ready to ship from their U.S. warehouse at the beginning of March.

    Thanks,

    Now looking at a few of the names here I already know of a couple who have dropped out which is fine.

    We're aiming to send the freight the week after next. At this stage we will not be taking deposits or payments until the stock has arrived in the US. I know that's not ideal for some but most of the guys we've spoken with were keen for this as it allows more time to save money and to be honest this works much easier for us too.

    We understand some in that time will inevitably dropout and while we hope that is not the case, this has been much bigger than we anticipated.

    I'll update with further details next week.

    Chris.
    Hi All,

    Just a quick update to let you know the clutches are on their way to the US. As I said a couple of weeks ago, we will not be handling deposits or payments from here, rather we'll have Michael from M Factory handling this once the Kit's arrive.

    Michael is on the forums and some of you may know him already. He will handle both the payments and the freight.

    Once we can confirm the delivery date of the Kits, we will advise and get these sorted so you guys aren't kept waiting too long!

    Hey guys,


    sorry for not replying in this thread (I've been watching it since the beginning though). I didn't want to say anything until Chris confirmed the clutches were on there way over and made the announcement.


    XClutch USA is based out of Ohio, which is the perfect location to service the East Coast. However, what they were lacking was a distribution centre to help service the West Coast. This is where MFactory come in.


    From our 8000sqft facility in LA, we have the logistical capacity to service the entire West Coast quickly & efficiently, and can actually cut down transportation times (from AU to US) by over a week. On top of that, XClutch are dealing with a technical partner that has years of direct experience in the performance BMW drivetrain market. As a lot of you may be aware, XClutch USA is a newly established company/subsidiary and have still to finalise both their logistical and operating aspects in this market, hence the reason why we will be helping them with this group buy.


    We have actually known ACS (Australian Clutch Services, the parent company) for a good number of years now, and have had several meetings with the MD with regards to helping them establish a presence in the US market.


    Over the next few months, we will be working together with XClutch USA to increase inventory stateside, which will include both their Single and Twin Disc applications for the BMW.

    Hey guys,

    the official reply from Chris:

    "Sorry I’ve been in and out of the office all week. I can see the discrepancy and going back through my paperwork, the difference was to compensate for the freight to the US. I averaged about 5% for the delivery cost per Kit to the US, this is on top of the charge for delivery from the warehouse to the end user.

    I made it clear on the forum that there would be a freight charge that would be calculated once we had an idea on numbers.

    I based that pricing off the 10% discount quoted on the forum pages."

    As Chris is calculating pricing based on current exchange rates, it will keep on changing by the time the clutches arrive in the US and are ready to ship.

    Because of this, I won't be able to quote any definite pricing, nor take pre-orders until the clutches have arrived and cleared customs.

    I'll keep everyone updated on the status of the shipment

    If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask

    I rescheduled my initial clutch install from mid-May to this weekend (4/6/19). Looks like I still won't have a clutch to install by then?

    Chris is currently on leave just now, so I'm discussing this directly with Extreme Clutch in AU to see if I can expedite the process. Will have an update later on today!

    Ok guys, this is the latest:


    Although the stock shipment did indeed leave at the beginning of March, after checking with Extreme Clutch AU, it won't actually be arriving stateside till early May (not the mid-March originally stated to me)!


    However, I understand that this is a rather big setback, so what I have arranged is to ship out some clutches immediately to customers on a first-come-first-served basis, outside of the group buy:


    Twin Disc Organic: $1250 inc shipping
    Twin Disc Ceramic: $1350 inc shipping


    Prices quoted are landed in the US and include customs/duty charges, so there are no additional charges on top.



    Just to give you an idea of the number of clutches that are available just now:


    6-Bolt Organic - 1


    Please PM me asap if you wish to order!

    Ok guys, for those who missed out on the "in stock" clutches and don't want to wait till May for the shipment to arrive, I can have the clutches shipped out directly from the AU warehouse. The additional costs would be:


    Shipping - $100 via DHL Express
    Import Duty - ~2.5% of the product price (you pay this to DHL after it arrives, not to me)
