Stock clutch cable VS Copetition Clutch and pressure plate

Stronger clutch cable

In 1100 miles I have broken one clutch cable and I think that I stretched another one yesterday, as I had to readjust it today. (The good news was it wasn’t the #1 and 2 sycro's that I thought had joined #3 in being difficult).

I have a stock clutch cable that is rated at about 800 pounds and the local VWbug shop noted that I have the stock cable hooked to a Sachs competition clutch and pressure plate that rated more than twice that.

Where can I get a heavier cable or is there some sort of adjustment that I can make to offset the problem or just be ready to change cables every 1000 miles or so?

Thank you
