Heavy Duty Pressure Plates
holding power, better 60ft & 1/4 mile times, and long life are
all benefits that come along with these plates. What makes our
pressure plates the highest standard of the industry? First,
we start off with new units. We do not offer rebuilds (except
for special circumstances or warrantee work). Second, we increase
the pressure the right way: by changing the diaphragm. The diaphragms
are specially heat treated through an exclusive 3 stage process
and then hardened on the release bearing contact area to reduce
wear. Third, we make sure that the pressure curve and release
travel of the unit is in the right working range. Forth, we
use proven assembly procedures that insures consistency and
precision. Finally, we accurately balance and test every unit
we produce. No guesswork, no hype, only proven engineering and
Extreme Pressure Plates
The maximum holding power available! Our solution: apply more
diaphragm pressure. With a less aggressive street disc, this
makes a great combination for high HP street cars that prefer
smooth engagement. For racing, combine our Extreme Pressure
Plate with our race disc for the ultimate in torque capacity
and durability. What makes these units so unique is a radical
increase in pressure without altering the proper geometry or
stacking of diaphragms. The result is maximum holding pressure
and long life, while maintaining good release clearance for
fast, clean shifting. This can only be done with a specially
engineered diaphragm. On some units, like the one shown above,
we actually include gusseting the cover to reduce flex caused
by the the high pressure. These are made with the same high
standard as our heavy duty pressure plates. You will find these
on many of the fastest cars on the track. How do they feel?
A little stiff, but smooth! Extreme Pressure Plates can be identified
throughout the application chart when the pressure plate number
is followed by a suffix "X".
clutch disc is a very important part of the system.
We offer a
full faced street/strip organic lining for most applications. It has
the highest quality lining available. It will hold a lot of power.
For those of you that want the ultimate holding power we suggest the
6 puck ceramic copper race disc. Not for the timid driver, this disc
will hold much more power than any other clutch will. We can supply
any combination of pressure plate and discs.
Street / Strip Discs
spring center replacement disc designed for smooth engagement,
quiet operation and improved durability. We offer the best brands
for the application. Street discs can be used with moderate
to heavy duty applications including racing depending on torque
output and heat. View our application chart for more information
on torque capacity. Some times a special performance organic
disc is available. These discs use special performance linings
that are designed to withstand high heat and high RPM. When
the suffix "M" appears, the disc has been modified by reducing
the marcel enabling quicker action.
Ceramic Race Discs
in 6 pad design. These pads (pucks, buttons) are highly durable
and resistant to heat. They actually perform better when hot!
The copper ceramic material holds approximately 32% more torque
than an organic lining. Copper ceramic discs engage fairly harsh
and are not normally recommended for street use. The high copper
content of the material helps to absorb heat and reduce the
temperature of the mating parts. Shifting is quick and sure
due to the lightweight rigid design. No worries about broken
center sections or springs. They are well suited for smaller
disc sizes from smaller engines.
