Clutches, from standard to “Xtreme”!
We at S&J, have had an enormous amount of experience with clutches over the
years, and fortunately our very close working relationship with Australian
Clutch Services (ACS) has benefited our clients time and time again.
components in the drive-train there is an art to making a clutch reliable and
purposeful yet still affordable, this is where Gavin the head technician at ACS
has been a huge help to us over the many years.
ACS on-goingly give us the same
level of service that we offer our clients, and thanks to this support we are
able to supply and install anything from a standard replacement clutch kit up to
a Full Race Clutch from the very broad ACS “Xtreme” Range and even a complete
custom set-up to suit any application at all!
Standard Replacement Clutch kit, comes
complete with Pressure-plate, Drive-plate,
Thrust bearing and Spiggot bearing and includes
Flywheel machining when installed by us.
|Xtreme Heavy Duty Replacement kit, as per
the standard kit but with a Heavy Duty Pressure-plate that uses a Chrome-Moly
inserted friction surface for clamp load + durability, does not increase the
pedal pressure on most models WRX, STI and EVO. Highly recommended on daily
driven Subies and EVOs that are producing over 200kw ATW.
|Xtreme Heavy Duty Button Race Clutch kit, has
the Heavy Duty Pressure-plate with Chrome-Moly insert, but the drive is
transmitted through a Race Drive-plate that has a Heavy Duty centre and
Carbotic linings attached for yet improved clamp load requirements,
particularly recommended for vehicles that frequent the track.
|Xtreme Heavy Duty Kevlar Race Clutch kit, as per
the Heavy Duty Button Race Clutch kit, but with Kevlar linings in place on
the Carbotic buttons, silky smooth and also recommend for track and road
use, a Stealth Race Clutch.
|Xtreme Heavy Duty Carbon Blade Race Clutch kit,
again as per the Heavy Duty Button Race Clutch kit, but this time with
Carbon Blade linings, “Xtremely” grippy and will take an awful lot of abuse
in Race take-off situations, highly recommended for Hill-Climb and Drag
applications and still relatively road friendly if driven on the street.
This is the Style of Clutch used in our own Race and Rally Cars!
Also the Flywheels pictured with the clutches above are from the Xtreme
range, they made from “Explosion-Proof” Chrome-Moly and are available with any
clutch combination, they are also a performance improvement in regards to weight
and surprisingly cost effective for what they are!
