Clutch Kit Sports

Sports Clutch manufacturers from around the world.

In a car the clutch is operated by the left-most pedal using hydraulics or a cable connection from the pedal to the clutch mechanism. Even though the clutch may physically be located very close to the pedal, such remote means of actuation are necessary to eliminate the effect of slight engine movement, engine mountings being flexible by design. more from Wikipedia

In a car’s clutch, a flywheel connects to the engine, and a clutch plate connects to the transmission. You can see what this looks like in the figure below. more from how stuff works

Sports Clutch Kit

20/20 Vision, Great Wenham, Colchester
An extensive and competitively priced range of billet steel reduced-inertia flywheels Can there be a more cost effective performance modification? Aluminium pulleys, competition valve guides, brake disc bells and caliper mounts, developed with the help of constructors and engine builders.

ACT
Advanced Clutch Technology, INC. (ACT) is a premier performance clutch kit manufacturer with more than 300 different applications and 500 performance clutch kits. The company’s product line features clutches and forged flywheels for the most popular vehicles in the sport compact, domestic and diesel truck market. ACT’s performance clutches and flywheels are used for street or race, including, but not limited to drag, drift, road and rally racing.

Selecting a clutch to provide the performance, quality and feel a driver demands can be challenging in today’s market. There are lots of performance clutch kit options, friction materials and advertising claims to choose from. ACT has been in the Sport Compact Industry for over 10 years. ACT products are designed to compliment a vehicles’ drive train system and engine’s modifications.

Autotech
One of the most overlooked areas for performance improvement is the drivetrain. Many people disregard clutch and gearbox modifications in their pursuit for more speed, worrying too much about adding more power, and too little about applying it.

Autotech can help you decide which drivetrain modifications are right for you. Whether you’re trying to improve your car’s highway cruising economy, or going for all-out performance, we will be your voice of reason through the entire process. Don’t let your car’s drivetrain hold you back. Supercar performance is only a shift away!
Center Force
Centerforce® is proud to be recognized as the leading manufacturer of performance clutch systems in theUnited States. The Centerforce era started in the early 1980’s when Bill Hays, founder of Hays Clutches in the 1950’s, created the technologies behind Centerforce. Clutches bearing his name are found on thousands of high performance vehicles around the world. With the desire to engineer a solution to the ‘sticking over-center problem’ of diaphragm clutches, Bill Hays designed and patented the Centerforce Weighted Clutch System. His new design increased pressure plate clamping force while maintaining easy pedal effort and would not allow the diaphragms tendency to ‘stick over-center’.

Today, thanks to Clutch Masters, increased holding pressure does not necessarily mean increased pedal pressure and the problems that can accompany it. By re-engineering the leverage or fulcrum point on the pressure plate through their Hi-Leveragetm ttechnique, Clutch Masters has increased clamping power, often without changing pedal pressure.

Excessively increased pedal pressure, as found in many of today’s traditional high performance clutches, places an unsafe amount of pressure on the delicate crankshaft thrust bearing found in most of today’s sport compact automobiles. Placing undue stress on the thrust bearing typically causes the bearing to wear prematurely or fail altogether. This failure can lead to catastrophic internal engine damage.

A clutch, simply put, is a friction device that disengages and engages the engine from the transmission to allow for transition from motionless to movement and for gear changes. For street applications a smooth transition of power is essential while still being able to transfer all the power of the engine to the transmission. As power output of engines increase and demands on clutches become greater – for example high performance street or racing cars – the holding and clamping capacity of a clutch also must increase. This is where Clutch Masters’ innovative engineering comes into play.

Competition Clutch
Sports clutch and lightweight flywheels for popular sport compact cars.

Exedy UK
More than 50 years ago EXEDY founder Kazuma Adachi decided to devote himself toJapan’s fledgling automobile industry and began earnestly working on developing a better clutch. Eventually his efforts bore fruit in the form of clutch discs which would prevent the transfer of noise and vibration from drivetrain equipment.

Those clutch discs came to be used by the world’s most prominent automakers, establishing the foundation of the present company.

Fidanza
WHY DO YOU OFFER BOTH STEEL AND ALUMINUM FLYWHEELS? – Our steel flywheels are designed to be some the strongest flywheels on the market. They are designed to be used where extreme strength is the issue and not increased performance. Some examples of this would be in rock crawling vehicles and sand rails. Our aluminum flywheels are also very strong and will give a tremendous boost in performance without affecting driveability.
