Daily Clutch Information
The Daily configuration is focused around an OEM pedal feel and initial engagement characteristics. This is the clutch that won’t give you a significantly stronger left leg but will provide many thousands of miles of ease of use and operation with the ability to transfer engine performance to the tires. The quick engagement of most aftermarket clutches or the “grab” is greatly reduced and in most cases completely eliminated to allow for smooth clutch release and easy initial acceleration.
This Heavy Duty Pressure Plate has an increased clamp load with little or no increase in pedal pressure. The Organic disc material has a high metal content that increases the co-efficient of friction by two times over a stock lining and increases rotational strength up to a 12,000 RPM burst point. This clutch system maintains a stock feel while offering strength and durability.
