Drag Clutch Information
In no other form of racing are tenths and hundredths of a second more important nor is a vehicles driveline more abused in such a short period of time. It is with this understanding that DXD Racing has developed a line of clutches specific to the needs of this ever demanding sport. Pedal travel is reduced allowing for quicker launches off the tree and initial engagement is as rapid as possible getting all of the power to the ground instantaneously. Use of puck style discs and SFI approved Race Covers provide plenty of power handling capability and aids in the perfect pass everytime.
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.
