Endurance Clutch Information
Developed with APR Motorsport to support their efforts in Grand-Am road racing, the Endurance configuration focuses on reduced transmission wear and perfect transitions from gear to gear. Kevlar and other more exotic materials are used to hold the power for many hours of abuse and torsion springs are used to damper between the engine and gearbox. Pedal feel is typically only slightly more rigid and initial engagement is certainly manageable resulting in a driveline component that quite handily eliminates any concerns from the Drivers and Crew Chief.
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.
