XTREME CLUTCH LAUNCHES NEW PERFORMANCE STREET UPGRADES
The kits have been designed for Australian and overseas markets
Xtreme Clutch has recently revealed several new performance street clutch options to suit the MK 5-7 VW Golf GTI, Skoda Octavia RS, Audi A3/S3 and the Ford Focus RS MK3.
As a division of Australian Clutch Services, the Xtreme Clutch performance upgrades were developed following extensive testing in ACS’ Research and Development facility and have been tested in a variety of vehicles around the world.
The new performance clutch range utilises Xtreme Clutch’s racing inspired 230mm aluminium pressure plate combined with two organic friction discs driven by a central sprung hub.
Xtreme Clutch says this setup offers exceptional increases in torque capacity whilst maintaining a lightweight construction for improved throttle response.
The sprung discs help to improve dampening, making them ideal for high power road applications where a standard gearbox is still used. Each kit also comes with a 4140 chromoly performance flywheel and all the associated hardware including hydraulics where applicable.
“Our latest range of 230mm sprung twin plate organic kits have been designed to support a growing market for high powered turbocharged vehicles with limited bellhousing clearance for larger clutch setups,” Xtreme Clutch Mechanical Engineer, Stewart Furze, said.
“These kits are now available with the sprung hub which will be well suited to a broader range of street driven vehicles that require improved dampening characteristics.”
The kits have been designed for Australian and overseas markets. With a 1000 Nm torque capacity, the new additions are expected to be popular with performance tuning groups specialising in these vehicles.
“Because of the torque capacity of these kits and their intended use, these kits are likely to be popular with very high-end performance tuners,” Stewart said.
“We also offer a wide range of single disc options for vehicles that have had minor modifications beyond the limits of the factory clutch system.”
Xtreme Clutch is also offering ceramic upgrades for these vehicles for motorsport applications that require a higher heat capacity.
