CLUTCH KITS

Many drivers prefer a vehicle with manual transmission because it offers a much higher level of "feel,"gives more control over the car and affords them better gas mileage to boot. Perhaps the most important element of a sound manual transmission is a sound, high-performing clutch. The clutch is a subcomponent of a car's manual transmission system that engages and disengages the engine to the gearbox and transfers torque to the vehicle's transmission in split-seconds.

Most clutch kits come with a clutch disc or a clutch friction disc and clutch pressure plate, although some kits may also include pilot bushings or pilot bearings. The pressure plate contains a clutch plate, springs, cover and release fingers. There are two basic forms of pressure plates, the diaphragm-type, and the spring-type. Diaphragm-type plates are more commonly used than spring-type pressure plates.

The clutch disc is a metal disc that directs the flow of power between the engine and the transmission along with the pressure plate and the flywheel. Most clutch kits have one or more friction discs. In kits with multiple discs, the discs are pressed tightly together against the flywheel by springs. Regular clutch discs are lined with asbestos, the same material that is used in brake shoes and pads to achieve friction. This special facing enhances the grip between the flywheel and the disc. Clutches used by trucks and racing cars, however, use ceramic for their clutch discs for increased friction. 

TAPP's high-performance clutch kits utilize premium materials used to garner optimal friction, as well as stronger springs to match so you can achieve faster and harder launches, quicker shifts, and dramatically improved durability.
