One of the statements people always make with a performance clutch is “It’s a little harsh, but you get used to it”. What that means is you’re the only one who can drive your car without stalling it. It’s been our goal to find a clutch that can take as much abuse as 95% of the MX5 community will throw at it without relying on puck style clutches with leg achingly heavy pedal feel and aggressive as hell engagement.
Don’t settle for “you’ll get used to it”.
This clutch has the feel of a Stage 2 pressure plate, with the engagement of an organic stage 2. What does that mean? It’s not snatchy or grabby, it doesn’t wear your leg out and it won’t make you look a fool in start stop traffic. You can hand your keys to your significant other without them having to “put up” with the clutch on your racekor.
How have we achieved this? We went to one of the best Clutch manufacturers in the UK, who build custom clutches for any and all applications in house, they offer a variety of materials and with the innovative dual friction material design giving the slip of an organic face with the torque holding potential of the ceramic, you get the best of both worlds. The custom modified pressure plate with a changed fulcrum point to give you more mechanical advantage as well as the slotted design provides 8% more torque holding without any increased pedal feel.
You know what else is awesome? This clutch is fully rebuild able and supported by us, the organic face is on the flywheel side so it doesn’t chew up your nice Ultra Lightweight unit and we can offer all of this at a highly competitive price point.
