FX400 Clutch Kit (15020-HDC6) by Clutch Masters. Includes: Disc, Pressure Plate, Throwout Bearing, Alignment Tool. Does not Include: Flywheel. Disc Center Style: Sprung. Disc Type: 6 Pad. Pressure Plate Style: Heavy Duty. Disc Material: Ceramic. The FX400/HDC6 ceramic paddle design creates a quick and rapid engagement as well as clutch chatter that may not be ideal for street driven vehicles. Ceramic based clutch disc are not intended to increase the life expectancy of a clutch rather to increase the holding capacity and improve the durability of the clutch. Using a ceramic based material for easy street driving may reduce the life of the clutch kit due to harsh engagement and higher tendency to slip the clutch kit.
High-Leverage Pressure Plate:
The Clutch Masters High-Leverage pressure plate provides an increase in clamping force while still maintaining a soft pedal feel. The High-Leverage design reduces the amount of load against the crankshaft, minimizing thrust bearing wear, and crank walk. Clutch Masters begins with a OEM genuine pressure plate and incorporates our signature High-Leverage technology in order to achieve maximum clamping force without having to compromise pedal feel. Clutch Masters High-Leverage technology has been proven to be the best method of achieving a high clamping force in the clutch industry.
The Clutch Masters performance disc utilizes a high dampening 4 spring carrier to reduce the amount of shock and impact during engagement. A variety of materials are available to ensure you have the best setup for your application and to best suit your needs. Marcel or “cushion” is also incorporated on Clutch Masters performance disc to reduce chatter and offer a smoother engagement.
Lightweight Steel or Aluminum Flywheel: (Sold Separately)
The Clutch Masters light weight Chromoly-steel flywheel weighs 12lbs, light weight aluminum flywheel weighs 10 lbs. Both flywheels are significantly lighter compared to the OEM cast iron flywheel which weighs 23 lbs. Clutch Masters chromoly-steel flywheel are engineered to be driver friendly with minimal gear rattle which is increased when too light of a flywheel is utilized. The light weight flywheel offers a much quicker throttle response without compromising any bottom end torque which can be reduced when using too light of a flywheel. Clutch Masters light weight flywheels also help to eliminate any turbo-lag which is produced with a heavy flywheel. We recommend the chromoly-steel flywheel for street applications and aluminum flywheel for only race applications. Clutch Masters Flywheels are SFI Certified meeting performance and safety standards for the automotive and motorsport industry.
