The STR Clutch line-up was designed to hold high capacity power while still retaining a relatively light clutch pedal. This technology was driven from our racer's demand for a lighter clutch during long endurance races in Japan. Heavy clutch pedals lead to driver fatigue during long endurance racing.
The [STR2C] - STR Twin Plate dampened clutches give some forgiveness to the transmission by absorbing drivetrain shock while providing reliability and strength under heavy abuse. These units are typically good up to 600lbs ft of torque depending on the application. The end result is a quiet and reliable clutch set that will go years before needing overhaul.
****For pure motorsports use or dual purpose vehicles, we recommend starting with our STR clutch lineup.****
Our specially designed clutch cover contains a unique leverage mechanism for the diaphragm spring, resulting in a higher clamping load of the clutch disc(s) while also reducing pedal effort. These diaphragm springs combined with our special OS Giken Release Sleeves provide a much easier to operate clutch.
DISCS We utilize full face metallic clutch plates to achieve high torque capacity from our clutches. This allows for us to use much softer diaphragm springs to achieve equal or better torque capacity compared to our competitors with substantially less pedal effort.
Integrated ventilation holes reduce heat generated inside the clutch system and allows for friction plate dust to exit outside the clutch system, thus increasing reliability and safety. Both the clutch housing and flywheel are chemically heat treated to handle extreme conditions. Increased power output typically requires more torque capacity(friction) in order to hold. This often leads to more heat being generated
Our hardened steel alloy flywheels provide superior durability and life than aluminum flywheels, which also results in quicker and predictable engine response. We develop our own flywheel design to maximize our design and engineering philosophies into a no-compromise, complete clutch assembly.
Our integrated clutch and flywheel packages increase transmission efficiency and engine response. Our clutches and flywheels are built within strict tolerances and crafted using carefully selected materials to provide the highest quality and durability.
The “Pre-Order” order option is enabled when the listed item is either temporarily out of stock, or is only available as a “built to order” item from our factory.
Once an order for a “Pre-Order” item is received, we will confirm lead-time with our Japan factory and contact you within 1-2 business days via email with current projected production lead-time information and delivery date projections. After accepted/authorized we will proceed with finalizing your order. If the quoted lead-time is not accepted, the order will be promptly cancelled and you will be refunded immediately in full.
If there is further delay after your placed order, we will contact you with an updated delivery lead-time or provide you with the option to cancel with a full refund for any unfulfilled order items.
While there is no risk in ordering “Pre-Order” items through our website, feel free to contact us ahead of time regarding product leadtime.
