NO CLUTCHING AT STRAWS

The DYAD Drive System Multi-Disc Clutch Kits from Centerforce are designed to handle the additional torque loads from a modified performance engine. In fact, the DYAD technology means the clutch can handle up to 1300 lb/ft  torque.

Centerforce’s patented DYAD System relies on a pair of discs being driven from a single damped hub, ensuring that both discs are fully-damped. This results in better drivability and improved noise reduction. The set-up also has a clever anti-rattle system that uses specialised washers to suppress floater rattle without inhibiting the clutch operation. The clutch kits come pre-assembled with ARP hardware.
