RTS drive plate (clutch Disc) has a unique flywheel side friction material. The aramide friction exhibits 50% less wear than a conventional drive plate friction material. This material also reduces the effects of fade. Fade is the decline in the clutch system’s ability to transmit torque as operating temperatures increases. These features in combination with the previously mentioned microstructure of spheroidal casting and ER2 technology allows the clutch kit to dissipate heat far more effectively, allowing the clutch to run cooler for longer.
It also means that the clutch system can transmit greater than 60% more torque than a standard clutch kit making is suitable for very demanding conditions but still feels and drives the same as a standard clutch kit. This overall torque capacity increases have been achieved by higher clamp load, increased mean effective radius of the pressure plate, better cooling and higher coefficient of friction materials on the clutch disc.
RTSTF – 3350 has been designed and manufactured to exceed the original clutch system installed as Original Equipment.
Each component has been thoroughly tested and developed to provide a Quality Assured replacement part that will meet or exceed the requirements of the original clutch system.
