Description of each version for reference:
70% Increased Holding Capacity
The FX100 System uses the Power Plus I Heavy-Duty Pressure Plate with a steel backed organic friction material disc. This clutch is engineered for street driven vehicles and is specifically designed for extended wear and additional clamping force for the enthusiast who has added minor bolt-ons such as an exhaust and or intake system, up to 50hp NO2, or other non-forced induction external bolt ons. It features only slightly increased pedal pressure over factory, longer life than stock, and normal clutch feel during engagement and disengagement for a very smooth operation.
70% Increased Holding Capacity
The FX200 System uses the Power Plus I Heavy-Duty Pressure Plate with a steel backed Kevlar friction material disc. This clutch is designed for the street enthusiast or weekend racer. The FX200 offers similar torque holding capacity to the FX100, however, it’s life expectancy is increased 2-3 times with the Kevlar disc. This clutch is a great option if you drive your car aggressively but only have simple bolt-ons. Our Kevlar friction material is non-abrasive and doesn’t score the mating surfaces. It features only slightly increased pedal pressure, significantly longer life than stock, and normal clutch feel during engagement and disengagement for the smoothest operation of any stage we offer.
110% Increased Holding Capacity - STREET
The FX300 System uses the Power Plus I Heavy-Duty Pressure Plate and utilizes a steel backed segmented Kevlar disc. This clutch is designed for the ultimate street enthusiast running a normally aspirated car that has been highly tuned with cylinder head work such as cams, or with a medium-boost turbo or supercharger setup, or up to 100hp NO2. The FX300 has proven to be one of our most successful single disc clutch options over the years. By combining the use of Kevlar friction material in a segmented format, we create more pounds per square inch, allowing more torque holding capacity while still delivering exceptional life. Our Kevlar material is non-abrasive and doesn’t score the mating surfaces. The FX300 features only slightly increased pedal pressure, long life, and positive engagement. The FX300 is recommended for the street and not for track use. There is a minimum of 500 mile break in period required with this clutch.
170% Increase in Holding Capacity - RACE/STREET
The FX400 System uses the Power Plus I, Hi-Levarage, Heavy-Duty Pressure Plate with a custom and extremely durable, Sprung Ceramic disc. This is the ultimate extreme duty street and/or road/drag racing system. It is available in a 6 or 8 ceramic puck configuration. The 6-puck being the more aggressive setup and 8-puck being the less aggressive. The sprung hub design allows for moderate dampening in high-torque applications, rendering it much more street friendly than solid or rigid designs. This disc is designed for long life, outstanding holding capacity, and rapid heat dissipation.
The FX400/HDCL (8-puck) ceramic full face disc design creates a quick and rapid engagement and maintains minimal chatter due to the marcel cushion between the disc linings. This disc is designed for street driven vehicles.
The FX400/HDC6 (6-Puck) ceramic paddle design creates a quick and rapid engagement as well as clutch chatter that may not be ideal for street driven vehicles. *Warning* Due to the solid (no Marcel) friction rivet design, the FX400 6 disc engages very quickly and may chatter slightly in first and reverse. To help alleviate this problem, we only use premium ceramic friction material.
