RPM Clutch

RPM Street Smart

RPM heavy duty Clutch systems are just that – heavy duty. They strike a balance between increased torque capacity, performance, and drivability. Our engineering department redesigns the clutch system to provide increased torque capacity while maintaining comfortable pedal effort and feel.

RPM Performance Clutch Plate Options:

RPM Clutch systems are a stronger more capable clutch system, upgraded from standard specifications and engineered to enhance your vehicles performance. Refined and developed over 20 years there is no other brand in the Australian aftermarket which has more performance heritage than the RPM Performance clutch range. We offer RPM Kits for more than 3,500 applications

The following applications may subject a standard clutch to loads which may exceed the original design capacity of the clutch system:

  • Heavy duty application such as towing;

  • Vehicles with engines modified  

  • Driving enthusiasts

  • Off Road Vehicles

  • Trade or Delivery Vehicles


Available in up to four (4)  configurations, each RPM Kit has a minimum 20% increase in torque capacity and in many application more than this subject to design specifications. The additional torque capacity reduces "slip" and increases the power delivery capability of the system over a wider horsepower range.

 

 

Cover Assembly
A high capacity cover assembly increases the torque capacity of a clutch system.

The additional strength is achieved by the use of components designed to provide the strength, thermal properties and durability required to increase torque capacity and reduce slipping over a wider temperature range. Refinements include upgraded diaphragm, improved geometry and a Non Hexaralent Zinc Chromote finish.

Level 1: Organic
A sprung centre type clutch plate designed for drive-ability. These clutch plates use an Organic friction material resistant to slippage and burst. They provide good pedal feel and progressive take up when matched with a high capacity cover assembly.

Level 2: SSCC
A sprung centre type clutch plate with cerametallic friction material bonded to a backing plate. There is dampening between the backing plates improving modulation. Torque capacity is increased however the concession is a slightly harsher engagement when compared to a clutch plate using organic friction material.
Level 3: SSC
A sprung centre type clutch plate with cerametallic buttons rivetted to the disc. This type of plate typically has less inertia than a standard plate and this can translate into a faster shift with a reduced shift effort. This type of plate retains a sprung centre to dampen the impact and loads that reach the drive train. This type of plate can be harsh during operation and it is not suitable for being purposely slipped. The Ceramic buttons increase the torque capacity of the clutch without requiring an increase in clutch size.

Level 4: SC
The SC option is a rigid clutch plate with cerametallic buttons rivetted to the disc. The cerametallic buttons increase the torque capacity of the clutch without requiring an increase in clutch size.

The cerametallic material has a high coefficient of friction. This provides a very positive engagement and is either in or out. It is not suitable for being purposely slipped.
