Xtreme Clutch introduces Corvette C7 performance upgrades.
Xtreme Clutch has recently finalised testing on a new performance upgrade range for the C7 Corvette with both the 6.2L naturally aspirated and supercharged V8 engine configurations. The kits have been developed primarily to suit the US market but have also been developed to suit the niche market for these vehicles in Australia.
Xtreme Clutch is offering a 230mm twin plate organic and twin plate ceramic upgrade as well as a 270mm twin plate organic. This range of kits has been developed to cater for both high horsepower street vehicles as well as motorsport applications. The range has recently been finalised after testing in tarmac rally competitor, Craig Haysman’s purpose-built Corvette with the installation taking place at the Research & Development facility at Australian Clutch Services (parent company of Xtreme Clutch).
“Our new range of Corvette upgrades are expected to be very popular in the United States and we also expect to see some sales for tuned cars that have been bought out to Australia.” Explains Stewart Furze, Xtreme Clutch Mechanical Engineer, “Removing and installing a performance clutch for these vehicles can be quite involved so it was great to have one at our research & development facility so we could pull this apart and see how we could optimise the clutch setup for improved performance but also how we could make the installation process as simple as possible.”
Xtreme Clutch have recently expanded their range of American based vehicles after the launch of the US based sister brand, XClutch, at the SEMA Show. This includes the addition of a Ford Mustang performance upgrade range, Dodge Viper 8.4L street and motorsport upgrades as well as a range of upgrades for the Hyundai i30/Veloster N.
