Xtreme Clutch from ACS

The Xtreme Clutch range of twin-plate sprung organic upgrades has proven popular in both the domestic and export markets, with the innovative design offering the ideal solution for driveability in high-powered street applications.
The sprung multi-plate range has evolved over the past two years as Xtreme Performance Clutch continues to incorporate these options into new applications.

The kits were developed in-house at Australian Clutch Services in Adelaide, the home of the Xtreme Clutch brand, and have been extensively tested throughout Australia, Europe and the US. Performance upgrades are available in two sizes: 230mm and 270mm, and both have been specifically developed to suit a variety of vehicle applications and uses.

The 230mm clutch is a race inspired design with lightweight alloy pressure plate available with a flat or rolled tip diaphragm, casting, intermediate plate and chromoly flywheel. This design is available with sprung organic friction discs and floating intermediate plate and is ideally suited to vehicles with limited bellhousing space such as 4-cylinder turbo applications.
The 270mm clutch is perfectly suitable for high-powered V8 applications and incorporates a pressed metal, heavy-duty pressure plate, strap-driven intermediate plate (to minimise noise) and a performance flywheel.
Each kit includes all necessary components for each specific vehicle application, such as concentric slave cylinder or release bearing, pilot bearing, alignment tool and bolts as required. “The sprung organic range of upgrades has already proven very popular with performance tuning groups and our distributor base around the world,” Australian Clutch Services Sales Manager Colin Jevons said.

“The sprung version of these twin plates helps to improve dampening and is ideally suited to daily driven street cars that have far exceeded the capabilities of a single plate upgrade. With a 1000Nm torque capacity and exceptional driveability, these kits are becoming the go-to for many of our performance customers around the world.”
Xtreme Clutch also offers a sprung ceramic 230mm twin-plate upgrade for those using the vehicle for motorsport applications and require a clutch with improved dampening characteristics over traditional, rigid, twin-plate clutch upgrades.
