Face Street / Strip Discs
6 pad Copper Ceramic Race Discs
6 pad Copper Ceramic Race Discs
Duty Pressure Plates
Organic, spring center replacement disc designed for smooth engagement,
quiet operation and improved durability. We offer the best brands
and type for the application. Some OE Street Clutch discs can be used
with moderate to heavy duty applications including racing depending
on torque output and heat. When a Performance OrganicOE disc is available
the suffix "S" will appear in the disc part number. These discs use
special performance linings that are designed to withstand high heat
and high RPM. When the suffix "M" appears, the disc has been modified
by reducing the marcel enabling quicker action. With all the hype
about different lining materials available we still contend that nothing
can beat a good quality full face organic disc for street use. This
same clutch performance lining is available for several applications
where there is a particular need.These clutch discs take a lot of
abuse and yet engage smoothly.
These pads (pucks, buttons) are solidly mounted, highly durable and
resistant to heat. They actually perform better when hot! The copper
ceramic material holds approximately 32% more torque than an organic
lining. Copper ceramic discs engage fairly harsh and are not normally
recommended for street use. The high copper content of the material
helps to absorb heat and reduce the temperature of the mating parts.
Shifting is quick and sure due to the lightweight rigid design. No worries
about broken center sections or springs. 6 pad discs are recommended
for larger sizes to absorb more heat and for smoother engagement.

Great holding power, better 60ft & 1/4 mile times,
and long life are all benefits that come along with these plates.
What makes our ACT Clutch pressure plates the highest standard of
the industry? First, we start off with new units. We do not offer
rebuilds (except for special circumstances or warrantee work). Second,
we increase the pressure the right way: by changing the diaphragm.
Our clutch diaphragms are specially heat treated through an exclusive
3 stage process and then hardened on the clutch release bearing contact
area to reduce wear. Third, we make sure that the pressure curve and
release travel of the unit is in the right working range. Forth, we
use proven assembly procedures that insures consistency and precision.
Finally, we accurately balance and test every clutch Kit we offer
No guesswork, no hype, only proven engineering and calculated results.
The maximum holding power available! Our solution: apply more diaphragm
pressure. With a less aggressive street disc, this makes a great combination
for high HP street cars that prefer smooth engagement. For racing,
combine our ACT Clutch Xtreme Pressure Plate with our Xtreme Disc
for the ultimate in torque capacity and durability. What makes these
ACT Clutch units so unique is a radical increase in pressure without
altering the proper geometry or stacking of diaphragms. The result
is maximum holding pressure and long life, while maintaining good
release clearance for fast, clean shifting. This can only be done
with a specially engineered diaphragm. On some units, like the one
shown above, we actually include gusseting the cover to reduce flex
caused by the the high pressure. These clutches are made with the
same high standard as our heavy duty pressure plates. You will find
these on many of the fastest cars on the track. How do they feel?
A little stiff, but smooth! Xtreme Pressure Plates can be identified
throughout the application chart when the pressure plate number is
followed by a suffix "X".
