For decades now, the Fidanza team has supplied the world with the best in high performance products. They’ve put their race heritage into each and every one of goods, from aluminum flywheels to CV shafts. However, it just seemed as though something was missing. What was it? The other half of the equation, clutches. Fidanza's new line of performance clutches is just what the clutch market has been needing and asking for. These are it. The perfect compliment to Fidanza flywheels, decades in the making.
Which plate do I use? How much clamp load do I need? Do I need four or six pads and should they be carbon or Kevlar®? It’s tough to know if you're making the right choice when it comes to selecting a clutch kit. Most of the time you won’t know until you get it installed. That's all changed! The Fidanza catalog is easy to read. Their clutch kits are complete and make for an easy decision based on your vehicle and your driving habits. You get it right the first time. No more having to figure out which disc goes with which pressure plate. No more wondering why you have to spend extra money to get a new throw out bearing or other needed components.
Fidanza knows that not all vehicles are the same and not all drivers look for the same thing when purchasing a clutch. For this reason, the company offers four different levels of performance. From the mild to the wild. They’ve got the right clutch to suit your style. It’s all there. When purchasing one of Fidanza clutches you only need to know one part number, that’s it. Find the application you need, the level you want and you get it all, the pressure plate, the disc, the throw out bearing, and the pilot tool. Wanna make it a combo? Add a lightweight aluminum flywheel.
Fidanza clutches are designed for peak performance and they’ve made them extremely easy to purchase. Peak performance comes from engineering partnerships that allow the company access to design and manufacturing capabilities that until now have been absent from the after-market. The ability to use the latest equipment, the best engineers, and real world testing allows Fidanza to offer clutch designs with OE quality and aftermarket performance. They have partnerships with other top engineers. Access to the latest and greatest equipment and software.
Keep in mind that Fidanza clutches are born from performance materials and parts. This makes their clutches a cut above all the other manufacturers who assemble original equipment materials and parts and then label it as a performance product.
When reading this graph right to left you will see that a new disc has a clamp load of 1550 lbf. Which, if left alone, gradually gains in clamp load as it gets used. Eventually it will achieve peak performance. To claim that they have the highest clamp load, other clutch companies thin the disc to that specific point of peak performance (1650 lbf). However, unlike the new disc it does not gain clamp load. It loses it, until failure has rapidly occurred. Fidanza clutches not only have a higher clamp load, they get stronger as they wear. So not only do you get a stronger clutch, you get a clutch that will last.
Give them a steel backing and you have the most durable, longest lasting street clutch available. Fidanza has engineered their torsion damper and marcel cushion to engage smoothly yet quickly. Perfect for the daily drivers. They recommend this disc to those who drive their vehicle every day, in all conditions.
This is one mean clutch. Your footwork better be good, it’s no walk in the park. Just because it has a torsion damper like the Three Point Two, it doesn’t mean it drives like it. Those are ceramic buttons attached to that puck. They provide quite a grip upon engagement. That means power is planted straight to the pavement. Don’t be scared though, it’s not going to give you a larger left leg. Just quicker engagement.
