Monster SC Series Twin Disc Clutch Rated to 1000 RWHP/RWTQ for the Pontiac G8 GXP
The SC Series twin disc clutches are designed to hold up to 1,000 rwhp/rwtq and not destroy your bank account. We start by using a factory GM LT1 based pressure plate setup and modify the lift/release as well as plate load to increase performance. We do this and replace the carbon organic frictions with our proprietary ceramic based friction discs which allow these setups to hold a tremendous amount of power and abuse while keeping the driving somewhat civil. What this translates to is a twin-disc clutch that has all the designed benefits of a factory unit with the ability to take serious abuse and generate a clean release with all GM factory based hydraulics to 8000 rpm! We wrap these assemblies up using our patent pending CNC machined billet steel flywheel to convert them to work in numerous applications – all of these units are balanced to less than 0.100 OZ/IN at no additional charge.
While these are great for the abuse and extreme driving conditions, these are not intended for daily driven applications unless you are absolutely okay with an aggressive clutch. What do we mean by aggressive? It’s going to chatter/shudder during take-off and will have an on/off feel to it – this is made worse by lightened flywheel assemblies. We recommend this clutch for any type of power adder in a racing or aggressive street application as long as you’re within the power rating of the clutch – this provides an excellent budget based unit for those looking to hold big power and abuse without breaking the bank. These units not only work on the street, they are very much at home at the drag strip with numerous recorded low 9 second passes, as well as the road course/HPDE/autocross track which allows you to take advantage of the reduced MOI and excellent high rpm release you can rest easy knowing they are up for the task, and will still get you home.
When installed and broken in properly you should expect moderate chatter/shudder and an on/off engagement with factory pedal effort – the only exception to this is if you are using an aftermarket master cylinder as the larger displacement will increase pedal effort and reduce the engagement window.
