Monster SK Series Triple Disc Clutch Rated to 1300 RWHP/RWTQ for the Pontiac G8 GXP
The “big brother” to the SK Series twin, the SK Series triple utilizes the same technology but has the added bonus of being able to hold up to 1,300 rwhp/rwtq! 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 – all while leaving the pedal effort 100% factory. With the addition of our Kelvar™ material, this allows us to move the power rating up 150 hp/tq from the carbon organic S series and give customers another option at this common power rating. We add a very beefy floater plate that won’t warp and leave you fighting release issues – this translates to better high rpm release and happier transmission internals. These units have 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 7000 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.
Long life, great performance, and factory driving characteristics are all things you can expect from the SK Series triple disc clutches. While they will absolutely take a tremendous amount of abuse the only thing we don’t recommend with the SK Series triple is drifting. The rigours of drifting do not do well with full-faced frictions, beyond that we highly recommend them for all other usages as long as you’re within the power rating. These units not only thrive on the street where stop and go traffic are just as easy as driving a factory car, they also do great at the drag strip with numerous recorded 8 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 factory smooth operation and no chatter with a factory pedal effort and engagement feel – 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.
