Monster Clutch R2-9524 - 97-04 C5 Corvette R Series Twin Discs Clutch Package
"R" stands for "Race" and this setup is no different. The R Series twin disc clutch is rated to 1100 rwhp/rwtq and is a clutch that thrives at the track. These clutches are designed to be driven hard at the track with very little to no street use. 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 sintered based friction discs which allows these setups to hold a tremendous amount of power and abuse without the worry of how it drives on the street. What this translates to is a twin disc clutch that has 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.
These units are designed specifically for the track though they can be driven on the street very little, these are not intended for daily driven applications unless you are absolutely okay with an aggressive clutch that doesn't have a long lifespan. What do we mean by aggressive? It's going to chatter/shudder during take off and will have an on/off feel to it as well as a very heavy pedal effort - this is made worse by lightened flywheel assemblies. We recommend this clutch for any type of power adder in a racing 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.
When installed and broken in properly you should expect it to drive like a race car, there really is no other way of putting this - 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.
