First to develop 6-1/4 inch circle track clutches – smaller diameter, quicker acceleration
Introduced Carbon-Carbon friction technology to professional clutch systems in 1983, which gave racers a softer engagement off the starting line

Proprietary clutch covers for Mustang and LS applications mean consistent static pressures and uninterrupted delivery to customers
