SPEC products feature Clutch Kits From street kit Stage 1,2,2+, 3, and 3+ to Race Kits Stage 4 and 5 as follows:

Stage 1: Street, Drag, Drift, Road Race, Rallye, Pulling, Autocross

Features an integrally molded carbon kevlar-based, high performance organic lining that offers smooth engagement and excellent life. Best for street and many track/off-road applications.

Stage 2: Street, Drag, Pulling, Autocross

Features segmented or full faced pure Kevlar disc with steel backing. This lining features excellent drivability like the stage 1, but offers slightly longer life and higher torque capacity.Best for street, drag, pulling and autocross.

Stage 2+: Street, Drag, Pulling, Autocross

Features a multi-friction disc in a full faced configuration with carbon semi-metallic on one side and Kevlar on the other. Bridging the gap between stage 2 and stage 3, the 2+ offers drivability and engagement quality characteristic of the stage 2, but with a 15-20% higher torque capacity. The hub is double sprung with spring cover relieves for flexibility and heat treated components for strength and durability. Great for street, drag, autocross, road racing, pulling, rallye and drift.

Stage 3: Street, Drag, Pulling, Autocross

Features a carbon semi-metallic 6 puck sprung or unsprung hub disc that has been the leading puck clutch in drivability, life and torque capacity. This unit is designed for street and race cars that require an aggressive but streetable engagement and high torque capacity. (sprung version) The hub is double sprung with spring cover relieves for flexibility and heat treated components for strength and durability. Also available in 3 puck configuration. Great for street, drag, road racing, pulling, rallye and drift.

Stage 3+: Street, Drag, Pulling, Autocross

The flagship stage for a high powered street or race car that requires a manageable and friendly engagement, the stage 3+ features a carbon semi-metallic full faced material that offers unparalleled life, friction co-efficient and drivability characteristics in one single package. The hub is double sprung with spring cover relieves for flexibility and heat treated components for strength and durability. Great for street, drag, drift, autocross, road racing, pulling, rallye and drift.

Stage 4: Street, Drag, Pulling, Autocross

This unit is a solid hub version of the stage 3. The hub is solid 8-rivet and the assembly is heat treated for strength and durability. It is available in a 3, 4 or 6 puck configuration. Use the 3 puck for the lightest option or the 6 puck for the smoothest engagement. The 4 puck is a good compromise for both. Street drivable in 6 puck configuration, but not street friendly due to the rigid hub. Best for drag racing, road racing, pulling, rallye and drift.

Stage 5: Street, Drag, Pulling, Autocross

Features a full-metallic disc with the highest possible friction co-efficient. Street drivable but not street-friendly. Best for extreme street and drag racing.

We are here to help you find the primo clutch and since are probably “GOOGLING” clutches and have reached this page, then you doubtless have already decided you want a new clutch or new clutch component. The reasons for your search efforts can be myriad; such as not enough friction to hold your clutch and it has started slipping, or you smell a "burning" clutch, or your clutch may not be engaging when you push it in, or you may just be having a hard time pushing the pedal; or, much more gratifying , you are engaging in the wonderful sport of racing or drag racing and know you unequivocally need a high caliber performance clutch. All of the constant shifting that racing demands can be brutal on a clutch and performance drivers respect a clutch that instills confidence in the fact that they can meet the aggressive shifting demands of racing. Only an exceptionally high grade performance clutch can meet those requirements because they are the sole ones that can accommodate the power levels and temperatures inflicted on a clutch when on the track or doing performance driving. Because performance clutches generally utilize heavier springs and premium disc materials you are guaranteed a clutch that has exceptional clamping force and won’t hesitate to grab when it is critical to do so and that it will accomplish this quickly. Never fear, if you are not racing we know you are still entitled to a clutch that is smooth to operate, long lasting and an improvement over most factory installed clutches so that your driving experience is blue-chip. There are some essentials you need to bear in mind when deciding on a performance clutch and we are here to give you some information that you can utilize in making that significant decision.

First know there are three varieties of disk clutches, single (which is probably what you have from the factory) with a single friction disc working the pressure plate and flywheel, dual with an extra friction disc and a set of surfaces labeled a floater, triple discs with three friction discs, with torque capacity increasing with the number of discs from double to nearly two hundred percent. Next, the composition of the material in the clutch is of significant importance and your driving demands play a factor in making this decision. You should seek out the clutch with the latest in technological advances when it comes to disc material since previous clutch disc materials have been eclipsed by the new composites. Then there is the manufacturer and because we have incontrovertible confidence in them we would like to introduce you to SPEC, a inimitable company and one of the foremost designers and fabricators of clutches today, who can accommodate your clutch demands by presenting you with a plentitude of choices.

Merkur

These are some of the items you can find at LMPerformance for your Merkur

The MERKUR, though short-lived (from 1985 to 1989), has its own club, The MERKUR Club of America, for those who have an affinity for the car and are anxious to improve it for racing or street use and LMPERFORMANCE wants to help you get the parts you need for a better performing MERKUR whether it be a Scorpio or XR4Ti to upgrade your clutch and shocks.

When the power levels or temperatures experienced by your MERKUR Scorpio and your MERKUR XR4Ti clutch system exceed the levels at which the stock clutch disc can operate you need a performance clutch and this can occur when your clutch is getting excessive use and too much heat that over time will begin to fail to grab resulting in it only getting warmer. As the disc temperature rises, it works less and less, until finally failing. SPEC, the eminent manufacturer of street high performance and racing clutches and flywheels designs kits in Stage 1,2,2+, 3, and 3+ to Race Kits Stage 4 and 5 for different driving conditions whether it be every day driving or racing and there is one designed specifically for your MERKUR car. The materials in the SPEC clutch will outperform the material in your factory clutch because they use high quality materials like molded carbon KEVLAR based high performance lining or KEVLAR discs with steel backing for strength and durability. The clutch pressure plate will have a greater clamping force so that it generates more torque capacity than your stock pressure plates. The SPEC flywheel and flywheel friction plate for your MERKUR XR4Ti are designed for specific driving environments and your car's reaction to changing in rotational mass so they can be used for a variety of driving situations. The SPEC flywheel is manufactured from only the highest quality steel and aluminum and to a remarkable .001 machine tolerance for a flat seating surface, balance and optimal engine life and the Aluminum Flywheels are usually half the weight of stock steel flywheels enabling faster revving, less drag on the engine, and quicker response.

A working set of shocks successfully lessens the wear of your suspension, wheels, and tires and in situations -- such as racing or off road driving -- your MERKUR XR4Ti requires shocks that are built for significantly greater impact dampening. Upgrading your shocks can provide a variety of benefits, ranging from better vehicle stability, to improved control, and in some cases, a smoother ride. The KONI MERKUR XR4Ti Sport Yellow Shock is one of their specialties and this product focuses on exceptional road holding and handling besides giving a reasonable level of driving comfort and they can also be used with spring kits to lower a vehicle up to 35mm. The Koni Sport Yellow Shock has external rebound adjustment on most cars to offer you the ability to adjust the shocks to suit your driving pleasures and they can be rebuilt for custom vehicle setups. They come with a lifetime warranty because Koni knows they have manufactured a product you can trust.
