About Clutch Masters

LMPerformance offers its customers Clutch Masters clutch systems for several reasons and gives its customers the best possible price with Free shipping. Clutch Masters clutches are true High Performance, aftermarket clutch kits and are among the most technologically superior systems on the market. Because Clutch Masters clutch systems have over 28 years of experience they have been able to research hundreds of friction materials. Clutch Masters aftermarket clutch kits use only the best materials available and has developed a line of clutches that provide outstanding performance even under the worst conditions.

Many of today's traditional high performance aftermarket clutch kits cause excessively increased pedal pressure. The people at Clutch Masters know this places an unsafe amount of pressure on the delicate crankshaft thrust bearing found in most of today's sport compact automobiles. The design team at Clutch Masters knows placing undue stress on the thrust bearing typically causes the bearing to wear prematurely or fail altogether, leading to internal engine damage.

Clutch Masters knows pedal pressure can adversely affect stock clutch linkage and cause premature thrust bearing wear, leading to missed shifts, damaged clutch components and even engine destruction. Clutch Masters clutch system is unique in the industry in that Clutch Masters uses Hi-Leverage tm technology in Clutch Master's pressure plates to significantly increase clamping force with no unnecessary increase in pedal pressure. Clutch Masters discs are designed either with reduced Marcel or a solid hub design to take advantage of Clutch Masters Hi-Leverage tm pressure plate. Because Clutch Masters has re-engineered the leverage or fulcrum point on the pressure plate through their Hi-Leverage tm technique, Clutch Masters has increased clamping power, often without changing pedal pressure.

Regardless of the reason you are searching for a clutch, whether it is because your old clutch is sticking or slipping or you will be racing and feel the need for a new clutch to help you on the track, the team at LMPERFORMANCE wants to offer you the best and we can do that with Clutch Master because of their expertise and dedication to quality. They have accomplished this through innovation in design and engineering and in the way they produce their products with such things as how they increase clamp load. They have discovered a more accurate way of heat-treating the diaphragms so that they retain a consistent clamping force and for their FX500 and Multiple Disc clutch they utilize two processes, one for each diaphragms with a unique friction-reducing product between the two so that the clutching process is smooth. To further their goal of increasing pressure but retaining the ease of clutch pressure they moved the pressure plate leverage ring closer to the pivot point, a method that is unique in the industry. Take a look at the Clutch Master clutches and fly wheels for everything from a Acura to a Volkswagen and for every car in between on the LMPERFORMANCE web site and find the one that will make a difference in how your car performs.

Clutch Masters Flywheels

chromoly.jpgClutch Masters Flywheels are designed and tested to ensure the safety and quality of every flywheel. Years of R&D has given us the knowledge and firsthand experience to choose wisely the best material to manufacture flywheels that will surpass your expectations. Depending on the application, the majority of Clutch Masters flywheels are made from 6061 T6 Billet Aluminum, 1045 or 4140 Billet Steel. Clutch Masters Flywheels are SFI Certified meeting performance standards for the automotive and motorsport industry. ♦

Benefits of a Clutch Masters Light Weight flywheel:

  • Light-weight for improved performance and Quicker Rev’s.
  • (Aluminum Flywheels) Consist of a replaceable heat shield (friction surface), eliminating need to resurface flywheel.
  • Reduces turbo “lag” in turbo-charged engines.
  • Increased supercharger efficiency due to less drag on the crank.
  • Improved mid-range torque in naturally aspirated engines.
  • CNC Machined and balanced.
  • SFI Certified.

♦Replacing your OEM flywheel with a light weight flywheel may cause gear noise or a vibration that may not be suitable for everyone. The lighter the flywheel the more gear noise will be produced. Depending on the application Clutch Masters usually recommends Steel flywheels rather than Aluminum flywheels since Aluminum flywheels will cause more gear noise. Aluminum flywheels are usually only recommended for race applications looking to have the least amount of weight as possible. A light weight flywheel may affect the life expectancy of a clutch kit depending on the application.

Going from a Dual-Mass Flywheel (DMF) to a Single-Mass Flywheel (SMF):

A Dual Mass Flywheel (DMF) is a flywheel in two concentric parts or two facing flywheels stuck together with flexible compound to damp down transmitted vibration and gear rattle for the gear box. Many newer model vehicles now come standard with a factory DMF. Many times enthusiast choose to replace a DMF with a SMF and here is why:

  • DMF’s tend to be more expensive than a SMF.
  • DMF’s are not designed to be resurfaced like conventional SMF.
  • DMF’s usually weigh 30+ lbs depending on the application which will cause unwanted turbo lag.
  • DMF’s cannot withstand a high rate of abuse and may fail under spirited driving.

Benefits of switching to a SMF:

  • Reduced mass equals increased acceleration.
  • Reduces turbo “lag” in turbo-charged engines.
  • Increased supercharger efficiency due to less drag on the crank.
  • Improved mid-range torque in naturally aspirated engines.
  • SMF are able to be resurfaced and can be reused.

*** Clutch Masters offers Aluminum or Steel SMF depending on the application. We recommend you replace your DMF with a Steel SMF if the vehicle will be driven on the street since it will produce less noise and will be more pleasant to drive on the street compared to an Aluminum SMF. Aluminum flywheels are only recommended for race applications looking to have the least amount of weight as possible. By replacing a DMF with a SMF you may experience gear rattle and a vibration that may not be suitable for everyone. SMF may also reduce the life expectancy of a clutch kit depending on the application.

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

The Ford Motor Company, founded by Henry Ford on June 16, 1903 and based in Dearborn, Michigan, is an American automaker and the world's fifth largest automaker based on worldwide vehicle sales. It is one of the most profitable companies in the world, as well as being one of the few to survive the Great Depression and it is the largest family-controlled company in the world, having been in continuous family control for over 110 years. Ford now encompasses two brands: Ford and Lincoln. Late Model Performance can provide parts for 54 models of these American icons whether for street use, racing or off-road the answer to your quest is here.

The quintessential Mustang is well represented at Late Model Performance with a capacious array of parts for chassis and suspension, drive train and transmission, electronics and tuners, interior and exterior accessories, engine components, exhausts, gauges, lighting and induction parts. With body kits from Street Scene, 3dCarbon, RK Sport, Xenon, DURAFLEX, Couture, Carbon Creations the proud Mustang owner has a wide array of types of kits to choose from. The first thing you need to do is decide on the type of material whether fiberglass, polyurethane, ABS plastic, carbon fiber and composite. Polyurethane parts, like the ones manufactured by 3dCarbon, Xenon, Couture and RK Sport, are heavier than fiberglass, not necessarily ideal for racing if weight reduction is the main objective; plus, specialized preparation is required for paint to adhere correctly and it is susceptible to warping under extreme heat. It is; however, extremely flexible, virtually unbreakable and resistant to abrasion and temperature, oil, gasoline and other solvents. Carbon fiber parts, like the one available from the renowned manufacturer Carbon Creations, are ideal for racing because of their extreme strength and light weight; plus, they come clear-coated and don't need to be painted. The significant downside to carbon fiber is its higher cost of production resulting in a more expensive product. The composite creation by Extreme Dimensions, DURAFLEX, is an excellent choice because it is a unique blend of flex resins, fiberglass and plastic that is much stronger than fiberglass and has maximum flexibility; and additionally, it comes with a black primer finish for ease of painting.

Bumping up the horsepower on your Mustang just makes sense and Late Model Performance can help you do that with PYPES’ Exhaust systems, one of the paramount manufacturers of exhaust systems on the market for price and superior quality. PYPES' Mustang exhaust products are made of stainless steel materials for quality and durability and PYPES crossover pipes include dual 409 stainless reinforcement plates at the welds where they are needed most and all pipes are mandrel bent, to allow for the maximum flow of exhaust gasses, which boosts acceleration. With the conjunctive Crossover design it is not unusual to see an increase of anywhere between fifteen and twenty-five HP. A straight path is afforded by the Open Port Exhaust when it is uncapped; however, but you still benefits from the crossover technology and can expect between ten to fifteen HP. An options that is available on this system is the PYPES PYPE Bomb which utilizes a unique louvered core resonated dual wall 304 stainless tip to give you that American Muscle Car sound but not that popping associated with other lesser kits.

The Loudmouth Exhaust by SLP Performance has transformed many cars like the CAMARO SS into modern muscle machines and you can do that too for your Ford car whether it is a CAMARO or not. The exceptional properties; such as exceptional flow characteristics, lighter weight, ease of installation, stainless steel in its entirety and hand-polished dual wall tips in addition to its incredible sound make it an easy choice when thinking about a performance exhaust system.

Another undisputable winner, B&B (Billy Boat) produces a variety of exhaust systems for your Ford, whether it be a Crew Cab, Super Cab, F-150, Expedition or the Mustang. You can be assured of top quality and performance with a B&B exhaust since they are manufactured using the highest yet most practicable quality stainless steel and are engineered to exact specifications when mandrel bent so that you will have undisturbed air flow.
