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.
