Mazda South Bend Stage 3 Clutch Kits

Recommended for single mass flywheel (SMF) when original design is DMF. This clutch package is designed for high HP vehicles desiring a start performance similar to O.E. The pressure plate is Race Engineered (SS) and SFI approved with significant load increase over stage 1,2 pressure plates (+600-800 lbs.). Expect a pedal effort increase of 20%-25%. Discs are assembled with heat-treated wear resistant hubs; drive plates and springs for high load transfer and dependable operation. The sprung centers on the disc in conjunction with the marcel fin between the linings create a dual dampening effect that simulates O.E. start performance. A Performance Organic friction material with a high metal content increases torque and RPM capability and maintains low operating temperatures which reduces wear and glazing. Recommended usages are daily, spirited street and occasional track.

Recommended for single mass flywheel (SMF) when original design is DMF to achieve optimal performance. This kit uses the same Race Engineered SFI approved pressure plate as stage 3 daily package. The disc is designed for the special needs of a vehicle with circuit racing in mind. Kevlar friction material is used for its unique static to dynamic ratios of friction co-efficients at high energy levels. This translates to a perfect transition from one gear to the next. Discs are assembled with only performance components and equipped with torsion springs functioning as a damper between engine and gearbox. Recommend usages are Rally, endurance race, clubsport, autocross, street and daily.

Drag racing requires a Single Mass Steel Flywheel to be included with each kit when the original design is Dual Mass Flywheel. This clutch package is built to handle heavily modified cars and designed to function according to the specific needs of the and 1/8th mile track. The pressure plate for this kit is SFI approved Race Cover engineered to disengage with less pedal travel shortening the shift time. Discs are a puck design, which reduces rotational mass and are assembled with all high carbon component pieces for maximum strength. The friction material used is Graphite impregnated Ceramic perfectly suited for drag racing because of its maximum friction co-efficient, rapid heat dissipation and abrupt engagement characteristics. Recommended uses are drag, pulling, drifting.

Race Engineered Pressure Plates (SS) used in Stage 3 and 4 clutch kits:
These performance clutches deliver more transmittable torque and stability, longer life and superior thermal resistance. They also deliver noticeably better dynamics through higher clamp load when driving the vehicle to its limits.

Flywheel Features:
Flywheels manufactured by SBC are made from low carbon, hot rolled steel that is highly resistant to warping and perfectly suited for the friction materials mated to them. Single mount CNC machining guarantees precise tolerances and perfect balance exceeding O.E. specifications. Extensive field testing has been done to determine the proper weight for each specific vehicle and to ensure smooth operation, safety and durability under extreme operating conditions.

908/29/2007EclipseThe clutch is VERY NICE! Feels great during city driving...haven't tried the track yet, gotta let me internals settle in from my rebuild. Feels just like stock with a little added pressure near the end. VERY SMOOTH engagement/disengagement. A little clutch chatter in traffic and sitting at idle, but what you expect from a racing clutch setup? Overall great product! Thanks HPF and SBC!!
706/06/2007Protegethe clutch kit was a definate improvement over stock, concidering that i turbocharged the vehicle. though it was said it could withstand 300 pound feet of torque, the dxd series clutch still slips. what can you do. the car is custom, and your bound to run into this sort of thing often. i do wonder if they make a presure plate with even more clamping force though. if so, i would purchase one on the spot. other than the slippage, the functionality of the clutch is well rounded for daily driving, and the occasional boosted pull.
1010/23/2006MR2Best clutch i have ever owned. Miles above my previous ACT. Amazing feel HPfreeks great service!
909/01/2005SupraI wanted a clutch that would handle 550HP, have a smooth engagement, be quiet and a clutch pedal that was not heavy. This clutch did all this. I would recommend it to anyone. My previous clutch's were the RPS Blue (pedal far too heavy) and the Tilton carbon, carbon (soft pedal, but very noisy. If you want the ultimate road car clutch this is the one to use.
1005/10/20053000GTGreat clutch for the great car! Feramic is awesome!
910/20/2004A4The clutch and flywheel function flawlessly. There is a marked improvement in driveablility over the Audi factory clutch. The combination easily handles the turbo upgrade on my 1.8t. My only complaint is that the flywheel mount required a little encouragement from a file in order to fit.
806/15/2004SupraI bought this along with a 11 lb Unorthodox FW. This combo definitely hates traffic (chatters). But, when you put the power to it, it holds like crazy. I was able to chirp the tires shifting from third to fourth at 90 mph while only boosting 10.5 psi.
1006/08/20043000GTIgive you guys an A+++, shipping was quick. The part fit flawlessly, It will jerk a knot in your neck.
