Performance Clutch Kits
RAM Clutch systems for Street/Strip performance cars offer several alternatives for the proper blend of performance and driveability for your application. For all out racing, check out the Drag Racing section.
Premium Replacement Clutch Kits
There is a difference! RAM Premium Replacement Clutch sets feature OEM components used by the vehicle manufacturer when your car was built. You get the parts that belong in the car, not some low quality or imported replacement imitation. RAM Premium Replacement sets offer the best level of driveability and durability for your vehicle. Premium Replacement sets are not intended for performance or competition use.
Musclecar Performance Clutch Kits
Musclecar clutch sets are an affordable upgrade from a stock replacement unit, most popular for restoration applications where a slightly better unit is required. Musclecar sets include a higher clamp load pressure plate along with a premium quality 5 or 6 spring double spring hub organic disc. The higher clamp load addresses the higher torque produced by many earlier muscle cars and yet retains a very smooth engagement for low speed driving and cruising. These sets are also ideal for mild bolt on cars that will only see street driving. Sets include pressure plate, clutch disc, release bearing, and alignment tool unless otherwise noted.
HDX Performance Clutch Kits
GREAT DRIVEABILITY AND PERFORMANCE TO 450 HORSEPOWER
The basic RAM concept of clutch performance is simple: Increased clamp pressure is the single most effective way to manage high horsepower or load, especially in street driven performance cars. We purpose build RAM HDX pressure plates with 30% more clamp pressure than stock. The second important feature is smooth, chatter free operation, which we achieve with premium organic composite disc friction material. Also, HDX discs feature our exclusive 8-spring hub assembly for added load capacity. HDX. Great driveability and control for power levels to 450 horsepower. Sets include pressure plate, disc, release bearing, and alignment tool unless otherwise noted.
Powergrip Performance Clutch Kits
MUSCLE CAR PERFORMANCE TO 550 HORSEPOWER
As power levels move up to and beyond 500 horsepower. RAM POWERGRIP meets the challenge with a combination of organic and metallic disc friction surfaces that effectively increase the clutch capacity to the 550 horsepower level. The 8-spring hub is equipped with RAM POLYCOIL damper springs encapsulated in polyurethane. This spring can handle three times the shock load of just the coil spring, and is standard in all RAM competition discs. The RAM Competition pressure plate in this kit provides 30% more clamp pressure than stock, and meets SFI specifications. At this high level of performance RAM POWERGRIP provides surprisingly good driving characteristics with smooth, comfortable driver control. Sets include pressure plate, disc, release bearing, and alignment tool unless otherwise noted.
Powergrip HD Clutch Kits
STREET AND COMPETITION PERFORMANCE TO 650 HORSEPOWER
POWERGRIP HD is a true “strip/street” competition clutch system that can handle the rigors of weekend racing and spirited street driving. This system has the same components as standard POWERGRIP above with the exception that the disc friction surfaces are both sintered metallic. Sintered metallic provides a degree of slippage on vehicle launch to prevent the violent and uncontrollable engagement characteristics of paddle type metallic discs. This firm consistent engagement is easy to control. Some chatter is likely on engagement with rear gearing less than 3.73 in street applications. Each set includes the pressure plate, clutch disc, release bearing, and alignment tool unless otherwise noted. Use Powergrip HD for power levels to 650 horsepower, or lower powered vehicles that see frequent track duty.
Performance Clutch Kits with Flywheel
RAM complete clutch systems are engineered packages designed for each specific application. Our goal is to provide a superior system as a bolt in package that provides a smooth and reasonable pedal effort for great street driveability, along with increased clamp load to address bolt on performance additions. Most packages include a steel flywheel, higher clampload pressure plate, organic or metallic based clutch disc, and pressure plate mounting hardware. For hydraulic release mechanism applications, we have engineered any needed slave spacers into the system and they are included with the package.
