CPL Racing has been using the Clutchmasters brand of clutches and flywheels for 8 years now on both our customers and our own road and race cars. Whatever your application, from a completely standard car to a full blown racecar, there is a clutch and/or flywheel within the Clutchmasters range to meet your needs.
The Clutchmasters twin plate clutches are the finest and most economical multi-plate clutch systems available on the market today. Clutch Masters Twin Disc systems are pure racing technology that also works well in high performance street applications. They are designed to hold tremendous horsepower and torque ratings, while retaining very smooth operation. By using a smaller diameter clutch assembly, CM TwiN Disc systems have a reduced rotational mass, meaning quicker and smoother shifting and much better throttle response. By slightly increasing the clamping force of the pressure plate and adding to the square inches of usable disc area, CM Twin Discs significantly increase clamping values. The cover assembly is machined from billet aluminum with 25% more tensile strength than the competition's cast unit. They are available in three specific pressure ratings as well as several types of friction surfaces. The flywheel is machined from billet 6061-T6 aluminum and includes a replaceable heat shield.
As used in the CPL Racing drag car which has in excess of 900 bhp.

Historically high performance clutches have been a compromise. While improving holding or clamping pressure manufacturers nearly always increase pedal pressure to an uncomfortable point especially for stop-and-go traffic.
Besides drivebility concerns additional 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.
Today thanks to Clutch Masters increased holding pressure does not necessarily mean increased pedal pressure and the problems that can accompany it. By re-engineering the leverage or fulcrum point on the pressure plate through their Hi-Leveragetm ttechnique Clutch Masters has increased clamping power often without changing pedal pressure.
Excessively increased pedal pressure as found in many of todays traditional high performance clutches places an unsafe amount of pressure on the delicate crankshaft thrust bearing found in most of todays sport compact automobiles. Placing undue stress on the thrust bearing typically causes the bearing to wear prematurely or fail altogether. This failure can lead to catastrophic internal engine damage.
A clutch simply put is a friction device that disengages and engages the engine from the transmission to allow for transition from motionless to movement and for gear changes. For street applications a smooth transition of power is essential while still being able to transfer all the power of the engine to the transmission. As power output of engines increase and demands on clutches become greater - for example high performance street or racing cars - the holding and clamping capacity of a clutch also must increase. This is where Clutch Masters innovative engineering comes into play.
