Power is nothing without control. Weight is enemy of performance, handling and braking.

Oooo that looks great in silver !

So not seen one of these before.... can anyone explain ....

It looks like a motorcycle wet multi plate clutch but it’s not .... well wet.

Some form of drag racing clutch ??? Help !

I know ducatis and some jap market TZR250's run dry clutches and they rattle like a box of broken spanners on tick over n such, but never seen one, so I dunno if its the same set up.

Im not shelling out for one, was just curious....... every day is a school day

Just a triple plate clutch that's all. I ideally could do with one for drag racing as it will help slip a but more but my twin plate will do just fine

What are the friction played made of? I ended up with ceramic Fri tion plate on my fd, it was a light switch, awful to park but it never slipped.
