There are two different kinds of clutches: the softer, lighter clutch and the harder, heavier clutch. The softer clutch makes it easier for you to shift gears and offer a more luxurious style of driving, whereas hard clutches are favoured by specialist, sport drivers that have more need for faster power and speed.
The two basic kinds of clutch upgrades affect different things. The first upgrade increases how much torque the clutch can handle, whilst the second upgrade type reduces the overall weight. Upgrading the clutch will also upgrade the holding power of your car, so if you have plans to improve on your vehicle’s horsepower than a clutch upgrade is a must. Many people think that changing their clutch will give you extra power, but this is not true. Instead, changing the clutch will help you to take better advantage of the power you already have. Upgrading your clutch might benefit further from an upgrade or change to the flywheel as well; for example, a combination of a light clutch and a lighter flywheel will make a noticeable difference to the speed of the motors revs but may also have a negative impact on the car’s driveability. Consult an LK Performance specialist to see what sort of upgrade is right for your car.
