Key Features – Xtreme Clutch
01 Diaphragms are induction hardened on the release bearing contact area to reduce wear and promote smooth operation.
02 Cover stampings are sometimes reinforced by ACT to reduce flex and improve the efficiency and feel of the pressure plate.
03 Stronger drive straps and rivets are used when needed to strengthen the pressure plate and prevent breakage.
04 Up to four clamp load ratings are available (some applications) – choose between a Sport, Heavy Duty, Xtreme or MaXX Xtreme pressure plate.
05 We load test every pressure plate on a special computerized testing press for quality assurance. This same machine also assists in designing new products and evaluating parts that are in for service.
06 Proper release travel, clamp load, pedal effort, and working range are analyzed using specialized testing equipment and software.
07 All castings are CNC machined for greater consistency and precision
08 ACT pressure plates feature a special single diaphragm design to dramatically increase clamp load without the adverse affects of double diaphragm type clutches.
09 Precision cover stampings provide rigidity, consistency and are cost effective.
10 Creative diaphragm designs are used to increase clamp load, reduce deflection and maximize clutch life. All diaphragms endure an exclusive four stage heat treating process for unparalleled performance.
11 Most ACT pressure plates are certified as meeting SFI Specification 1.1. and are legal for competition in all racing organizations where SFI certification is required.
12 All ACT pressure plates are dynamically computer balanced for smooth operation at high rpm.
