KY Clutch - Official Release!
 
KY Clutch and Turbo Tech Racing teamed up to bring the best clutch kits to the market!

KY is gathering photos now, we will upload each one, to each product as we receive. :twothumbs



Full Face Disc Topic:
KY will not currently be offering a full face disc option for the Stage 2, 3, and 4. Reason being is as stated in the "interest thread" the pressure per SQ IN, on a full face disc is so much less than a puck design. A full face disc option on a high torque application will not hold properly. As to why there is not one on the market today.

Please also reference this post (Start at #53):

Sure we can ask but 6 is most common IMO.

Chevycobaltss3 01-12-2012 03:01 PM

This is part of the full disc design with pucks. I may try t get a steam boat rolling on this but the issue is material costs. So we are gonna try

vahdyx 01-12-2012 03:07 PM

I don't think I want one.

Unless this happens

Chevycobaltss3 01-12-2012 03:19 PM

Vadhyx, no one makes a full face design that'll hold the Tq. Which is why pucked style is preffered, we are gonna try our best though.

This is true, KY stated it would take 4-6 months though.

Ok here is a pic of a full faced disc that another vendor sales. main reason it went out is due to glazing because it is not meant for a high Tq load ... Once I was able to take it to ky clutch we tested it out and the material was cracking, and the rivets were coming loose. Notice the one on the cement, it is the other brand and not ky clutch. The ky clutch is the pucked style.


Most failed clutches are due to improper installs but also improper clutch ..

Dart_SI 01-12-2012 03:37 PM

Glazing is due from improper break in, install, or driving, unless the clutch was rated for well below the tq the owners car is making. . And u can unglazed a clutch easily, just takes some time.

Chevycobaltss3 01-12-2012 04:00 PM

Dat u are correct, which is why full faced clutches are hard to hold Tq. Now the above given example is the closest thing you will get to a full faced clutch . But that clutch setup won't hold more then 300ish ft lbs

09BlueBaltSS 01-12-2012 04:14 PM

Isn't zzp clutch a full face?

Chevycobaltss3 01-12-2012 04:36 PM

As stated there is not one full face disc that will hold to Tq that the Lnfs put out. The clutch posted in pic above is a southbend stage three I beleive.

JacBlackSS/TC 01-12-2012 04:39 PM

i wonder which stage of ky i have now

Most likely stage 2 or 3.

3 will have ceramic on both sides, where as 2 will have kevlar on one side of the disc and ceramic on the other side.

Stage 3 will have a higher load pressure plate also.

vahdyx 01-12-2012 05:22 PM

What does a Vette use? Just curious, because they can slip easily and hold a lot of Torque. All I care about is being able to slip it like ZZPs is claimed to do.

06_ion2 01-12-2012 06:21 PM

TOB/slave is 9k on the stage 4 2.2/2.4

chitala383 01-12-2012 06:26 PM

Woohoo! I'm probably gonna need a clutch by the end of the year.

Chevycobaltss3 01-12-2012 06:30 PM

Because it is a twin disc clutch!

Chevycobaltss3 01-12-2012 06:31 PM

And also there pressure plate clamping lbs is 2500+

Chevycobaltss3 01-12-2012 06:37 PM

It all depends on year and how large the friction disc is.. what the issue is with the balts is surface area .... we have a small surface area which is why its hard to get a full face disc to hold the power.

Is that to much? :lol:

J.K. Thanks for pointing that out, the "." never made it in there. It is fixed now.

AndrewSS/TC 01-12-2012 06:49 PM

is the stage 4 just extremely annoying and thats why its not recomended for daily driving?

It has In OR Out engagement... It will hold whatever you throw at it though. :guns:

It can be on the street, but it will not be the most friendly at stop lights.

If you are under 475 torque, get the stage 3 and be happy :)
