Stage 2 Daily: South Bend Stage two clutch is designed with an increased clamp load with little or no increased pedal pressure for vehicles with light HP modifications. The stage two kit introduces an organic disc material with a high metal content that increases the co-efficient of friction two times over a stock lining. The strong organic material features a 12,000 RPM burst point for a higher durability rating. Recommended to be used on a daily driven vehicle that sees mostly street driving and a handful of light track days.
Stage 2 Endurance: The stage two Endurance clutch system features a precision balanced pressure place for a vibration free feel at high RPM's. The pressure plate fulcrum has been altered for a positive disengagement and quicker shift response. South Bend's Dual Dampened disc design is made hybrid with a full face Feramic (Sintered Iron) on the flywheel side and high metal organic lining on the pressure plate side which provides accurate control when acceleration through corners. The Stage Two Endurance clutch is recommended for street driving with an emphasis on Rally and Endurance racing and should be paired with a Single Mass flywheel for its full potential.
Stage 2 Drag: The South Bend stage two Drag clutch features a Heavy Duty Pressure Plate modified for a puck style disc with no cushion between the linings so the overall travel of the clutch pedal is short and quick. The designed puck disc reduces rotational mass and also the total drive surface area while increasing pounds per square inch on the surface of the friction material. The combination of these accelerates the transfer of torque from the engine to the wheels and minimizes overall inertia. South Bend Clutch used Graphite impregnated ceramic friction materials that exceeded all other materials for durability, reduced chatter, overall heat transfer and torque capacity. Recommended for drag racing, drifting and limited street use. This kit requires a Single Mass SFI approved Flywheel to be included with each kit when the original design is Dual Mass.
