Stage 3 Daily: South Bend stage three Daily clutch package is designed for high horsepower vehicles desiring performance similar to OE Clutch Kits. The pressure plate is Race Engineered and SFI approved with significant load increase over the stage one and two pressure plates (+600-800 lbs.). The Stage three clutch has an increased pedal feel of 20%-25%. South Bend Clutch discs are assembled in factory with heat-treated wear resistant hubs, drive plates and springs for high load transfer and dependable and durable operation. The sprung disc centers in conjunction with the marcel fin between the linings create a dual dampening effect that simulates an OEM start performance. A Performance Organic friction material with a high metal content increases torque and RPM capability and maintains low operating temperatures which reduces wear and prolongs clutch life. Recommended for daily driving, spirited street and occasional track and for use with a single mass flywheel when original design is a Dual Mass Flywheel
Stage 3 Endurance: South Bend Stage three Endurance kit uses the same Race Engineered SFI approved pressure plate as stage 3 daily package. The have designed the disc for the special needs of a vehicle with circuit racing in mind. The Stage Three Endurance kit is designed with Kevlar friction material for its unique static to dynamic ratios of friction co-efficient at high energy levels, which means a perfect transition from one gear to the next. Friction discs are assembled with high performance components and equipped with torsion springs to function as a damper between engine and gearbox. This clutch kit is recommend for Rally, endurance race, clubsport, auto-cross, street and daily. For use with a single mass flywheel when original design is a Dual Mass Flywheel for optimal
Stage 3 Drag: South Bend Drag racing clutch package is built to handle heavily modified cars and designed to function according to the specific needs and abuse of the 1/4 and 1/8 mile track. The pressure plate is SFI approved Race Cover engineered to disengage with less pedal travel, ultimately shortening the shift time to produce faster numbers down the drag strip. The Friction discs have a puck design, which will reduce the rotational mass and are assembled with all high carbon components for maximum strength. South Ben uses Graphite impregnated Ceramic friction material perfectly suited for drag racing due to its maximum friction co-efficient, rapid heat dissipation and abrupt engagement characteristics. Requires a Single Mass Steel Flywheel to be included with each kit when the original design is Dual Mass Flywheel. Recommended for drag racing, pulling, drifting.
