Inside the all-new WRX ACT Heavy Duty Clutch
The ACT Heavy Duty pressure plate provides approximately 2100 lbs of clamping force. ACT Clutches are designed to reduce deflection and provide maximum bite even in the most rigorous conditions. You can choose from a variety of organic disc, sprung or unsprung puck discs for maximum engagement.
ACT’s Performance Street discs feature premium organic materials with high copper content for better heat transfer and steel-backed lining for greater burst strength and durability. These discs have reduced marcel for faster shift action to complement ACT pressure plates, with increased strength and reliability.
How do I choose the right WRX Clutch?
When picking the right clutch, there’s a few questions you’ll need to ask yourself. Primarily what is the function of your WRX project and do you drive it daily? For daily driving applications and light track usage, the WRX ACT Heavy Duty Clutch is an excellent choice.
For most street applications, you’ll be choosing between the Heavy Duty and the Xtreme Duty Clutches. You can identify these with the HD and XT letters in the part number. For enthusiasts that need more bite, ACT manufactures an XXtreme pressure plate as well that is over the 2900 lb pressure mark.
ACT Heavy Duty Clutch specifications
ACT Heavy Duty Pressure Plates provide increased torque capacity, durability, and extended clutch life. What makes ACT Pressure Plates the highest standard in the industry? First, ACT manufacturing always begins with new units. ACT Pressure Plates are not rebuilt from worn out parts. Second, pressure is increased the right way. Altering the geometry alone is not enough.
ACT diaphragms are heat-treated using an exclusive 3-stage process and the release bearing contact area is hardened to reduce wear. Third, ACT designs the pressure and release travel of the unit to be in the optimum working range. ACT assures consistency and precision by using proven assembly procedures. Every unit ACT produces is accurately balanced and tested.
No guesswork, no hype, only proven engineering and calculated results for every ACT Heavy Duty and Xtreme Pressure Plate. ACT pressure plates are also available in ductile iron, offering strength and safety for high RPM racing.
