SMC Vortex Black Three Disc Engine Clutch
The three disc Vortex Black clutch has the greatest heat capacity in the line-up.
Made for the larger engines and / or heavier classes.
Vortex clutches employ modern technologies that virtually eliminate engine bogging. While all other disc clutches attach springs to the pressure plate to control clamping force, Vortex springs are attached to the levers to control centrifugal force. By controlling force where it is generated instead of where it is applied, Vortex clutches react more quickly to changes in engine rpm. Less energy is lost to clutch heating leaving more energy for acceleration. Smoother engagement and faster acceleration are guaranteed!
Vortex clutches are user friendly. The clutch springs are adjusted quickly, easily and precisely without dial calipers. Air gap is not an issue with the Vortex clutch, reducing the amount of adjustments. Clutch rebuilds are inexpensive, simple, and take a matter of minutes using only a T-handle wrench.
Manufactured with 3/4" bore to fit most popular racing engines.
Vortex springs are offered in different rates depending on the rpm
Vortex three disc clutches comes with Gold springs standard. You can use
the selector above to have your clutch equipped, and shipped with the Black
springs installed instead of the Gold springs.
