You get lot of convenience and comfort by travelling in your car and getting thrill while you drive on a highway at a top speed, but you didn’t know how were you able to get this thrill. The operation of every automobile vehicle is an integrated activity and performance of various systems fitted in the vehicle that control and regulate rolling movement of vehicle wheels on the roads and under different conditions. clutch kit is one of the vital systems in a vehicle which is an assembly of number of different components that provide it stability and functionality for efficient performance. Clutch which works in combination with a gear system is responsible for streamlined driving of a vehicle
Clutch function in a vehicle
A clutch system is basically a flywheel and clutch plate that works due to friction between the transmission and the engine. A clutch pedal is provided in manual transmission vehicles for its operation. When a foot is pressed on the pedal, it pulls apart the pressure plate from the clutch disc that releases the clutch from the engine and wheels rotate at different speed. There is difference in the automatic transmission where different clutches perform this function, but there is no foot pedal to operate them because the function is automated in the form of torque converter system which connects the engine with the transmission to rotate the wheels. A vehicle with automatic transmission are easier to drive compared to the manual transmission because of elimination of clutch pedal in the former. Sports vehicles and high-speed efficient cars use performance clutch instead of traditional clutch system for top performance.
Why performance clutch is sports cars
Sports cars run at a very high speed and have more friction on the racing tracks for stability and this type of clutch system has high thermal resistance and good performance for longer life. ZF SACHS Germany’s product Sachs performance clutches are best known worldwide for their performance.
