Texas Speed pleased to announce the release of RAM Clutches' 12 inch heavy duty replacement and Powergrip sets for LS powered vehicles.
Common complaints with factory LS clutches are an uneven pedal feel that is harder at the top and drops off significantly at the bottom of the pedal, high pedal engagement, and the diaphragm ‘sticking down’ at higher RPM. With this in mind, RAM designed a clutch system that incorporates a lighter pedal effort, higher clamp load pressure plate that provides a smooth, consistent pedal feel all the way down without over centering upon release. Coupled with a premium organic clutch disc using a helix hub center section with double springs, durability and holding power are greatly increased along with eliminating annoying transmission ‘gear rattle’ that can occur with performance clutch hubs.
RAM heavy duty LS sets are designed for use with a flat LS series flywheel, which is also available in both steel and aluminum. Bolt pattern is 10mm for use with dowel pins. The heavy duty systems are priced right to compete with factory ‘LS7’ replacement clutch systems. This clutch will come with a full metallic disc and has a torque rating up to 650 lb. ft. The Ram 12-inch clutch kits are recommended for those cars that will not see any type of track use. If you ever plan on taking your car to any type of race track, Ram recommends their Powergrip, Powergrip HD, or dual disc line of clutches.
