The flagship model of EXEDY Racing Clutches: the carbon steel multi plate clutches. These clutches are light in weight, durable, and resilient to high heat, contributing to an improvement in track times. These complete bolt on designs require no additional modifications to the vehicle. The carbon materials are back at more than 2000 degrees celsius, which allows the carbon material to dissipate heat far better than conventional metallic material.
The conventional damper used in a sports clutch is designed to protect the transmission from shock torque caused by abrupt clutch engagement, but it does little to absorb vibration. Efficient absorption of engine speed fluctuations requires a very flexible spring and proper setting of the hysteresis torque. The flexibility of the spring, however, is likely to run counter to the damper capacity. This is why CARBON-D is equipped with a new damper that features two stages - a low-load stage and a rapid-acceleration stage, which is perfectly tuned for each car type. The proper adjustment of both damper rigidity and hysteresis torque prevents gear noise in the low-load stage while the new highly rigid spring ensures high-torque operation in the rapid-acceleration stage. This tuning technology is available only from EXEDY, the specialist in clutch systems.
The use of a damper-type center hub provides a considerable improvement by significantly reducing the gear noise (noise from tooth hammer) generated in the transmission and differential gears. At the same time, it absorbs shock torque. CARBON-D is a touching clutch system designed for quiet and comfortable driving because it incorporates the driver's need for meeting-point optimization (toward the floor) without impeding quick response and the carbon-specific half-engaged feeling.
