Monster SC Series Triple Disc Clutch Rated to 1500 RWHP/RWTQ for the Pontiac G8 GXP
The “big brother” to the SC Series twin, the SC Series triple utilizes the same technology but has the added bonus of being able to hold up to 1,500 rwhp/rwtq! We start by using a factory GM LT1 based pressure plate setup and modify the lift/release as well as plate load to increase performance. We add a very beefy floater plate that won’t warp and leave you fighting release issues, and include our proprietary ceramic based lightweight friction discs that allow it to hold more power and abuse while keeping the rotational mass at a minimum – this translates to better high rpm release and happier transmission internals. These units have all the designed benefits of a factory unit with the ability to take serious abuse and generate a clean release with all GM factory based hydraulics to 7,500 rpm! We wrap these assemblies up using our patent-pending CNC machined billet steel flywheel to convert them to work in numerous applications – all of these units are balanced to less than 0.100 OZ/IN at no additional charge.
While these are great for the abuse and extreme driving conditions, these are not going to drive perfectly in daily driven applications. What do we mean? It’s going to occasionally chatter/shudder during take-off and will have a slight on/off feel to it – this is a necessary byproduct of a clutch that will hold an honest 1,500 rwhp/rwtq. We recommend this clutch for any type of power adder in a racing or aggressive street application as long as you’re within the power rating of the clutch – this provides an excellent clutch for those looking to hold big power and abuse. These units not only work on the street, they are very much at home at the drag strip with numerous recorded low 8 second passes, as well as the road course/HPDE/autocross track which allows you to take advantage of the reduced MOI and excellent high rpm release you can rest easy knowing they are up for the task, and will still get you home.
When installed and broken in properly you should expect slight amounts of chatter/shudder and a slight on/off engagement with factory pedal effort – the only exception to this is if you are using an aftermarket master cylinder as the larger displacement will increase pedal effort and reduce the engagement window.
