As the title would suggest looking for everyone's experience our thoughts on the use of a double grey clutch diaphragm in high performance mini race cars , Understanding that C-AEG843 double Grey 's have not been available for some time , what are the other options apart from going the RTS verto clutch path

Cheers Mal

Have you spoken to Matt Read?
He was doing some interesting stuff to increase clamping pressure on the diaprhagm clutch.

Hi Mal
Just set the grey dot up so the spring is flat when all bolted down that will handle 200HP +
