It’s hard to believe that another Thursday is already upon us. If you’re like me, you’ve already planned what you’ll be working on this weekend. If that happens to involve a the clutch in your hot rod, this is for you. This week’s history session revolves around that very subject, as we once again celebrate another editorial throwback and jump into the way back machine. Follow along as we open the Power Automedia vault that houses our vast collection of articles and revisit a great article.

In this Throwback Thursday, I’m taking a step back to October, 2015, to bring you an article that you guys might have either forgotten about, or might not even know exists. Whichever the case, I am certain that you will enjoy this editorial flashback. So, without further ado, let’s take a look back at Friction Science: Choosing The Right Clutch

Clutch

In the original article, We talk about what can happen when overpowering an OE-spec clutch, and with the help of professionals from SPEC, Manta, and Quarter master clutches, we enlighten even the self-proclaimed clutch guru. Our professionals break down the criteria they use when helping enthusiasts decide which clutch is best suited to their particular application. Fort instance, do you know if the best clutch friction material for your ride would be Sintered-Metallic, Organic, Kevlar, or Bronze Metallic? If you read the article, you’ll find out.

You have smoked your clutch and the pressure plate looks bad.

Other frequently asked questions, revolves around the confusion about, “should I use a single or multi-disc clutch? Will an aluminum flywheel make my car perform better?” Once again, those questions get answered in the original article.

Check out the original article. You’ll be glad you did. The improper choice of a clutch assembly can leave you dreading even a Sunday cruise around town. For that reason, I thought this a great piece for this week’s Throwback Thursday flashback. To find out how more, check out, Friction Science: Choosing The Right Clutch.
