Exclamation Late Model Racecraft's NEW Twin Disc Clutch!!

LMR and RPS clutches have worked together over the past few weeks to come up with our own exclusive clutch line for the new 2010 Camaro SS's. LMR now has the first aftermarket clutches available for shipment today! We decided to go with two different designs. The first one being an organic twin disc that will be able to support 600ft lbs of torque. The second clutch is our BAD BOY Carbon on Carbon billet twin disc clutch capable of holding 900ft lbs of torque. Over the past few weeks we have been testing this new Billet carbon on carbon clutch and I can tell you first hand that this thing drives like a dream for being able to handle such power. You will go through 3 cheap clutches before you even come close to breaking one of these. If anyone has any further questions or wishes to place an order today, please feel free to email me back or just give me a call at the shop. Thanks!

One other advantage is the Carbon/Carbon it is lighter, I don't know the weights of the Organic set up. I have driven many cars with these clutches and they have the best pedal feel out of any other brand and can hold some thrashing.

More importantly how is the pedal feel? Where does the clutch grab? Any chatter?

Yeah defiately pricey. Biggest things are weight, and how they handle the power you put to them. when you upgrade , more hp and tq it will be harder for your clutch to grab and put the car into motion. In a stock application the aftermarket clutch will just last much longer and grab a lot harder when you release it.

Now all we need is a TRULY reliable fix for the hydraulic setup.

I think RAM has a new non-GM design slave cylinder(which is what causes hydraulic issues) and when using an aftermarket master cylinder, might just do the trick.

I know I might sound crazy, but I almost wish they had a mechanical setup so I would never have to worry about bleeding the hydraulics, keeping air out, keeping heat away and making sure the hydraulic seal in the slave cylinder stays where it should...

Definitely pricey I got my aftermarket Stage 3 which can handle 850lbs of torque for $800 along with flywheel.

I understand the advantages of carbon fiber, my family owns a armored truck factory and we like to use some carbon fiber in them because of the strenght and how light they are but $2500 at least for me its way to high and that coming from a guy that spent about 17k including labor on his car.

i dont see how anyone would replace the clutch now in a brand new car unless you burn the clutch, which in that case you should not get manual in the first place. if you know how to drive and do not abuse the car, clutch is supposed to last over 200k miles.

Well, I am not sure what you plan on doing to your vehicle but we already have quite a few cars being shipped to us from all over the country to have our "Punisher 440ci" package installed as well as our Supercharged setups. Both of these packages will be making WELL over 600rwhp. Its a known fact that the factory clutches will NOT hold that kind of hp and torque. When I build a setup for a customer, I do not cut any corners. Yes I would make more money selling these packages with the factoryy clutches and once they burn up I will make the extra money in labor fixing them but that is not the way I do business. My packages come with the best of the best parts so when your car leaves my shop I am 100% confident that you will not have any issues.

Great Job LMR for looking at things from the longterm picture! It takes a total package to create a "super car". Looks like you are making some serious waves.

This cluch set up is as close to stock pedal feel as you can get and there is little to no chatter I have many friends with this set up in vettes and I have driven all of them ranging from 570rwhp to 625 rwhp n/a.

Trust me you will need this clutch, If think about how heavy the car is and you plan on modding it you will need a clutch.

I will probably definately looking into a clutch. I am not too knowledgable about clutches, so any info helps. When I pick up my car it will have at least 530 to the wheels, so we will see how long the stock clutch will last.

Yes you will. These cars are so heavy that when you throw that much hp and tq at them it will only be a matter of time before they start slipping or clutch pedal starts sticking to the floor. Dont get me wrong though, if you do not beat on the car much, the factory clutch will last for a little while. Its all about how you drive it with the hp and tq your car is making.

I hate to bump threads but wondered if a) these are in stock yet and b) if you have any plans for a group buy or intro pricing?

You must have read my mind. We just got done with our brochure for the 2010 Camaro so we will be running specials on a few of our products come our grand opening of our new shop on August 8th. Be looking for group purchase posts sometime next week. Please shoot me a pm if you are interested if I can get the price down on them with a group buy, and also mention which one you are interested in. Thanks!

Yes, these are in stock and ready to ship

Unless you take it to the strip, and add a bunch of mods to the car... the stock will either burn out a lot faster, or just fail... not so good for you quarter miles times...
