Textralia, Inc.
(866) 874-3650

Brief Description: The Oz700 Series is the answer for LS-Series Corvettes. From effortless, non-shudder bumper-to-bumper traffic right up to that mid-1.4-second 60-foot blast, this clutch delivers the goods. The components within our clutch assemblies have been perfectly matched, digitally machined, and zero balanced for instant use. The pressure plate houses a specifically designed, high-leverage diaphragm capable of delivering high clamping forces just when it's needed. This gives the driver a progressive feel under foot, while maintaining near-stock pedal travel and pressure for easy street driving.

Trademark Features: Our Oz700 comes with either our X-Grip or Z-Grip Series disc. The X-Grip combines a carbon-ceramic disc on one side with a high-performance organic facing on the other and is designed to have a smooth initial engagement. The Z-Grip uses a carbon-ceramic facing and is an excellent clutch for moderate to severe-duty applications. Regardless of which disc you choose, the entire assembly is balanced from the factory, and includes a billet-steel flywheel, our pressure plate, and an alignment tool. (The Z-Grip-rated at 700 lb-ft of torque-is by far our most popular unit. We also have an HD version of the Oz700, which is rated at 800 lb-ft.)

Do You Offer Flywheels for Corvettes? We manufacture our own flywheels in-house. They are designed to our specifications out of premium billet steel.
