Trademark Features: Made here in the USA, our clutches use proprietary friction materials that have been proven to hold tremendous power (425 to 1,750hp ratings) and torque. They are rated in controlled environments, as well as on the street and track. They come with a 12-month warranty and outstanding customer support.

Do You Offer Flywheels for Corvettes? We offer two different SFI-certified flywheels. One is a 28-pound unit, and the other is an 18-pound piece. Both are manufactured from U.S.-made 1045 billet steel and are machined and manufactured right here in Texas.

Quote from Company: "We have proven to the clutch industry that we are a force to be reckoned with. Everything-from the quality of our product to our outstanding warranty and customer service-speaks volumes to consumers. We stand behind our product because we've tested it, proven it, and it just plain works!"

RAM Clutches
(803) 788-6034

Brief Description: Our DirectFit StreetDual is a twin-plate high-performance clutch-and-flywheel assembly for the Corvette C6 and C6 Z06. Designed for use in street applications with healthy increases in power (via blowers, turbos, or nitrous), this new clutch arrangement is a true bolt-in, twin-plate replacement assembly. Similar in dimensions to the OE original, its overall height is 3.0 to 3.1 inches (measured from the crankshaft flange to the fingertips of the cover assembly), and its diameter is 10.5 inches.

Trademark Features: The DirectFit StreetDual clutch is equipped with a strong, 2,400-pound clamp-load diaphragm cover, a nodular pressure ring for strength, and RAM 300-series organic-disc friction material. The chief advantage of using organic friction material is its superior holding power and improved driveability, without chatter on takeoff.

The clutch disc springs are also stiffer. By encasing them in urethane, their compression rate increases to approximately four times that of an uncoated spring. As a result, this clutch assembly distinguishes itself by not only having the capacity to handle up to 1,000 hp at the rear wheels, but also providing stock driveability.

Since this clutch has to combat greater rotational forces, steel friction backing is added. The facing is riveted steel-to-steel, in contrast with factory non-backed facings.
