If you have a big horsepower street car that uses a manual transmission, McLeod Racing has great news for you. The company has just released their SFT 2000 clutch and this unit is a 2,000hp capable, street friendly twin-disc unit and the best part is that it is available for the most popular applications in hot rodding right now. From Modular Engines to LS engines, traditional Chevy big and small blocks, and small block Ford engines.
These twin-disc clutches have a 10.5″ pressure plate, will work with factory hydraulic systems, and they will fit inside the bell housing of your factory transmission. Long story short, you do not have to reengineer your car to make these units work and to get all the benefits of what they bring to the table.
You can “over clutch” a street car for sure. The idea of running a full racing clutch on the street sounds cool on paper but when you have to actually operate it, it sucks. For years, to have the capability to hang onto 2,000hp that was about your only option. These clutches with the semi-metallic discs are designed to have smooth engagement for street use and are built with the gription to handle the horsepower as well.
Here’s the full release from McLeod Racing on the SFT 2000 clutch!
McLeod Racing has expanded their extensive twin disc clutch line to incorporate the new McLeod SFT 2000. The SFT 2000 by McLeod brings a whole new level of holding power to the street/strip twin disc clutch market. The Street Fighter Twin, as we call it, can hold an amazing 2,000 HP while still being very street friendly.
Debuted at the PRI Show, the SFT 2000 inherits the McLeod standard for twin disc technology. Equipped with two ceramic discs, the unit has a 10.5” pressure plate, compliant with factory hydraulics, and will fit in the factory bellhousing/
The semi-metallic discs are great for smooth engagement and high horsepower street driving, yet give you the material you need when fighting for that win light at the track.
“With the long history and success of our twin disc clutch technology, we wanted to bring customers another option for their car needs,” says Paul Lee, McLeod Racing’s President. “We now have an option for every horsepower and driving need. McLeod is known for having the broadest and most reliable twin disc clutches on the market. You can’t copy experience and McLeod has nearly 50 years of it.”
The SFT 2000 is easy to shift at high RPM, includes a performance flywheel, and is rebuildable for racing use. The kit is available for Mustang, early GM, and LS.
In addition to the SFT 2000, McLeod continues to produce their flagship products, the RST, RXT, and RXT 1200. For more information about the leader in drivetrain technology, visit mcleodracing.com.
