FX400 6-Puck Clutch Kit with 25 pound Lightweight Steel Flywheel - RACE/STREET - 170% Increase in Holding Capacity
The FX400 6-Puck is the ultimate extreme duty street and/or road/drag racing clutch system. This clutch is designed for those pushing their Mini Cooper turbo engines to the limit and routinely participate in road coarse, autocross, or other forms of racing that are very hard on clutches. The sprung hub design allows for moderate dampening in high-torque applications, rendering it much more street friendly than solid or rigid designs, however, the ceramic 6-puck paddle design creates a quick and rapid engagement as well as clutch chatter that may not be ideal for street driven vehicles. This disc is designed for outstanding holding capacity, and rapid heat dissipation.
Every Clutch Masters flywheel is proudly designed and manufactured in the USA. Flywheels are first designed in CAD and are then precision CNC machined in house in one of or Haas CNC lathes out of 6061 aluminum or 1045 steel billet cores. After machining, the flywheel is zero balanced to ensure it is evenly weighted on all sides and spins 100% true. Each aluminum flywheel is Type 3 Hard Anodized for the ultimate in durability and protection of the aluminum. All steel flywheels are black oxide coated to add a layer of rust prevention and gives our steel flywheels a unique black finish. The flywheel is then assembled by a Clutch Master Craftsman, double checked for imperfections and tolerances, and is then ready to be paired with your OEM clutch kit or one of our FX100-FX500 single disc clutch kits or twin disc options. All flywheels are SFI 1.2 Certified for use in motorsports.
The FX400 System uses our Hi-Leveragetm Pressure Plate with a custom and extremely durable, Sprung Ceramic disc. This is the ultimate extreme duty street and/or road/drag racing system. It is available in a 6 or 8 ceramic puck configuration. The 6-puck being the more aggressive setup and 8-puck being the less aggressive (please specify which type you prefer). The sprung hub design allows for moderate dampening in high-torque applications, rendering it much more street friendly than solid or rigid designs. This disc is designed for outstanding holding capacity, and rapid heat dissipation.
The FX400/HDCL ceramic full disc design creates a quick and rapid engagement and maintains minimal chatter due to the marcel cushion between the disc linings. This disc is designed for street driven vehicles.
The FX400/HDC6 ceramic paddle design creates a quick and rapid engagement as well as clutch chatter that may not be ideal for street driven vehicles.
Due to the solid (no Marcel) friction rivet design, the FX400 6 disc engages very quickly and may chatter slightly in first and reverse. To help alleviate this problem, we only use premium ceramic friction material.
All stages come as a complete kit including disc, pressure plate, throwout bearing, pilot bearing (when applicable), and alignment tool. (Individual components available upon request)
Ceramic based clutch disc are not intended to increase the life expectancy of a clutch but rather to increase the holding capacity and improve the durability of the clutch. Using a ceramic based material for easy street driving may reduce the life of the clutch kit due to harsh engagement and higher tendency to slip the clutch kit. Ceramic disc are never recommended for stock or near stock vehicle applications.

Many of the traditional high-performance aftermarket clutch kits can cause excessively increased pedal pressure. Such action places an unsafe amount of pressure on the delicate crankshaft thrust bearing found in a number of today’s sport compact vehicles. Clutch Masters’ design team knows that placing undue stress on the thrust bearing causes it to prematurely wear or completely fail, leading to missed shifts, damaged clutch parts, and internal engine damage. This is where the unique Clutch Masters clutch system comes in.
