High-Torque Clutch set for XB8 is an important performance upgrade. The clutch provides a smoother and more continuous transfer of power from engine at very high RPM. The clutch engages higher in RPM range, resulting in more controllable power during acceleration, while still maintaining good handling and performance on jumps. The updated design and engagement profile also provide for extended clutch life.
The High Torque Clutch set includes:
#358532 Flywheel - flywheel has a smaller diameter but increased weight. With the smaller diameter, the flywheel is more protected above the chassis bottom, so after huge jumps there is reduced chance of engine stoppages when the car lands on a rock or other hard surface. The increased weight results in more balanced engine operation.
