Users also have the option of choosing disc combinations that feature high torque capacities along with smooth consistent engagement. In addition to the variety of options for these kits, they are completely serviceable. All twin-disc kits can be sent back to ACT’s manufacturing facility for resurfacing, component replacement and rebalancing, which is performed at a fraction of the cost.
