ACT’s new clutch kits for the Camaro and Firebird include a Heavy Duty pressure plate, a choice of disc, a structurally reinforced release bearing, a pilot bearing, and an alignment tool. The Heavy Duty pressure plate incorporates hardened diaphragm fingers for decreased wear and provides a 38% increase in clamp force over the stock unit.
The ACT Street clutch kits combine the Heavy Duty pressure plate with a spring centered performance organic street disc. The disc features premium organic friction materials able to withstand increased heat and abuse, steel-backed linings for high-burst strength and modifications engineered for quicker shifting. The ACT Street clutch kit provides a moderate and consistent pedal feel, smooth engagement and significantly improved durability. These kits meet SFI Spec 1.1 and have increased torque capacity up to 635 ft.-lbs.
The ACT Race clutch kits combine the Heavy Duty pressure plate with a cerametallic Xtreme Race disc, which is available in a 6-pad spring-centered design. These discs are highly durable while allowing for quick shifting. The Xtreme Race discs are for high-powered engines and recommended for track use only. The ACT Race clutch kits meet SFI Spec 1.1 and are rated to hold up to 815 ft.-lbs. of torque at the crank.

LANCASTER, CALIFORNIA, May 11, 2017 — Advanced Clutch Technology (ACT) is pleased to introduce its new high performance twin-disc clutch kits for the 2016-2017 Camaro SS.
ACT twin-disc clutch kits offer a wide range of street-friendly to race-ready options with torque capacities ranging from 875-1515 ft.-lbs. These kits offer two discs, which results in nearly twice the disc surface area compared to a conventional clutch design, and that means better wear characteristics, a higher heat capacity and longer life. The twin-disc kits include ACT’s proprietary Positive Lift Floater system, which automatically compensates for disc wear.
Each kit offers a choice of three different clamp load designs to give unparalleled performance and moderate pedal effort. 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.
Included in ACT twin-disc kits is a CNC-machined and dynamically balanced forged Chromoly flywheel to ensure smooth, trouble-free installation and years of continued service.
