ACT street discs are available for most popular applications and feature premium organic composite linings, combining increased friction with better heat transfer. These discs have steel-backed linings for greater burst strength and durability. Street discs are built with a limited marcel (engagement cushion), allowing for quicker shifts when used with ACT pressure plates.
All Modified and Performance street discs are certified as meeting SFI® Specification 1.1 and are legal in all racing organizations that require SFI® Certification.
Precision broached splines ensure an exact fit onto the transmission input shaft for long spline life and better clutch release.
Performance street discs feature a premium organic friction material, tested to provide better heat capacity and faster recovery from overheating.
ACT carefully selects the right amount of cushioning between the linings for smooth and progressive engagement characteristics, without sacrificing performance.
Disc components are manufactured using precision stampings from dedicated tooling, allowing the highest quality and consistency.
Top grade rivets, carefully selected for maximum strength and fatigue resistance, are used to securely fasten the disc assembly.
ACT spring retainers are designed with wrap-around spring windows to provide additional support and reduce stress concentrations, which eliminate common causes of failure. These improved retainers are found on most ACT Modified and Performance street discs.
Heavy duty torsional damper springs are typically stronger than standard springs and are engineered to suit each application. Quieter operation is ensured from high quality, OE-style torsional dampers.
Spring windows on most street discs are heat treated to resist wear, increase strength and keep springs from “popping out.”
Rigid hub discs have reduced inertia for faster shifts and lower stress on synchronizers, providing race-proven performance with street manageability.
Most ACT spring-centered assemblies use bushings and cone or wave springs, similar to factory clutch discs. This creates frictional damping to improve clutch life and reduce noise.
Gear noise may occur due to the absence of torsional damping springs on rigid-hub discs or stiffer damping springs on Performance street discs. This is normal and does not increase transmission wear.
