SEMA 2019: McLeod Releases Twin-Disc Clutch For B- And K-Series

Run in several time attack cars, McLeod Racing‘s new Mag Force clutches have impressed some of the most discerning drivers around. The new Mag Force Tuner Series, available in a twin-disc version for the Honda’s K- and B-series, is strong enough to hold 800 lb-ft of torque, but still amenable enough for street usage.

Though designed for racing, the Mag Force clutches can be used on the street due to manageable pedal pressure and linear engagement. A relatively soft aluminum pressure plate allows for the driver to load the car onto the trailer, or even drive it on the street without lurching or tensed shoulders. It’s easily modulated, and far from “lightswitch-y” in its engagement.

With eight sintered iron discs, the Mag Force clutch grabs harder once it’s heated. That means an easy, jerk-free pit departure and out-lap, then quick, clean engagements by the time the hot laps begin. An aluminum flywheel, in addition to saving some weight, allows for faster revs, cleaner down changes, and greater general engine control. Owners have remarked on how, just with a clutch change, they shaved two-tenths of a second off their lap times at the Streets of Willow.

“We want the Tuner Series to become the premier destination for the import community. Adding the Mag Force to the line up will attract more buyers who produce more horsepower on the track and the street,” said Import Sales Manager, Joe Macasero.

Priced in the middle of the entry-level and high-end twin-disc clutch range, completely rebuildable, and usable for drivers of different skill levels, the McLeod Mag Force twin-disc clutches will make many a Honda owner happy.
