SEMA 2020: The S-Series Twin-Disc Clutch From Monster Clutch Co.

Since the dawn of the hot rod age, manual transmissions have always been a popular option among performance enthusiasts. It takes racing to another level giving the driver precise control in the corners, down the drag strip, and it makes driving fun on the streets. However, in years past, if you needed a high-performance clutch that could take a beating, be prepared to make a sacrifice with drivability. Heavy clutch pedals super finicky disc made banging gears a chore. Monster Clutch has developed a clutch system that cures all of the high-performance clutch ailments of the past.

Monster’s latest product to hit the market is the S-Series twin-disc clutch. This unit can take a tremendous amount of power while retaining stock driving characteristics. The S-Series, which is rated at 700 horsepower and 700 lb-ft of torque at the wheels, includes a warranty, even if you race it.

Monster starts with a factory GM LT1 based pressure plate, and then they modify the lift/release and the plate load to increase performance. Even with these modifications, the clutch pedal will feel like the factory unit. Their twin-disc clutch has the benefits of a factory unit combined with the strength to take severe abuse. And we should mention that the S-Series generates a clean release with factory based GM hydraulics up to 8000 rpm!

These units thrive on the street in stop and go traffic and are just as easy as driving a factory car. They also do great at the drag strip with numerous recorded 9-second passes, as well as the road course or autocross track. – Jason Worlitz

Monster utilizes a patent-pending CNC machined billet steel flywheel to convert them to work in numerous applications. All of their units are balanced to less than 0.100 OZ/IN at no additional charge.

Jason Worlitz, the General Manager at Monster Clutch Co., said, “These units thrive on the street in stop and go traffic and are just as easy as driving a factory car. They also do great at the drag strip with numerous recorded 9-second passes, as well as the road course or autocross track. The S-Series allows you to take advantage of the reduced motion of inertia (MOI) and excellent high rpm release. You can rest easy knowing they are up for the task and will still get you home.”
