At T.I. Performance, we understand a mixture of parts is required to keep a older car on the road. Parts degrade over time due to wear and tear, and essential parts such as the clutch need to be replaced. Also, upgrades or track use may require upgrades to handle the power.
With a wide range of high-quality clutches and clutch accessories, we help car owners ensure their vehicles run smooth for longer. Whatever your ride, T.I. Performance has a product to fit every need and budget, so you can get the most out of your transmission.
The clutch is a key part of your vehicle
The clutch is a critical component in a car’s drivetrain that connects and disconnects the engine’s power to the transmission. It works by engaging and disengaging the engine’s flywheel with the transmission’s input shaft. The clutch disc is situated between the two, and when the clutch pedal is depressed, it disengages the engine from the transmission. 
That said, the clutch is essential for a car to function correctly. A worn and faulty one can result in the following: 
– Poor performance
– Slipping under load
– Damage to flywheel and other components
A properly operating clutch also requires a good pilot/spigot bearing, throw out/release bearing, pedal, and where fitted fork, cable or hydraulic system. Thankfully we carry all of these items in our range!
Maintaining your clutch
Maintaining your car’s clutch is crucial for optimal performance and long life. Here are some steps you can take to keep your clutch in good condition:
Avoid overusing the clutch — The clutch should only be used for shifting gears. Avoid resting your foot on the clutch pedal while driving or using it to hold the car in place on hills.
Keep the flywheel clean when installing — The flywheel surface needs to be machined flat and clean from oil. Use brake cleaner to clean the flywheel when installing a new clutch.
Inspect the clutch cable or hydraulic system regularly — Look for signs of wear and tear, such as leaking, frayed cables, grinding or difficulty shifting gears. Address any issues promptly to avoid damage to the clutch itself.
Replace the clutch and its accessories — When the clutch reaches the end of its lifespan, or you make significant changes to the power output or driving conditions, replace the clutch with one suited to your application, along with other related components, such as the flywheel and release bearing. For a recommendation contact us.
Choose high-quality replacements — Only opt for high-quality clutch components and accessories just like the ones we have here at T.I. Performance to ensure your car’s clutch system performs optimally and lasts longer.
By following these steps and regularly maintaining your car’s clutch, you can avoid costly damage and keep the power to the ground.
