Vauxhall XE (C20XE) Twin plate clutch assembly, 7 1/4” (184mm)
Suitable for: Lotus Twin Cam, Vauxhall / Opel XE (C20XE), Vauxhall / Opel Ecotec (X20XEV), Rover K-Series
The sintered setup is suitable for circuit racing, where the clutch is not excessively slipped. A twin sintered plate assembly can hold up to 795ft/lbs depending on the cover spring rate. Sintered assemblies are lighter than cerametallic, the plates are less expensive to replace and the torque capacity is generally higher on a like for like basis. Not suitable for road use. Weight (with plates): 3.7kg
The cerametallic type is suitable for just about everything. It has a less aggressive bite, can withstand higher heat loads and therefore more slipping, for example in rally or road use. A twin cerametallic plate assembly can hold up to 506ft/lbs depending on the cover spring rate. Weight (with 4-paddle plates): 4.1kg
Please mention when ordering how much torque your engine is/will be outputting. By default we stock and supply the ‘Red’ assembly which has a capacity of 478ft/lbs (sintered) or 310ft/lbs (cerametallic). Plates are not included.
