STAGE 3 ENDURANCE:
Recommended for single mass flywheel (SMF) when original design is DMF to achieve optimal performance. This kit uses the same Race Engineered SFI approved pressure plate as stage 3 daily package. The disc is designed for the special needs of a vehicle with circuit racing in mind. Kevlar friction material is used for its unique static to dynamic ratios of friction co-efficients at high energy levels. This translates to a perfect transition from one gear to the next. Discs are assembled with only performance components and equipped with torsion springs functioning as a damper between engine and gearbox.
Recommend usages are Rally, endurance race, clubsport, autocross, street and daily.
Torque Rating of 580 ft-lbs.
Race Engineered Pressure Plates (SS) used in Stage 3 and 4 clutch kits:
These performance clutches deliver more transmittable torque and stability, longer life and superior thermal resistance. They also deliver noticeably better dynamics through higher clamp load when driving the vehicle to its limits.
Flywheels manufactured by SBC are made from low carbon, hot rolled steel that is highly resistant to warping and perfectly suited for the friction materials mated to them. Single mount CNC machining guarantees precise tolerances and perfect balance exceeding O.E. specifications. Extensive field testing has been done to determine the proper weight for each specific vehicle and to ensure smooth operation, safety and durability under extreme operating conditions.
- Pressure plate is Race Engineered (SS) and SFI approved with significant load increase over stage 1,2 pressure plates.

This clutch is way easier to drive than expected. Expected to have real off/on feel like a race car as this clutch is rated for 580ft/lb... what I got was a SMF clutch that can hold all the beans I can throw at it and DD. The chatter is minimal but does occur when the engine is in low RPMs and should really be in a lower gear. If I could do it again I would install the subframe dead set kit, and a DP at the same time just because the subframe is already out, as well as a fluidampr pulley to reduce chatter. I did do an aftermarket rear main seal (sourced from another site). The SMF makes the throttle response on rev matching much better. The best part is it doesn’t slip like the crappy OEM one hahaha
