Picking the right clutch for your Corvette is alot like choosing the right cam for your set-up. To much or to little will negatively affect your cars performance. So below is a guide to help steer you in the right direction to proper clutch selection.
Also remember to get your flywheel resurfaced or replaced to prevent premature wear and proper grip of your clutch to the flywheel.
Understanding how a clutch works is one thing, but when it comes time to purchase a new clutch for your Corvette making the proper selection is more important than understanding the dynamics of how the clutch system works. There are many different clutch types to select from and the two main questions to consider when selecting the proper clutch are;
How much torque does my Corvette make?
What type of driving does my Corvette undergo?
By answering those two questions it will narrow down the field for selecting a clutch for your Corvette. This is because clutch manufacturers choose different materials and different engineering designs to properly suit the different types of driving conditions that cars are put through. It wouldn’t make sense to have a heavy duty clutch on a stock Honda or having a stock Honda clutch on a Lingenfelter Corvette.
