The Mantic Quad Disc Clutch offers several benefits for high-performance vehicles and demanding driving conditions. If you drive a Corvette, Dodge Challenger SRT, Hellcat or Gen 4 and 5 Dodge Viper, we have a big bad quad disc for your vehicle. Remember, all clutch kits include the matching flywheel, throwout bearing and hardware needed for proper installation. Here are some of the key advantages:
1) Increased Torque Capacity: The Quad Disc Clutch is designed to handle higher torque levels compared to traditional single-disc clutches. This makes it ideal for vehicles with significant power upgrades or those subjected to extreme driving conditions. It ensures reliable power transfer without slippage, even under heavy loads. Each quad disc can handle up to 2000 ft-lbs of Torque Capacity at Crank and up to 1700 ft-lbs of Torque Capacity at Wheels.
2) Enhanced Clamping Force: The Quad Disc Clutch utilizes multiple friction discs, which allows for a larger contact area and greater clamping force compared to single-disc clutches. This improves the overall grip and power transfer efficiency, reducing the risk of clutch slip and maximizing torque delivery to the drivetrain.
3) Improved Heat Dissipation: The additional friction discs in the Quad Disc Clutch provide enhanced heat dissipation capabilities. Heat is a common issue during high-performance driving, and excessive heat can lead to clutch fade, reduced performance, and premature wear. The Quad Disc Clutch's design helps dissipate heat more effectively, ensuring consistent clutch engagement and longevity.
4) Smooth Engagement: Despite its high-performance capabilities, the Quad Disc Clutch offers smooth and progressive engagement. The multiple friction discs distribute the clamping force more evenly, resulting in a smoother transition between clutch engagement and disengagement. This makes it easier to modulate the clutch pedal and provides better control during takeoff and shifting.
5) Longevity and Durability: The Quad Disc Clutch is built to withstand the demands of high-performance applications. The use of high-quality materials, such as heat-treated steel, and robust construction techniques ensures durability and longevity even under demanding driving conditions. This reduces the need for frequent clutch replacements and maintenance.
6) Reduced Pedal Effort: Despite its increased clamping force, the Quad Disc Clutch can often offer a lighter pedal feel compared to single-disc clutches. This can be particularly beneficial for vehicles used in daily driving or in stop-and-go traffic, as it reduces driver fatigue and enhances overall drivability.
It's important to note that the specific benefits of a Mantic Quad Disc Clutch can vary depending on the vehicle application, power levels, and driving style. Consulting with an experienced mechanic or clutch specialist can provide further insights into the advantages it offers for your specific needs.
7) Reduced Drivetrain Shock: The Quad Disc Clutch's design helps to dampen drivetrain shock during aggressive launches and gear changes. It can absorb and dissipate sudden torque spikes, reducing stress on the transmission, driveshaft, and other drivetrain components. This feature enhances the overall drivetrain reliability and longevity.
8) Smoother Gear Changes: The Quad Disc Clutch's multi-disc configuration enables quicker and smoother gear changes. The reduced inertia and improved engagement characteristics allow for faster shifts, reducing the time spent off-throttle during gear transitions. This can lead to improved acceleration and lap times in high-performance driving scenarios.
9) Compatibility with Upgraded Powertrain Components: The Mantic Quad Disc Clutch is designed to handle the increased demands of vehicles equipped with upgraded powertrain components such as turbochargers, superchargers, or nitrous systems. It provides the necessary clamping force and torque capacity to effectively harness the additional power and torque generated by these modifications.
10) Modular Design and Serviceability: Mantic Quad Disc Clutches often feature a modular design, allowing for individual disc replacement if needed. This means that in the event of wear or damage to one or more friction discs, you may not need to replace the entire clutch assembly. It can result in cost savings and easier maintenance.

11) Enhanced Traction: By providing consistent and reliable power transfer, the Quad Disc Clutch can help improve traction, especially in situations where the wheels are prone to slipping, such as on low-traction surfaces or during aggressive launches. It helps ensure maximum power is transmitted to the wheels, minimizing wheel spin and optimizing acceleration.
12) Track-Ready Performance: The Quad Disc Clutch's high-torque capacity, improved heat dissipation, and overall durability make it an excellent choice for track enthusiasts. It can withstand the demanding conditions of high-speed driving, repeated hard launches, and aggressive gear changes, allowing drivers to push their vehicles to the limit without concerns about clutch performance. Keep in mind, the quad disc is built around the same design features as our award winning Twin Disc but with a solid hub and more friction material.
These additional benefits highlight the versatility, performance, and reliability of a Mantic Quad Disc Clutch, making it a popular choice for enthusiasts seeking a high-performance clutch solution.
