Lake Zurich, IL – New Optimum-RR Street Performance Clutch Kits from Quarter Master® allow Mitsubishi Evo drivers to maintain engine revs for close-to-stock drivability.
These kits enhance the street driving characteristics of Mitsubishi Evo 8/9 daily drivers. Each one comes with a flywheel that increases MOI (or rotating weight) over the brand’s lightweight race version to within 80% of the stock component while keeping mass at a minimum. It weighs nearly two-and-a-half pounds less than the stock piece. Quarter Master® accomplished this by strategically placing mass in designing the flywheel to increase MOI and not overall weight. This allows the driver to maintain RPM for the smooth takeoffs and clutch modulation that Optimum-RR Import Clutches are known for. Quarter Master® Optimum-RR Street Performance Clutch Kits for Mitsubishi Evo 8/9 Applications come with a two-disc clutch and flywheel, and are available with or without a Tri-Lite Hydraulic Throwout Bearing.
