ACT Puts the Sport Back into the Third Pedal with SFI-Approved Performance Clutch Systems for the 2013 Subaru BRZ!

Tagged under:

The sporty Subaru BRZ coupe has drivers excited about swift performance, crisp handling, rear wheel drive and a manual transmission. Addressing the common concern of soft and vague clutch feel, ACT proudly announces solutions developed specifically to enhance the BRZ driving experience, as well as providing extra torque capacity for future engine upgrades.

ACT's new performance clutch systems for the 2013 Subaru BRZ are available in a Prolite or Streetlite flywheel. Both kit offerings include a Heavy Duty pressure plate, choice of disc, release bearing, pilot bearing and alignment tool. The Heavy Duty pressure plate offers a sportier feel with substantially improved feedback as compared to the soft and numb OE pedal feel while also providing a 70% clamp load increase over the stock unit.

The ACT Street kits combine the Heavy Duty pressure plate with a performance organic street disc. The disc features premium organic friction materials able to withstand increased heat and abuse, steel-backed linings for high-burst strength and modifications engineered for quicker shifting. The ACT Street clutch kit provides smooth engagement and significantly improved durability. These kits meet SFI Spec 1.1 and have an increased torque capacity of 270 ft-lb.

The ACT Race clutch kits combine the Heavy Duty pressure plate with a cerametallic Xtreme Race disc, which is available in 6 and 4-pad sprung-centered and rigid-hub designs. These discs are very durable while allowing for quick shifting. The Xtreme Race discs are for high-powered engines and recommended for track use only. These kits meet SFI Spec 1.1 and will hold 345 ft-lb of torque.

Due to the light weight of the Prolite performance clutch systems, gear rattle should be expected.
