EXEDY: World-Class Clutch Kits

By Peter Mackinnon

A lot of us like to modify our machines, right? For many of us, pulling out original equipment and replacing it with aftermarket improvements is what owning your own car is all about. When those improvements enhance overall performance and take your driving experience to a new level, we have to be honest and say life doesn’t get much better. For those who love to race, the right clutch upgrade can be the difference between glory and failure. For modified cars that take to the street, a new clutch kit is one of the most satisfying improvements that can be made… if you get it right!

With that said, EXEDY is a worldwide brand that is all about getting it right, all about pushing the limits of performance. Proud to be a Tier 1 supplier of OEM clutches, EXEDY is no stranger to the exacting demands of original vehicle manufacturers throughout Japan, the US and Europe. However, for those of us who want our cars to go faster than they ever have, to respond quicker, we have to go beyond OEM.

If ever EXEDY needed to prove its status as the world leader in performance clutch solutions, then its place in the world of motorsport can confirm it. Its performance clutch products have been fitted to a number of Formula 1 and Moto GP championship-winning vehicles, meaning EXEDY has been, and still is, the brand of choice for many of the most innovative racing teams around. The facts are that EXEDY has been fitted to the most advanced vehicles in the world, and has put its drivers on the podium time and time again. EXEDY has an undisputed place at the pinnacle of motorsport – testament to its world-class quality.

It will come as no surprise, then, that EXEDY prides itself on providing perfection to overall performance and safety assurance, never settling for second best. For example, EXEDY Multi Plate Performances Clutches are put together by hand before the assembled product is strictly assessed for clamp load and release characteristics. EXEDY produces performance and racing solutions for those who expect the best, from motorsport teams to savvy enthusiasts. We at Spares Box offer three performances ranges on top of OEM clutch kits. Here is a quick rundown on what our EXEDY products do. Further information is available on our EXEDY Buying Guide.
