SEMA 2012: Centerforce DYAD Is Back

On our trek through SEMA, without a doubt, we couldn’t help but stop by the Centerforce booth to check out all the latest offerings, especially with their line of DYAD clutches. When it comes to your high-performance vehicle, you need a clutch that’ll stand up to the torture of aggressive driving and be able to withstand the extremely high horsepower and torque loads of today’s engines. The DYAD DS Multi-Disc clutch from Centerforce Clutches, with it’s high-end holding capacity, has the ability to deliver amazing driver control and usability, all while giving you the same factory pedal engagement and feel as you’d expect.

With the new DYAD, you’ll be confident enough to push your car to its limit time and time again without worrying about clutch fade.

What’s more, nothing in the drivetrain is sacrificed when installing the new clutch setup. This means you won’t need to have legs the size of Sequoia trees or have to be a leg-pressing/bodybuilding champion to engage the clutch either.

Though the DYAD isn’t new for this year, their line of applications has greatly grown to now even include some diesel applications. If you’re curious about holding power, Centerforce has even recently tested their DYAD up to 1,300 ft-lb, whoa!

And, if you know anything about diesel powerplants, you’re well aware of their low-rpm grunt and how necessary the correct clutch components are needed. So, how does it all work? This new Multi-Disc clutch system replaces the current pressure plate, disc, and flywheel assembly with a higher holding capacity system, designed for a direct bolt-in replacement.

The DYAD DS (Drive System) multi-disc clutch design has been developed to meet the needs of modern high-end vehicles. Today’s technology has allowed for engine torque to exceed unprecedented levels and still be driven every day. Drivers need a clutch that can offer; smooth engagement, quiet operation, light pedal, and high-end holding capacity. The DYAD DS offers that and more!

  • Patent pending
  • Fully dampened clutch system developed for vehicles with extreme power levels
  • New multi-disc, floating-disc and drive-disc design
  • Smooth engagement and light pedal effort
  • Quiet operation
  • High Torque Capacity 1300 ft/lbs at the flywheel
  • Greater longevity fasteners
  • Excellent driver control
  • Specification card included
