December 2, 2011 (Cookeville, TN) Get the power of a twin disc clutch with the smooth engagement of a stock style single disc with American Powertrain’s™ new Science Friction AFT™, the world’s only progressive uptake clutch disc.
The unique Science Friction AFT utilizes their patent pending Active Friction Technology™, using a raised ring of smooth reliable full circle Kevlar fabric to start your input shaft spinning before full clamp brings the outer ring of super tough ventilated Feramix™ on line for incredible power holding. The AFT is like getting two clutches in one.
The Science Friction AFT will handle up to 780ft-lbs of torque with a modern effort diaphragm style pressure plate, giving you an engagement that is so smooth that it rivals the mildest stock style organic discs at a price that beats many lesser single disc clutches and streetable twin disc systems.
The Science Friction AFT is currently available for all 10.5” and 11” GM, Ford and Mopar applications. Disc prices start at $269 while complete Science Friction AFT clutch kits are available starting at $499.
