Innovative Engineering by ZF SACHS
- Higher transmittable torque
- Higher clamp load
- Less abrasion
- Easy replacement
The reinforced SACHS Performance clutch cover has fundamental advantages against an OE clutch cover, such as a higher transmittable torque and higher resistance against thrust. It also allows for faster and sportier gearshifts. That makes the Performance clutch cover extremely useful for street tuning, endurance races, hill climbing and for vehicles that are often driven with their maximum gross vehicle weight.
The SACHS Performance clutches are assembled by hand. This guarantees at all times the highest quality attributes in clamping load and release characteristics.
Quality - Made in Germany
The clutch systems from ZF Sachs Race Engineering have brought motor sports teams worldwide to the forefront, from mass sports to Formula 1. The knowledge gained from these race series has been flowing into the development of High Performance products for years.
Typcially applications include:
- Chip-Tuning, turbocharger and supercharger modifications
- Vehicles with maximum gross vehicle weight and according to high load (towing trailers, campers)
- 1/4 mile-race
- Race circuit (endurance race, clubsport, autocross)
- Rally (e.g. group N)
- Slalom, Drift Racing
SACHS Performance clutch in the BMW Motorsport
SACHS is a longstanding partner of BMW Motorsport. In racing series such as the DTM or long-distance sport at the Nürburgring 24 hour race, BMW relies on clutches from ZF SACHS.
DTMSince the 2012 season, the three premium brands Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz have been fully relying on clutch systems from ZF SACHS for all their DTM vehicles.
The BMW racing clutch "SACHS Formula Carbon clutch 4/140Y" has four carbon clutch plates. The clutch transmits a torque of up to 900 Nm and is designed for long durability.
24 Hours NürburgringSeven of the top ten teams lately relied on SACHS clutches at the greatest long-distance race in Germany - including the first four of the overall rankings at the Nuerburgring 24 Hour.
Porsche crossed the finish line in third place, whose 911 is equipped with ZF clutches and dampers. The BMW teams who came fourth and sixth, the seventh-placed Audi and ninth-placed Nissan all use ZF clutches in their power transmission.
