Rigid clutch disc with sintered metal plates
- Higher transmittable torque compared to organic friction material
- Higher thermal capacity compared to organic friction material
- Higher burst number of revolutions
- Longer life span
- Aggressive start performance
- Effortless exchange with OE clutch disc
The SACHS Racing clutch discs with sintered metal plates have a higher friction coefficient than plates with organic friction material. That allows for higher transmittable torque and makes them very dirt and oil resistant.
Their aggressive start performance makes them very suitable for endurance races, hill climbing, slalom and rally's. Installed together with the SACHS Performance clutch cover, you´ll have the perfect combination for a great race track experience.
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, 1/4 mile-race, Race circuit (endurance race, clubsport, autocross), Rally (e.g. group N), Slalom, Drift Racing. Due the aggressive start performance of the sintered disc, that disc is not recommended for street cars.
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.
