Gavins clutch was on its way out, looking at the vehicle we can see why. This black HSV Ute is immaculate and looks like it might be a little bit of FUN! A performance level clutch is required for the package the VE is putting out and the Mantic 9000 Series is a great fit. With the job complete and a few days out the door I chatted with Gavin today for some feedback and to insure he his happy with the choice. Great feedback for the Mantic 9000 Series. Gavin told me the clutch grabs very nicely and has a very near to standard pedal feel. It is noticeably a performance clutch the feel is very good though. Gavin highly recommends the mantic 9000 series to anyone looking for an upgrade.
Gavin will be back for his service and dyno needs in the future.
9000 Series Track – Twin Disc System
Technical information for thoes wanting more information on the clutch systems.
Mantic 9000 Series
Mantic 9000 series clutches are twin disc, 9” (225mm) diameter modular clutches that are designed for high performance cars or track use. Mass is critical for a high performance clutch to produce the expected level of performance, and Mantic offers two levels of low mass clutches to allow you to optimize your vehicle performance to your personal driving style. They offer up to 1010ft lbs (1365nm) of torque drive capability.
Mantic 9000 series are low MOI (Moment of Inertia) twin disc clutches that offer a level of performance not only superior to a single disc unit, but also allow you to select options that best suit you.All 9000 SERIES are made with premium quality materials designed to perform and last the distance.
The key to the 9000 SERIES is the street drivability of the Sprung Street Cerametallic discs. These suit high performance engines and enthusiastic driving styles, while allowing excellent drivability when needed. Low pedal effort is another bonus from the 9000 SERIES.
Mantic 9000 series clutches are available in twin disc variations:
Sprung Street Organic:
This is a sprung centre cushioned organic disc. It is the entry-level disc that offers better than OE engagement and pedal feel whilst still providing a higher torque capacity.
Sprung Street Cerametallic:
This is a sprung centre cushioned button type disc that offers a level of performance above organic discs, while offering little compromise in driving style and vehicle usage.
Rigid Street Cerametallic:
This is a rigid, non sprung centre, but with a cushioned button type disc that allows for a harder driving style with the best compromise for pure performance and drivability.
Rigid Track Paddle:
The solid centre, non cushioned metallic disc and is the highest level of the Mantic 9000 range.
Designed for pure performance, this clutch offers few compromises. Engagement is sudden, limiting the chance of slippage. It is recommended for track use only.
