By Unsealed 4X4 3 Min Read

Terrain Tamer has recently released their newest Fortified Plus Clutch Kits. Coming several years after the release of the brand’s original Fortified Clutch range, this new standard in Clutch technology extends on the existing catalogue of standard replacement and heavy-duty clutch kits available from Terrain Tamer.

What’s the story?

Superseding the previous Fortified range, the Fortified PLUS Clutches are OE manufactured and exclusive to Terrain TamerThe Fortified Plus Clutch range was purposely designed with the extreme weight and engine capacity of armoured vehicles in mind. Terrain Tamer says this clutch can offer up to an impressive 80% increase in torque capacity, making it perfect for vehicles with GVM upgrades, where the clutch is often the weakest point. This is also true for those carrying extremely heavy loads or with increased power from upgrades such as chips, aftermarket exhausts and turbos.

Kevlar technology

After many years of developing and testing a variety of designs and friction materials, the Fortified Plus Clutch range employs exclusive Terrain Tamer tooling. All components are made in Japan, including a clutch disc design that utilizesClutchtex Kevlar material on both the engine and transmission facings, to combat shuddering. This is technology not previously used in the 4WD industry.

This Kevlar compound offers a significant increase in strength, and a longevity of up to 2-3 times the OE counterpart, paired with smoother engagement and a softness that ensures the flywheel & pressure plate remain unmarked.

This design also features an increase in damper spring capacity, friction material coefficient and the burst strength of the facing. Where applicable, it also features a 3-stage damper design.

Cool runnings

The Fortified Plus Clutch cover assembly is anodised for maximum corrosion resistance and features a spheroidal graphite anti burst pressure plate casting in order to both assist in the extended life of the clutch, and allow it to run cooler in extreme situations. It offers higher clamp loads and additional drive straps for strength, where required. 

A small but growing range of Terrain Tamer’s Fortified Plus Clutches is now available. For more information visit terraintamer.com
