Default Tilton Carbon/Carbon Clutch

We have a completly new, unused Tilton Carbon/Carbon clutch for sale. We paid over $4,000 for this, and are willing to sell it for $2750.

As you can see, it has never been mated up to a flywheel and is in perfect condition. For guys that need a bullet proof clutch, this is the only way to go.

PM or email [email protected] if interested.

Thanks. Yeah, these clutches are awesome. We've had it in the car for many many races and it still holds like nobody's business. This will last a proper driver forever.

anyone tried this compared to the os giken twin? i have an os giken twin and it's so harsh and abrupt. I would like something smoother engaging for the street.

Binder,
This clutch is amazing. It feels like a street clutch. Doesn't grab and lurch the car. It has a very smooth engagement and would be great on the street. If you're a smooth shifter, this thing will last forever.

We've had one in the race car for years and it still doesn't slip. Same clutch.

WHere can you source a flywheel for this setup? I was told that Tilton no longer made the flywheel which doesnt make much sense to me.

I believe Titan Motorsports sold them and may have stock.

Tilton makes them when they reach enough orders to build them. Typical of production- 1 is super pricey, but 10 makes financial sense.

You wouldn't happen to know offhand if the tilton flywheels are the same for the carbon/carbon clutches and the other clutches that had ceramic/metallic disks and used that other style basket?

Tilton refered me to AASCO for a custom flywheel. I believe they work closely with tilton and should be able to machine exactly what you need. I was headed that way, but ran across a used flywheel while waiting for a return call from them.

from talking with tilton, the flywheels are interchangable. The earlier 51-4203 was a little lighter and the more current 51-4207 is slightly heavier for driveability. All the clutches work on either.
The cerametalic and organic plates will work in the same clutch assembly, but the carbon is specific.

Somebody got real lucky with that buy. Tilton sells top notch quality parts and that clutch kit is nothing less than extraordinary.
