Alcon is proud to announce the latest addition to its motorsport clutch range. Aimed at rallycross drivers, this triple plate carbon clutch is designed to be one of the most competitive clutches on the market.  Built on the success of its predecessor, the new 2016 clutch is approximately 10% lighter and offers 18% reduction in inertia as well as an impressive 38% reduction in deflection.rsz_os0a9879

This lightweight optimised clutch is engineered to provide optimal durability, better heat management and championship-winning performance in challenging rallycross competition. The new Alcon rallycross clutch will give the driver the best possible start through increasing the stiffness and reducing the deflection of the clutch.

Key features and benefits:

  • Extremely low inertia
  • High temperature resistance
  • Open design for greater heat dissipation and improved dust removal
  • Smooth engagement / quick shift response
  • High stiffness cover design for im­proved start line control
  • Durable plated finish
  • Choice of different ratio diaphragm springs
  • No flywheel or pressure plate wear

Using the finest materials and the latest manufacturing processes, all Alcon products are designed, manufactured and rigorously tested in-house in Tamworth, UK.

Winners of the 2015 World Rallycross Championship (WRX) and 2015 Global Rallycross Championship (GRC) did so with Alcon equipped cars. With this new addition to their rallycross product range, Alcon is intent on doing the same again in 2016.

Universal Automotive has launched a fully revised and updated catalogue to support its popular VECO range of clutches, clutch kits, concentric slave cylinders and clutch KitPlus products. New clutch catalogue from VECO

The 2011 VECO Clutch catalogue contains more than 1,450 part numbers, a 40% increase over the previous edition and now extends to 228 pages, which covers 98% of the UK vehicle parc. In additional to an increase in traditional clutch products, the catalogue also contains more than 130 references for its Clutch KitPlus range.

VECO Clutch KitPlus combines a two-piece clutch kit and the concentric slave cylinder to provide a convenient all-in-one package and since its launch the range has grown by more than 500%.

The VECO brand proves that businesses don’t need to source products from lesser quality suppliers in order to give the market a product that is of matching OE quality and is competitively priced. In fact Universal Automotive is so confident in the quality of its VECO range, that it has introduced a no-quibble warranty for its three-in-one clutch kits.

The warranty means that factors can have even more confidence in the kits, which include the housing, friction plate and thrust bearing, because they will be providing their valued garage customers with OE quality products with the assurance of a two-year or 20,000 mile warranty.

John Goodland, Sales Director of Universal Automotive said: “The VECO clutch range is already popular with factors because it gives them quality and value. By combining these benefits with a two-year warranty and by introducing the Clutch KitPlus range provides the factor, and its garage customers, with an even more competitive offering with added peace-of-mind.”
