4Terrain Off Road Cover Assemblies
4x4 systems need a higher torque capacity while retaining good pedal feel with fine modulation control. These characteristics inevitably increase heat which reduces service life. So the ideal 4x4 clutch system must also have improved heat dissipation. Materials Science has allowed us to include a better casting…..
Spheroidal Graphite Castings
Approximately 300% stronger than a standard casting this material (sometimes referred to as an “Anti Burst” casting) not only increases strength by up to 3 times, it also improves heat dispersion – every 4Terrain Clutch has one.
To insure that the clutch system performs at maximum efficiency and that no unwanted vibration is generated as the cover spins, all 4Terrain cover assemblies undergo a 2 stage balancing process.
4Terrain Off Road Clutch Plates
Smooth Engagement, fine modulation control, extended service life, less fade, increased torque capacity are all benefits of the unique 4Terrain clutch plate design. The key to the success of the 4Terrain clutch plate lies in the unique design of the clutch plate and formulation of the friction materials.
• Long Life: 4Terrain Aramide material displays wear characteristic which are 50% lower than conventional material.
• Less Fade: Fade is a term used to describe the drop in performance experienced in a clutch as the unit becomes heat affected. In serious 4WD applications high temperatures and therefore fade is common place. 4Terrain Aramide material reduces heat induced fade by almost 50%.
• Smooth Engagement as all experienced 4WDers know the smooth engagement and disengagement of the clutch relates directly to the control you have over the motion of the vehicle. 4Terrains friction material combination reduces judder (shudder) during operation. This improves “feel” and control of the vehicle.
