Hello All,

You can see clutch disc from my car after 2000 miles and some street races:

Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.


Engine and drivetrain combo:

1776 ccm
CB Street Eliminator 42x37
Engle W120
9.0:1 CR
Dell'orto DRLA40

AT gearbox + KEP Stage 1

Car weight w. driver: 1700 lb

Now I'm looking for something "stronger". Do You have any idea ?

Weird how it fractured all along the rivet line.
I dont use a cush-lok but isn't the lining supposed to be
bonded as well as riveted?

I don't see much of a bonding residue... the base plate is kind of clean?

Is kush-lok a China product.
(And) do you know that this particular disk was new and never soaked
overnight in solvent (or some bad condition like that. Oil etc..).

I think maybe a bad disk because its hard to mess one up that bad
no matter what brand.

You'll probably have no problem getting a free replacement,
BUT like always, do you want one?
And all the bullshit to replace it!

I have uses several Centerforce-Dualforce for street friendly use
yet they grip like mad with even a non-diaphram, even better w/ a stage 1.

Go Either stage II and a copperhead, or try again with a stage I and a copperhead if you feel a stage II is too much.I run a stage III in mine.

I find that interesting as I am going to install a Kush-Lok in my 2187 coupled with a KEP S1. I don't know whether to be concerned or not...

Simple, its not a real Kush-lok, cush-lock or whatever the names are now. Looks like the cheep low grade crap that’s floating around. I use the “Real” Racing Daikin disc not the street one with a stage 2 in our turbo street car, baja and my drag car. No problems at all. I have never used Arts disc but if Arts offering it then you know its top quality.

Art,
John from Aircooled net sels it and on his www there is:
"For high power applications (over 160hp)"
Bujo's engine is much less than that, is it OK to use it for a cars with 120-130PS?
Thank you

so how do you tell the difference between the regular daiken and the heavy duty racing daiken? I bought the racing daiken, and allways wondered how do I know the difference between the two if you only have the one in front of you? Is the part # stamped on the disk different?

The street disc has “B503” part number on the center hub and racing one only has the “DK” emblem.

Hello,

thank you for very helpful answers.
One more question. What do you think about KEP Heavy Duty Clutch Disc. Did somebody have some expirience with this?

Regards
