Clutch Masters 850 Series Twin Disk Clutch Kit with a Aluminum Flywheel for the 1JZ & 2JZ using a 26 Tooth T56
Something we have been seeing more frequently at Brewed Motorsports is folks using a 26 tooth T56 transmission mated to their 1/2JZ motors. Clutch Masters was kind enough to ensure our needs were taken care of with their phenomenal clutch kits! The 850 twin disk clutch is rated for around 800 horsepower and is a must have to put the power to the ground for any track ready 1JZ or 2JZ, while also shaving rotating mass from your engine!
This 850 series kit is a 8.5″ (216mm) twin disc clutch with a custom cover plate that is machined from billet aluminum and is then Type 3 hard anodized. By machining the strongest cover possible while maintaining minimal weight, Clutch Masters was basically able to eliminate any flex in the cover. The billet covers see only .003″ of flex where as a cast or stamped unit can see as much as .030″ of flex. By eliminating this flex in the cover, the driver is able to operate the clutch much more consistently and confidently. The strength of the covers also results in greater clamping force over the same amount of area vs a cast or stamped cover. This means the twin discs are easy to drive and have superior clamping force to make sure all the power your engine is making is being utilized.
What makes the 850 kits truly special, and a feature unique to Clutch Masters is the QR System, or Quick Release Pressure Plate. The QR System Incorporates three spring-loaded bolts allowing the pressure plate to engage and disengage evenly and smoothly while reducing internal clutch noise/chatter by up to 50%. The QR System was developed to provide quiet and smooth operation for the user while delivering the performance a race clutch needs.

This kit is specifically designed for the serious drag racing with very significant modifications to their 1JZ or 2JZ using a 26 Tooth T56 transmission, and most importantly one of our infamous Brewed tunes. If you’re looking for a more streetable twin disc, we also offer 16173-TD8S-AVH which is the same kit but has a organic style disc rather than two ceramic discs for smoother engagement.
**The aluminum flywheel commonly creates gear noise. If you’re looking for a more friendly twin disk kit, check out 16173-TD8R-SVH with a steel flywheel.**
