GTR 600KW clutch


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I've been trying to find some solid answers and trying searching but answers to vary. I'm needing a clutch to handle 600kw @ the wheels with street driving being the #1 priority. From the forums I've seem Jim Berry seem to be popular but I can't find any contact info him, Me being from Canada I would need to email or maybe a facebook page. I've also read decent things about NPC.

 

Anyways looking for some recommendations on what clutches you guys are running with 600+ kw that are some what friendly on the street.

Mate I’m in the same boat as you, I called around a few places (in Australia) and my experience is, I found Direct Clutch service in Queensland to be the best to deal with, they took time to talk to me about what I wanted and what I was going to use the car for and then gave me a couple of options on clutch and explained to me the difference between the clutches they recommended.
Look them up, you should be able to email them.

I was also reading about them! I seen they had a few different options online. Which one did you end up going with?

I called around when I was chasing a 500kw clutch, direct and NPC were very helpful but pricing is pretty high. Ended up with an ATS carbon twin for a good price which drives suuuuper nice and shifts really quick due to such light plates (200g each). I'd recommend their triple for 600kw if you're not going to drag launch it much, otherwise one of the Aussie options will cop a beating for drag  applications. Lots of DCS/npc clutches in big power cars.

Thanks for the reply, I got a-hold of DCS/ NPS both very knowledgeable but also share different opinions in some aspects. I think I will go with the DCS but there clutch is un-sprung so I imagine it will chatter quite a bit. How is the ATS twin for chatter when you disengage the clutch?

I came from a coppermix which has separation springs and clutch straps for the centre plates so it was silent, but definately won't hold 600kw. the straps become a weak point on really high power cars so you won't find them on 600kw clutches.

the ATS definitely jingles and chatters with the clutch pressed, its a lot quieter than the bnr34 getrag rattle though. main benefit is it is super smooth engagement even with a solid un-sprung centre. but if you drag launch them badly the carbon plates transfer a shitload of heat to the metal floaters and warp them.

not sure how it compares to the DCS/NPC ones volume wise. at 600kw any clutch is going to be of a construction that have chattering floating plates.

I haven’t bought yet but I like the sounds of their street clutch, I want the car to drive nice and I don’t intend on limiter launching.

Had an Os giken triple plate  for a fair number of years. Not difficult at all, although takes a few starts/stops to get used to it on day 1. Then it rattles when clutch in like any heavy duty multi plate clutch does when stationary. Know the take up point and all is sweet.

    • Hi Guys, my car issues seem to be going from bad to worse and I’m hoping someone can offer some advice. I’m a Brit and have asked for help on the Brit forums but they’re not as active as they once were.    To save my thumbs I’m just going to copy and paste my posts from the Brit forum. I hope this isn’t considered lazy or rude:- 1st post…… For a while now my dash warning lights on my R34 GTT have been coming on. All of the them. When it happens the car runs like a bag of s**t. I pull over. Turn the car off and back on and the problem goes away. It doesn’t happen again for ages and then all of a sudden the dash lights up and the car is struggling. This has become more and more frequent and it’s now pretty much undrivable. I need to sort this out but don’t know where to start looking. A quick search around the forums and I’m thinking maybe coil packs but I don’t want to just change parts for the hell of it. 2nd post…… Ok the latest in the saga……. I decided to replace the spark plugs and coil packs to eliminate them as the problem. I figured they were over 20 years old and could do with being replaced anyway. I’ve just been out to have a go at changing them but the car won’t start. It turns over fine but won’t fire. I had a replacement CAS here so have swapped that out but it still won’t fire. Pretty sure I’m getting fuel to the injectors as I can smell it! Any ideas? Should the coil pack harness have a constant 12v feed once the ignition is on? Can I test this just by putting a meter across the + and ground pins? Is there a relay or something that should give the harness power once the ignition is on? Any ideas/advice would be appreciated. I’m at my wits end. Don’t know where to start looking really???
    • Hi guys, im a Brit who’s been using this forum for a while. I’m after some help so thought I’d come on and introduce myself. my name is Paddy and I’m an old man (46)! I own an R34 GTT in cloud white. Had it a good few years and do enjoy driving it! Also enjoy the attention it gets.  for those of you who are interested I’ve posted a couple of pics. Not the best pics in the world and they seem to of come out worse than the originals but you get the picture   Will post my issues in the relevant forum. I hope you guys can offer some advice.    thanks. 
    • Started installing the meth kit last night, managed to get it mounted so I could still access the awd resevior. Battery is located on other side I figured this was a nice spot for it. Cheers mates.
    • I saw the E in the model number and stopped thinking. Might not be correct there.
    • As soon as I come on boost that rear housing area, along with all the stuff connected to it will get pretty toasty and I'm not the type to race for a whole 10s or so 😘
