The Exedy Hyper Single series clutch is engineered to optimise the performance of cars that have been moderately modified but do not require the clutch capacity of a multi plate clutch. It has a purple anodised forged aluminium cover. The aluminium cover is stiffer than a stamped cover and therefore allows a higher level ratio to maintain the pedal efforts at a reasonable level. There is no clamp load deflection as found in a pressed metal type cover. Additionally the pressure plate features a series of turbine like air flow enhancing vanes that keep the clutch cooler under extreme operating conditions to improve wear life. All hyper single series clutches come with a chromoly steel flywheel and are normally supplied with a 6 puck ceramettalic facing and a spring centre damper disc assembly, however on select vehicles the new VF ( Various Friction) disc may be offered. The chromoly flywheel is lighter than OEM for improved engine response and a lighter overall assembly. The disc is usually smaller and thinner than the OEM disc making for lower inertia and therefore quicker, easier shifting and less wear and tear on the transmission synchros. The higher clamp load and cerametallic friction facings give approximately twice the holding torque of OEM clutches and higher than other single disc clutches.
That’s why EXEDY racing clutches use the highest quality components. They’re built tough to put the power down fast and keep you in the game longer. DesThe Hyper Metal Series is next generation clutch technology. It is available in single, twin and triple plate configurations for both push and pull type clutch systems, the Hyper Metal Series incorporates compact and lightweight designs for improved engagement, shift and engine response whilst maintaining driveability.The EXEDY range includes Hyper Metal Series products for Japanese, European and V8 Commodore and Falcon sports applications.

IMPORTANT: With any ceramic button clutch system, there will be some compromise of start-up driveability when compared to a standard clutch (chatter on light throttle, low RPM start-up) in addition to an increase in cabin and/or transmission noise. This characteristic is generally deemed acceptable in modified performance cars. Drivers of vehicles fitted with cerametallic clutches on the street should be warned not to ride the clutch or try to reduce the chatter as this will greatly increase the wear rate. The above information should be used as a guide only, please consult your Exedy distributor if further advice is required.
