Performance Racing Industry 2014: PART 3


Tilton reports that it was the first to release a carbon-carbon clutch, and it was the first to win a Formula One Grand Prix with one (although with Ayrton Senna behind the wheel, no less—hey, no fair!). This is Tilton’s 7.25-in triple-plate clutch for the serious racecar, which features minimal pedal effort with the ability to handle gobs of torque.

Here’s Tilton’s 4.5-in triple plate racing clutch for endurance racing and Indy-type cars. The firm also offers quad-plate designs for both its 4.5-, 5.5- and 7.25-in clutches.

Available just this month, and having made its debut at the PRI 2014 show, is Tilton’s new 600-series 3-pedal underfoot assembly. This assembly features rear facing master cylinders to maximize space, and enables the pedals to be positioned further forward. The pedals are forged aluminum and feature over 180 total configurations between pedals! And would you believe it’s going to retail under $700 online?

In the Sunnen machines booth sat this nice, supercharged Ford Mustang 5.0.

Fans of Disc Brakes Australia will be glad to learn that the company has come out with its line of big brake kits!
