What are the Pros and Cons of Double Disc Clutches?

1 minuteread

First, Let’s Give Double Disc Clutches Their Due:

Double disc clutch kits serve two very specific applications:

  1. They handle extreme applications: It’s visiting depend upon the vehicle, but there are some situations where a double-disc is that the only option. If you have got a high horsepower/torque truck (800+ hp), double-disc is your only option as single disc clutches will blow out over 700hp.
  2. They sound like they’re really tough: Two is best than one, right? So a “double” disc is healthier than a “single” disc, especially if the person you’re describing your clutch to doesn’t know much about the system.


Now, Here’s Why Double Disc Clutches Are Overrated:

Double clutches aren’t bad, per se, they’re just not good for many vehicles and applications. This can be because:

  1. Most of the double-disc systems are hard to drive: After the break-in period, double-disc clutches become only slightly more drivable than they were before. Simply stated, double-disc setups don’t give feathering. Either the clutch is engaged fully or it isn’t engaged in the slightest degree. Smooth take-offs from a stoplight? Nearly impossible. Stop and go? Towing in reverse? Be able to hate driving.
  2. Once you double the clutch discs, you double the price: For the foremost part, double-clutch kits are way more expensive than single disc kits. Without calling out anyone particularly, it’s no surprise that plenty of clutch retailers recommend double-disc setups.
  3. Single discs are infinitely more drivable than double discs: Single disc setups give smooth takeoffs, minimal pedal effort, and make stop-and-go driving tolerable.
