Your clutch is responsible for transmitting torque from the engine to the drivetrain. Your clutch controls the connection between the shaft coming from your engine and the shaft that turns your wheels. When your car needs to change speed or come to a complete spot, that’s where your clutch comes into play. The connection between the wheels and your engine need to be temporarily broken. When your foot pushes down on the clutch pedal, your pressing down on a release fork that through a series of working components, pulls the pressure plate away from the clutch plate. This breaks the connection between the engine in the wheels, meaning your wheels will spin but not through the power of the engine. This is when you would change your cars gear.
When you have a high performance modified engine, your stock clutch just wont cut it anymore. Stock clutches aren’t meant to handle the aggressive driving conditions or high temperatures. Performance clutches generally involve heavier springs and made with different disc materials. A heavier spring results in a clutch with more clamping force, which means more torque can be transmitted without the clutch slipping. Your clutch will be more likely to grab under aggressive shifting or clutch dumping as well.
