For Sonic 2012+ and Cruze 2011-2016 Limited
The Stage 1 System uses the Power Plus I Pressure Plate with a custom heavy-duty Steel Back Organic friction disc. This clutch is engineered for heavy-duty street use. It is specifically designed for extended wear and additional clamping force for the enthusiast who has added a tune, exhaust system, an intake system, up to 50hp NO2 upgrade, or other external bolt-ons (Also works great with our E85 kits!). It features only slightly increased pedal pressure, longer life than stock, and normal clutch feel during engagement and disengagement for a very smooth operation.
All of the Stage upgrades by Clutchmasters can be ordered with a dampened or Rigid disc. Most of the time for street applications we are going to recommend the dampened or sprung center hub. With the dampened hub, there are small springs that buffer the engagement of the clutch, which produces a smoother engagement. The rigid disc can take more abuse but is a little bit rougher on engagement and is only recommended for track use or a car used for a lot of drag racing.
If you have any questions about which clutch setup would be best for you, feel free to contact us.
