For Upgraded LS Engines Ram Announces 3 New 12in Clutch Sets

Written by Moore Good Ink Columbia, SC: Ram has announced Heavy Duty clutch sets (pressure plate and clutch plate) for upgraded GM LS-powered vehicles, including the Camaro through 2011, with the following increases in torque capacity. Measuring 12 inches in diameter yet operating within the confines of the conventional flat-style OEM 168-tooth flywheel, Ram’s HD set transmits torque capacity of up to 550ft/lb; their Powergrip 650ft/lb; and the Powergrip HD 750ft/lb. The friction linings featured on these single-plate clutch sets are either organic or metallic or a combination of both. A familiar trail blazed by Ram, they use organic materials on their HD style to provide smooth engagement and a metallic construction on their high-end Powergrip HD series. Their metallic 900 series contributes a higher co-efficient of friction with formidable holding power. On their intermediate clutch set, the Powergrip, they use both materials-placing the organic side toward the flywheel and the metallic side toward the pressure plate. Performance enthusiasts often report three common shortcomings with factory LS clutches: high pedal engagement, uneven pedal feel (initial hard pedal changing to soft), and an inability to re-engage at high engine speeds. The high speed engagement difficulties are caused by the clutch diaphragm travelling over-center at full pedal travel. As a result the centrifugal force doesn’t permit re-engagement. Ram has rectified this ailment by introducing a revised diaphragm with improved geometry. These clutch sets also induce lighter pedal effort and a more consistent, smooth feel throughout pedal travel. Ram also incorporates a helix hub to eliminate gear rattle. When modern transmissions switched from conventional gear oil to automatic transmission fluid to reduce parasitic...

Additionally, two types of Mighty Demon and three types of Road Demon will be in production by early February.

To obtain further technical details or to place orders, contact Scott Witmer by telephone (270) 438-2039 or by e-mail: ScottWitmer@DemonCarbs.com     On its first dyno-pull, a Mighty Demon carburetor powered Jon Kaase’s latest 427cu in small-block P38 engine, recording 717hp @ 6,900rpm and 622ft-lb torque @ 5,300rpm. The P38 with its canted valves will be launched at this year’s PRI exhibition, December 1-3, at the Jon Kaase booth (5342).       Demon Carburetion emerged in the late nineties. It was formed by Barry Grant, a creative genius who a decade earlier had introduced the first high-volume drag racing fuel pump and followed it with an array of interesting carburetors, including square four-barrel and inline four-barrel arrangements, three-deuce designs and...
