Dual Friction

When Centerforce introduced the Dual Friction clutch, it took a good clutch and made it better via a performance matched pressure plate and disc combination. If you like high-performance driving, yet use your ride for the daily drive, Dual Friction answers the call with Centerforce’s centrifugal weight package that puts additional squeeze on the disc, pressure plate, and flywheel at higher RPM. The most popular all around clutch Centerforce has ever offered is the Dual Friction, which offers a unique two-friction surface design – one type on the flywheel side and another type on the pressure plate side for outstanding performance. Centerforce does this because each side of the clutch disc is subjected to different forces under extreme conditions. The full-face pressure plate side offers smooth engagement. The puck-style flywheel side yields a solid hook-up.


The DFX is a performance clutch for down and dirty domestic applications where good, positive engagement is a must. The DFX offers mild pedal pressure with good engagement thanks to the weighted design, which comes on strong at high rpm. The DFX offers nodular iron pressure plate rings for durability and smooth function along with tough reinforcements engineered to prevent strap failure. Although clutch function is smooth, engagement can be harsh due to the heavy duty materials used in the DFX.

LMC Series

Centerforce puts a different spin on the clutch with this lightweight design known as the LMC (Light Metal Clutch). The SFI approved LMC yields less rotating mass and weight, which allows your engine to rev quickly. This makes the LMC optimal for road racing and circle track applications where you need a quick response. Clutch material includes dual segmented carbon-composite frictions. Use this clutch with a Centerforce aluminum/steel flywheel combo.
