Monster Level 1 Clutch
This clutch was designed as a direct competitor to the LS7 unit, only better. The Level 1 features our proven Heavy Duty Pressure Plate, Carbon/Organic 12" disc and a SFI certified billet steel flywheel which is far superior in every way to the OE style LS7 unit! Monster has taken the worry out of the organic clutch with our Level 1, here’s how. Monster started with the two most important pieces, the disc and the pressure plate. We all know that the LS7 pressure plate, while great for a stock car, is a joke for competitive driving. It “self adjusts” and adds comfort to driving your car which loosely translates to; the pedal goes limp when you power shift or the unit just outright fails! We start with a clean slate and offer you the best of pressure plates and clutch discs! Our proven Heavy Duty pressure plate is a HUGE improvement over the LS7, the plate load is considerably higher with only a 5% stiffer pedal over stock. Monster's friction is far superior to the standard organic used by the OE manufacturers as well. This material is impregnated with a carbon mixture to reduce high heat breakdown and increase the coefficient of friction, this translates to higher holding capacity and the ability to take a beating. With this you get a clutch that will support up to 450 rwhp without any worries to the driver and will still drive like a stock unit. Thrown in is a SFI certified billet steel flywheel so when you upgrade your car at a later time you won’t need to swap it out! Don’t get confused, this clutch is still rated at 450 rwhp because it will take it. The LS7 is equipped in a vehicle that makes the same horsepower; however it cannot take consistent abuse like ours. You mix this with the fact that the LS7 unit doesn’t come complete with everything you need nor does it come with a warranty; it’s a no-brainer. This clutch is rated at 450hp/tq. It will take a beating on the street with some drag racing as well. This clutch should be used on cars that have 450rwhp or less and frequent the track a few times a year.
