ScienceofSpeed Sport Clutch for Honda S2000: Increased power capacity while maintaining a light pedal effort and smooth engagement.
Since 2002, ScienceofSpeed has been selling and installing various aftermarket clutches for the S2000. In our experience, aftermarket clutches have often had too stiff pedal pressure or too harsh of engagement. By testing pressure plate and clutch designs, ScienceofSpeed has developed a clutch that offers a factory like pedal pressure and smooth engagement.
The clutch is an important interface to your car. If the clutch is difficult to press, or difficult to engage, the enjoyment in driving the car suffers. The ScienceofSpeed Sport Clutch uses a pressure plate design that is very similar to the factory clutch - only minimally firmer, it gives an increased sporty feel.
The ScienceofSpeed Sport Clutch for Honda S2000 is rated for applications up to 325 lb/ft at the flywheel (approximately 400 wheel horsepower) - the perfect pair for the sporty naturally aspirated S2000 or the moderate supercharged or turbocharged S2000. Increased torque capacity is achieved using a pressure plate with an increased clamp force (33%) with a unique geometry that results in only a moderate increase in pedal pressure. If capacity beyond 325 lb/ft is required, ScienceofSpeed offers the ScienceofSpeed Sport 400 Hybrid Clutch Kit.
There are some very significant differences between the components utilized in the ScienceofSpeed Sport Clutch and other aftermarket clutches. In our experience, the components used in other manufacture's aftermarket clutches have been inconsistent with clamping force varying up to 20%. Visible short cuts in materials, design, and assembly have been evident. Using high quality Japanese made components, including the disc sourced from Honda's original equipment manufacture, we are able to use the highest quality components available. The slight increase in cost of using these high quality components is by far justified due to the expense involved in removing and replacing a clutch in the S2000.
