Max-Torque clutches are rapidly becoming the more popular clutch in karting. Not only for prokarts but also in Honda cadet racing. Max-Torque clutches, unlike Magnum or Noram, have six shoes which evenly distribute the centrifugal loading force over 345 degrees of the drum circumference which lessens drum distortion. With just two shoes in the others, it cannot possible engage as quick.
A single, continuous, stainless steel garter spring retains the six floating shoes to maintain uniformity and consistency of engagement and disengagement of the clutch shoes. Again, this is not featured in any of the other main clutches used in the UK.
BEWARE - Max-Torque has a great name which is massive in USA, and because of this it has attracted cheap Chinese copies which our competitors sell. Only buy from registered dealers, including ourselves, who sell as MAX-TORQUE. Any similar names are most likely copies which have inconstant weighted shoes and cannot take the heat which is needed for most engines, and also break after little use. We've had many issues from these copies, including the ones where sellers use 'MT' as the name pretending to be an abbreviation of Max-Torque.
