Driven Plates are available in four different configurations which can accommodate a wide range of road, race and rally applications.
SPRING CENTRE ORGANIC:
This driven plate design features an adaptor plate and retainer plate that are riveted together with shouldered stop pins. Located between them in slots in the hub flange and damper springs arranged radially around the hub centre. The hub can rotate within specific limits to compress the springs thus smoothing out any torsional fluctuations in the drive line. damping is provided by friction washers fitted between the hub, retainer and adaptor plate.
RIGID CENTRE ORGANIC:
The rigid type of driven plate is not fitted any form of drive line cushioning. It is specially designed for arduous working conditions where the degree of refinement is secondary to strength and durability. It is less comfortable than a sprung centred plate and is suitable for low level competition and road use.
SPRING CENTRE CERAMETALLIC (PADDLE):
Designed for heavy duty or 'Off road' applications. The sprung centre cearmetallic driven plate features a sprung, or rigid center configuration and uses a rigid adaptor plate withoit cushion segments. The driven plate incorporates cerametallic pads, as illustrated, which are designed to withstand the high te,peratures associated with high energy input competition applications. Not suitable for road use.
RIGID CENTRE CERAMETALLIC (PADDLE):
The rigid type of driven plate is not fitted with any form of drive line cushioning. It is designed for arduous working conditions where the degree of refinement is secondary to strength and durability and offers the heat resistance advantages of the cerametallic pad design.Not suitable for road use.
