The ACT Ford Focus ST clutch kit features a heavy duty pressure plate which provides a much higher clamping power than stock. This results in a slightly harder pedal pressure to disengage the clutch but is also what allows for the higher torque capacity. The clutch disc itself is a rigid hub. Normally, this would indicate a little rougher clutch engagement but because this clutch is made for use with the factory, dual mass flywheel, the vibration and harshness is reduced at the flyhweel more than with an aftermarket, single mass flyhweel which helps make up for the solid disc type. The disc is a full face disc which features clutch pad material covering the entire disc, instead of being segmented like a 6 pad disc. This is a great setup for high performance street use in the ST. Included with the ACT Focus ST clutch kit is the throwout bearing which is integrated with the new slave cylinder. An alignment tool is also provided to make sure the installation goes easier.
This clutch is rated to 445 ft. lbs. or torque at the flywheel. This would be a great clutch for any stock turbo Focus ST with or without supporting power modifications.
All individual components are available separately for any future replacement needs.
