Hey bros, i was going to change to trinity 6 puck clutch but was told by my mechanic not to do so as he mentioned trinity clutches have a high tendency of it's clutch fork breaking.

He mentioned that trinity clutch is very good in terms of performance. It holds the torque very tightly and well. However, due to the high pressure, it's clutch fork tends to give way pretty quickly. He has repaired many cars on trinity clutch with its fork breaking. Estimated to break at around 20,000 - 30.000km.

Just curious does any bros here on trinity 6 puck faced such problem before? Thanks!!

Trinity comes with its own clutch fork? Clutch fork is stock one leh and from my understanding you will use back the stock fork when you change clutch. I've also heard stories where clutch fork break when on Exedy 3-puck. I think it depends on how you use the clutch. If you keep throwing it and stabbing the clutch pedal every time you shift then your fork will give way sooner or later. If you engage in a bout of 'highly spirited driving' occasionally, I think no worries.

was on trinity 6 puck with exedy pressure plate which was meant for exedy 3 puck. sg dont bring in trinity pressure plate. the fork did break. hint: no springs in the middle of trinity 6 puck. give and take between performance and safety/cost.

Think this was ever discussed in forum before...differences btw Exedy 3-puck & Trinity, differences btw solid hub & sprung hub, pros & cons etc.

Anyway been on Exedy 3-puck for the last 3 yrs? So far so good. No abnormal signs yet...touch wood first..lol...only clutch pump replaced. Mileage is clocked at above average rate. Each set of clutch & pressure plate lasts about a yr.

Bro our CS3 is also dry clutch. Those noisy sound if I not wrong is multi-plate clutch.

according to gurus, those clutches offer good bite and minimal transmission loss. wear out damn fast too.. but the sound is music to my ears :D

Let's say a normal clutch plate can take up to 100 Nm of torque. Having two clutch plates allows you to take 200 Nm of torque (100 per plate). So a multi plate clutch allows for higher torque applications, where a single plate clutch cannot handle the torque and will slip.

For clutches, the pressure plate is the one that provides the clamping force and is one of the factors as to how much torque the clutch plate can hold. The pressure plate is directly connected to the pedal, and that's why aftermarket clutches increase the pedal effort to release the clutch.

u wan the cling cling cling sound, can opt for carbonetic clutch ^^ haha ! good clutch and good musics. head tuner but after ppl turn head will say "chek, a lancer cs3 only. change this type of clutch for what !" unless u lup turbo, if not these type of clutch on NA doesnt offers much usage and performance :)
