Official Carbonetic/THMRacing press release
World Famous Carbonetic an Official Sponsor for THM Racing!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – March 2, 2010
Glenview, IL – Carbonetic has become a household name to motorsport enthusiasts. Their products are bar-none when it comes to vital components in racing. Utilizing carbon fiber as their main source of material in their products, friction coefficiencies are highly increased to offer longevity and durability. Carbonetic has been seen on some of the most recognizable race and drift cars all around the world and now they make their way into Redline Time Attack with the THM Racing team.
Being supplied for the THM Racing STi is a brand new product that is not out on the market called the “Carbonetic Blade Clutch Kit”. With the new Carbonetic line, THM Racing will be investing R&D time on the race track for Carbonetic and the testing will also determine which kit will be best suited for the THM Racing STi. Specific data has yet to be compiled for the new clutch kit but what we can tell you is that it has a threshold of 650lbs. of torque and comes with a lightweight flywheel for faster response and lowered inertia, pressure plate and the amount of discs that will be used will be determined by the testing of the new line. With this new setup, THM Racing will be reducing quite a bit of drivetrain weight as this will result in a more efficient power transfer to the wheels, quicker acceleration as well as efficiently hold the power that the STi will produce.
In conjunction with the new Blade clutch kit, Carbonetic has provided front and rear carbon L.S.D.’s for the THM Racing STi – a crucial must for any track vehicle. The front differential system will be replaced with Carbonetic’s 1.5-Way L.S.D. and the rear will be converted to a 2-Way carbon L.S.D. These components will allow the THM Racing STi to reduce under/over steer and enter and exit corners much faster with added traction. Rather than progressive traction which can hurt lap times, the Carbonetic system gives the THM Racing STi stable and linear traction during acceleration and deceleration which can improve lap times.
With the support of Carbonetic and their track-proven products, THM Racing is highly confident to prove exceptional results on the race track. We can’t wait until race season starts!
