When a new clutch kit is installed the flywheel must be either replaced or ground. This is because excessive heat from normal driving changes the structure of your flywheel surface which creates less friction affecting the performance of your clutch. If this is not done common issues experienced are shudder and or slipping after installing the new clutch kit.

Why grind when you can replace?

There are three main technical reasons to replace a conventional flywheel instead of grinding it.

  1. Issues caused by a bad grind. There are various issues that can come out of a poor grind, these include;  (a) Flywheel surface being too smooth which can cause shutter or slipping. (b) Incorrect flywheel step or recess ground; in the case where a flywheel is not flat the recess or step must be maintained. Failure to do this can cause engagement or disengagement issues.
  2. Risk of catastrophic failure; in situations where the flywheel is placed under extreme heat damage can occur to the steel microstructure weakening the flywheel which can lead to cracking or destruction of the flywheel.
  3. Decreasing the overall stack height. Modern actuation systems have limited bearing height adjustment so after 2-3 grinds the overall stack height of the clutch system can be reduced enough to cause disengagement issues.
It's not uncommon for Hilux owners to modify their vehicle for more extreme off-road driving and when these modifications are done it's important to also upgrade the clutch system. For these enthusiasts, a clutch modification that can handle greater torque while also increasing heat dissipation and providing a superb pedal feel is essential. Clutch Industries has been engineering different options for Toyota Hilux for decades, one of the most popular products being the 4Terrain Ultimate brand.

How To Improve The Fuel Efficiency Of Your 4×4: Unleash Your Inner Eco-Warrior

*|MC:SUBJECT|*

4x4s are notorious for being gas guzzlers, but that doesn't mean you have to resign yourself to a life at the mercy of the pump. With a few simple tweaks and adjustments, you can significantly improve your 4×4's fuel efficiency and save money while enjoying the open road. Here's how:

Tame the Tires

  • Check the pressure regularly: Underinflated tires increase rolling resistance, burning more fuel. Check your tire pressure regularly and inflate them to the manufacturer's recommended level, including the spare.
  • Consider all-terrain tires: Ditch those aggressive off-road tires for all-terrain ones. While they offer less traction on rough terrain, they offer better fuel efficiency on paved roads.
  • Mind the weight: Heavy tires weigh down your vehicle, requiring more fuel to move. Consider upgrading to lighter wheels and tires if you're not planning any serious off-road adventures.
Maintain the Machine
  • Keep it clean: A dirty air filter restricts airflow, forcing your engine to work harder and consume more fuel. Clean or replace your air filter regularly as per the manufacturer's recommendations.
  • Regular servicing: Regular engine maintenance ensures your 4×4 runs smoothly and efficiently. Get your oil changed and engine tuned up according to the manufacturer's schedule.
  • Address issues promptly: Ignoring minor problems can lead to bigger, more fuel-guzzling issues down the road. Address any maintenance issues promptly to prevent further damage and efficiency loss.
Shift Your Habits
  • Anticipate traffic: Avoid sudden accelerations and braking by anticipating traffic flow. This smoother driving style saves fuel and reduces wear and tear on your vehicle.
  • Plan your route: Planning your route can help you avoid unnecessary stops and starts, maximizing fuel efficiency. Try carpooling or using public transportation for short trips.
  • Cruise control: Utilize cruise control on highways to maintain a steady speed and reduce fuel consumption.
  • Reduce weight: Get rid of unnecessary weight in your vehicle. Every extra kilogram adds to fuel consumption.
  • Avoid unnecessary accessories: Remove roof racks, bull bars, and other external accessories when not in use. These add wind resistance and reduce fuel efficiency.
  • Air conditioning: Use your air conditioning wisely. While it's tempting to blast it on hot days, driving with open windows at low speeds is actually more fuel-efficient.

Invest for the Future

  • Upgrade your spark plugs: Consider upgrading to high-performance spark plugs. These can improve ignition efficiency and fuel economy.
  • Consider eco-friendly modifications: Explore eco-friendly modifications like chipping your engine, which can optimize performance and fuel delivery.
Conventional clutches, over time, can develop wear and tear. This wear leads to slippage, where the clutch disc fails to fully engage the flywheel. This slippage translates to wasted power and lost fuel efficiency. High-performance clutches, however, are built with superior materials and designs to minimize wear and maximize engagement.

Here's how high-performance clutches translate to fuel savings:
  • Reduced Slipping: By minimizing slippage, the engine transmits power more directly to the wheels, reducing wasted energy and fuel.
  • Increased Torque Capacity: High-performance clutches handle increased torque output, allowing the engine to operate at its optimal RPM range for better fuel efficiency.
  • Improved Drivetrain Efficiency: A clutch that operates smoothly and efficiently reduces stress on the drivetrain, further contributing to better fuel economy.
  • Longer Lifespan: High-performance clutches offer longer lifespans than conventional ones, minimizing the need for frequent replacements and saving you money in the long run.
Investing in a high-performance clutch may seem like a minor upgrade, but its
impact on fuel economy and overall performance can be significant. So, whether you're a seasoned off-roader or a daily driver seeking optimal efficiency, consider unleashing the power of a high-performance clutch in your 4×4.


By adopting these fuel-efficient practices, you can significantly improve your 4×4's performance and reduce your environmental impact. Remember, every little bit counts. So, embrace the journey and become an eco-warrior on the open road.

Bonus Tip: Track your fuel economy! Use a fuel-tracking app or log your mileage and fuel consumption to monitor your progress and identify areas for further improvement.

Off-roading is a thrilling and adventurous pursuit that attracts enthusiasts from all walks of life. Whether you're a seasoned trailblazer or a newbie to the world of 4×4 vehicles, one thing is certain: the desire to enhance your vehicle's performance is a shared passion. Customizing your 4×4 is not only about personalization but also about optimizing its capabilities for the toughest terrains. 

The Foundation: A Reliable 4×4 Vehicle

Before diving into the realm of customization, it's essential to start with a solid foundation. Your choice of a 4×4 vehicle plays a crucial role in determining the level of performance you can achieve. Be it an SUV, truck, or crossover, ensure that your 4×4 is in good mechanical condition. Regular maintenance and servicing should be a priority before considering any upgrades.
 

Suspension Systems
One of the first modifications to consider is upgrading your vehicle's suspension system. A quality suspension lift kit can provide greater ground clearance, allowing your 4×4 to tackle rough and uneven terrain more effectively. This not only enhances your vehicle's off-road capabilities but also provides a smoother ride on challenging trails.

Off-Road Tires

Investing in the right set of off-road tires can make a world of difference in your 4×4's performance. Off-road tires are designed with deeper treads and reinforced sidewalls, providing better traction and durability in challenging conditions. Choosing the right type of off-road tire depends on your specific off-roading preferences, from mud-terrain tires for mudding to all-terrain tires for a mix of surfaces.

Winches and Recovery Gear
No matter how capable your 4×4 is, there's always a chance you'll get stuck or need assistance. Installing a winch on the front or rear of your vehicle can be a lifesaver when it comes to self-recovery or helping out a fellow off-roader. Additionally, carrying recovery gear such as straps, shackles, and a high-lift jack is essential for any off-road adventure.

Performance Enhancements
If you're in search of increased torque, you might want to explore performance enhancements. Consider upgrades like cold air intakes, exhaust systems, and engine tuning. These modifications are designed to enhance your vehicle's performance, making it more responsive and better equipped to tackle demanding terrain.

When increasing torque it's important to consider upgrading driveline components such as the clutch to ensure you're able to deliver that power to the ground. An off-road performance clutch such as 4Terrain improves on the OEM clutch in several ways. Firstly, it ramps up torque capacity through a high clamp pressure plate and the use of different friction materials. Additionally, it plays a role in cooling through a grooved pressure plate, which, in turn, allows the friction material to operate at lower temperatures, resulting in a higher coefficient of friction. The outcome? Significantly improved torque capacity and an extended clutch lifespan.
 

Lighting Upgrades

Off-roading often takes place in low-light conditions or at night. Equipping your 4×4 with high-quality LED light bars, spotlights, or floodlights can improve visibility and safety. Proper illumination can help you navigate through tricky trails and avoid potential hazards.

Skid Plates and Armor

Protecting the undercarriage of your 4×4 is crucial, especially when tackling rocky or uneven terrain. Skid plates and armor can shield vital components like the engine, transmission, and fuel tank from damage. These additions enhance the durability of your vehicle and prevent costly repairs.

 

Customizing your 4×4 for maximum performance is a thrilling journey that allows you to tailor your vehicle to your unique off-roading needs. From suspension systems and off-road tires to winches and lighting upgrades, the possibilities for enhancing your 4×4 are virtually endless. However, it's crucial to approach customization with a clear plan, a budget in mind, and safety as the top priority. Whether you're looking to conquer challenging trails or simply improve the aesthetic of your 4×4, the world of upgrades and modifications is waiting for you to explore. So, gear up and get ready for an unforgettable off-road adventure with your personalized and performance-optimized 4×4.

In a world that's becoming increasingly connected and urbanized, the call of the open road and uncharted territories has led to the resurgence of a timeless adventure known as overlanding. This unique form of travel isn't just about getting from point A to point B; it's about embracing the journey, exploring the world's most remote corners, and discovering the untamed beauty of our planet.

What is Overlanding?

Overlanding is a form of self-reliant, long-distance travel that takes adventurers far from paved roads and into the heart of nature. It's a lifestyle that combines elements of off-roading, camping, and exploration, where the journey itself is as important as the destinations.

The Overland Vehicle

Central to overlanding is the choice of the right vehicle. Overlanders often opt for rugged, off-road-capable vehicles like 4×4 trucks, SUVs, or purpose-built off-road vehicles. These vehicles are modified and equipped to handle challenging terrains, from rocky mountain trails to deep desert sands.

Adventure and Exploration

At the heart of overlanding is the spirit of adventure and exploration. Overlanders venture into remote areas, far from tourist hotspots, to experience the world's natural beauty, wildlife, and diverse cultures. Whether it's the African savannah, the Australian Outback, or the winding trails of the Americas, overlanding offers an authentic encounter with the world.

Self-Reliance and Survival Skills

Overlanders often develop a wide range of self-reliance and survival skills. They learn to navigate using maps and GPS systems, set up camp in various environments, purify water, and even perform basic vehicle maintenance. This self-sufficiency fosters a deeper connection with the environment and a sense of empowerment.

Community and Camaraderie

The overlanding community is tight-knit and supportive. Enthusiasts often share experiences, tips, and advice on forums, social media groups, and at gatherings like Overland Expos. This sense of camaraderie creates a global network of like-minded adventurers who are always ready to lend a helping hand or share a story around the campfire.
