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.

Customizing Your 4×4: Upgrades And Modifications For Maximum Performance

*|MC:SUBJECT|*


 

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.
