4L80E or TH400 Direct Clutch PowerPack with G3 Clutches, Performance Steels, Anti-Drag Inserts. Alto Number 031756AHP 1964-Up.
G3 Friction Clutches:
Alto Red Eagle invented Performance material but G3 revolutionized it. G3 Friction Material is our highest energy material available. It was engineered to meet the demands of high horsepower diesel performance market.
The friction material is specially formulated with graphitic carbon-based particles for minimizing wear and maximizing heat resistance. G3 is engineered to be the most durable product for high horsepower high torque applications.
- Higher torque capacity
- Improved shift – less noise and lower vibration (NVH)
- Consistent performance despite vehicle use and driver style
- Higher Energy capacity
- Reduced clutch burn out
Performance Steels start with standard Kolene and then run through our proprietary process of polishing to lower and reduce the range of the Ra value. The Performance Steel improves shifts while maintaining the enhanced wear and fatigue resistance imparted by the Kolene process.
- Strengthened wear and fatigue characteristics
- Increased heat resistance – reduced hot spotting and warpage
- Increased lubricity for improved shift-ability minimizing noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH)
- Prevents oil and friction material discoloration and contamination
