If your transmission system has a drive shaft that connects a rear differential to a rear wheel, you have what are called half shafts. Two of these shafts are needed in order to form one rear axle, which is where they get their name. As part of the drive shaft, the half shafts exist to help bring torque from the engine to the wheels, creating movement. Because they are carriers of torque, they are subject to stress and damage. Replace or upgrade your standard half shafts to ensure torque is properly delivered to all parts of the transmission system and wheels.
A clutch disc is an integral part of the drive shaft, and is designed to transmit rotation. The clutch disc is lined with a friction material, and are pressed tightly together against the flywheel. When the clutch pedal is depressed, the pressure plate is pushed or pulled, allowing the clutch disc to rotate freely. Because friction is a basic part of this components function, it can get worn and damaged if it is not replaced. Keep your transmission running smoothly with an upgrade to your existing clutch disc.
Keep overheating in check with a transmission cooler kit. Designed to cool the transmission fluid and transmission system when temperatures get too high, these transmission coolers help prevent damage to the transmission and overall failure. Find the best transmission cooler kit to fit your engine's needs and keep your transmission running at its peak.
In your transmission system, the differential is the component that is capable of transmitting torque and rotation through the three shafts. The differential is housed in a cover, which can be upgraded and replaced with an aftermarket modification. Be sure that this important transmission component functions properly and is adequately protected with a high-quality custom differential cover.
For your internal combustion engine, the drive shaft transmits torque and rotation to other components of the drive train. Most components can't be connected directly due to distance or necessity of movement. Because they carry torque, drive shafts are susceptible to torsion and shear, which means they need to be strong enough to handle the stress of the torque as well as be light enough to keep them from creating additional inertia. Upgrade to a high-performance custom aftermarket drive shaft to optimize your transmission system.
Flywheels are an important part of the transmission system, and they serve as a storage device for rotational energy. They steady the rotation of the shaft when torque is impressed upon it. Flywheels serve as an important component of the clutch system, being spun with the clutch disc. The friction discs of the clutch system are pressed against the flywheel with springs. Upgrading or replacing your standard flywheel with a high-performance custom aftermarket flywheel should help increase engine performance and keep the drive shaft steady.
