This month we say hello to our newest partner, Exedy!

Although Exedy supplies clutches to the OEM market, most of us recognize the brand as supplying high performance clutches for tuned and motorsport applications. The company has decades of history developing clutches for Japanese racing series, and this knowledge has been developed in to the high power clutches of today that we’re all familiar with. Their clutches have successfully competed in virtually all motorsports, including Pikes Peak, Time Attack, Rallying and Formula One.

With Drifting’s massive performance and reliability demands on drivetrain components, it acts as the perfect platform for developing and testing clutch applications. Exedy recognise this, and sponsor some pretty well known cars and drivers from grassroots to pro level, including high profile Formula D drivers like Vaughn Gittin Jr, as well as other well known international drivers.
