When Hyundai Australia decided to enter their i30 N performance hatch in one of the most demanding tarmac rallies on earth, Targa Tasmania, there was only one choice for a motorsport clutch upgrade. Xtreme Clutch supplied a 240mm alloy cover ceramic upgrade for the vehicle, helping to reduce rotational intertia improving the shift feel and engine response. The ceramic friction disc also helped the team deal with the high temperatures the clutch experiences in these events. The i30 N was driven by Brendan Reeves alongside navigator Rhianon Gelsomino and finished 6th in GT2 Class and 15th overall at Targa Tasmania 2019.

We have run an Xtreme multi plate clutch in our R34 GTR time attack car since day one and they have never let us down!
Competition drifting pushes cars to their absolute limits mechanically so reliability is key. I’ve been using an Xtreme 230mm twin plate clutch for two seasons now and it’s proven to be stronger than many other brands used previously. We inspected it after the first season and it looked brand new!
