Nissan Skyline GT-R Clutch Weights


USA legal R32 GT-R from importavehicle.com

Came across this a few days ago, where people were talking about clutch weights. Since I had one or four clutches in the garage, I decided to weigh them.


First up, stock R32 PUSH style clutch. This is an early clutch. Some R32 are push, some are pull. The later cars are pull.

39.86 lbs (18.08 KG) with bolts. 


Just a hair under 40 lbs for the stock clutch assembly with bolts.

Next up, the NISMO Coppermix twin plate clutch.

33.5 lbs (15.19 KG) for the NISMO Coppermix twin plate with bolts
33.5 lbs for the NISMO Coppermix. Six lbs lighter than stock. Not a huge improvement, but an improvement for rotating weight.

25.7 lbs (11.65 KG) Ogura twin carbon clutch

Now this one has a significant weight savings over stock. An Ogura twin plate carbon clutch. This style of carbon clutch is carbon and steel.

OS Giken Quad plate clutch at 35 lbs (15.96 KG). Getting up near stock weight for this clutch


Four plates, lots of weight. 35 lbs for this OS Giken Quad plate clutch

Tilton carbon carbon triple plate - 19 lbs (8.6 KG)

The Tilton carbon carbon triple plate, with flywheel is 19 lbs.  This is the type of clutch, you really notice how much quicker the engine comes up.
