Assembly of the engine and gearbox LADA 2110 and 2108 is paid a lot of attention. But do not forget about the main element that allows you to transfer the engine torque to the transmission. It's all about the clutch.
The standard LADA clutch is capable of transmitting a torque of no more than 180 Nm. Any less accelerated LADA engine has torque values above 180 Nm. To transmit a higher torque, it is necessary to use metal-ceramic discs. LADA clutch disc with a standard organic overlay does not have such a slip as discs with a metal-ceramic overlay. As for the ceramic clutch discs, they need to be pressed harder against the flywheel. This task requires a clutch basket with an increased clamping torque. Otherwise, the LADA sports clutch will not be fully functional.
The design of sports clutch discs can be different. It may differ in the number of overlays on the disk, the presence of a damper, and even the number of disks. The greater the number of overlays, the higher the potential for disk engagement. Sports cars use non-damping discs to transfer torque to the transmission as quickly as possible. Although, it does not extinguish shock loads and can lead to the destruction of the transmission. The sports range of the gearbox and even the LADA differential block (LSD) can also fail.
The most important role in a sports clutch is played by the clutch basket (the pressure disc of the clutch). The more powerful the springs are, the more effectively the metal-ceramic disc will work.
Sports racing cars use non-damping two-disc sports clutches that can transmit engine torque of more than 500 Nm. But the use of such kits is very problematic in the urban cycle due to the huge discomfort. The cost of such kits can be five to six times higher than the cost of any other less civil metal-ceramic clutch.
