DYAD means “two units acting as one,” which is an apt description for the unit. Designed for extreme horsepower and torque outputs, the DYAD system combines several of Centerforce’s patented technologies into a single package. The use of multiple discs allows a vast increase in holding capacity from the pressure plate and increases the number of friction surfaces from two to four.
They do this by using a dual disc system that operates much like a single disc, and has the drivability of a stock clutch. While one of the discs have splines for the input shaft, the other is a floating disc, and is driven by the splined disc. This increased holding capacity means the Centerforce DYAD clutch can tackle upwards to 1,200 ft-lbs. of torque while maintaining some semblance of driving manners.
