Serpent True motion clutch

The development of the Centax clutch continues with the release of Serpent’s new true motion clutch. Serpent’s designer Ron Ton was the innovator of this revolutionary clutch system in the mid nineties and soon it became the industry standard in onroad racing as all other brands adopted similar systems. Many variations have been tried, but in the end it still comes close to the original idea. In the latest development the tapered shape has been moved from the flywheel to the pressure plate instead, improving punch and reliability. Serpent continues the use of the hard Centax spring to set preload, as its less critical and fast to adjust. The 1/10 scale Centax True motion clutch has the red shoe and steel clutch housing, while the 1/8 scale Centax True motion clutch has the black shoe and aluminium clutch housing as standard.
