After months of testing, racing, and development at SDRC Top Gun, Winter Midwest Champs, and the 2016 Reedy Race, the next generation Nova Centric drive plates are now available. In testing, drivers noticed the Nova Centric plates provide more instant punch for short-takeoff jumps while still maintaining the smooth throttle and brake feel the Nova is known for.
The Nova Centric plates remove the washer stack from the Nova design with a detailed self-centering milled slot in the center of the plate. In addition to self-centering, the new plates have 6 vent holes in a swirl pattern to help cool the system as well as catch debris as the pads wear.
Nova Centric Plate Features:
Pro-tip: After the initial 3-4 runs on the clutch with new pads, disassemble the clutch and wipe down all the pads and plates with a lint-free towel. Re-assemble at the same spring tension setting. This method has proven to extend clutch life and provide the most consistent performance.
