Clutch Kites enable a vehicle to change to a new gear by disconnecting the car or truck's transmission from its engine. A functional Clutch Kit switches gears using a flywheel and friction disks; when the clutch pedal is depressed, the flywheel and clutch plate separate, uncoupling the vehicle's engine from the wheels which allows the engine to run without moving the vehicle. A Clutch Kit is a key part of the transmission enabling your current gear to be released from the vehicle's driveshaft so that an additional larger or smaller gear to be used. Usually a vehicle clutch is a long-lasting element, with use the mechanisms can become worn and need a new part. In vehicles using an automatic transmission, the Clutch Kit is incorporated into a transmission system, however stick shifts require the motorist to engage the clutch on their own, usually by using a pedal by the brake pedal.
