    Structure Mechanics Corporation has officially ceased production of axle clutches and parts.

    There are no more new clutches left but there are some bits and pieces. If you need spares for Daytona, call soon. When they’re gone, they’re gone forever!

    I understand the financial side of this but I’m sorry to them go.  Another nail in the Road Racing coffin.

      Wow sorry to hear this.  I have three of the sprint clutches.  They are pretty bullet proof.

    I got the last primary weights but I’m still trying to find a left link.


    If anyone has an extra one or 2 I sure could use them.

    I heard a rumor that the SMC Axle clutch business was sold. Not sure to who, if this is accurate or wishful thinking.

    Anyone know for sure?

    SMC is in the process of building 300 new axle clutch discs. I estimate that they will be available to racers in approximately 30 days. When they are ready, they will be listed on the SMC online store. http://www.kartclutches.com/store/

    Other axle clutch parts might be manufactured if there is sufficient demand. Please email requests to tcf@fuse.net and type “axle clutches” on the subject line.

    Also, John Scavuzzo has a large supply of links. Perhaps someone can supply his contact information.
