The clutch plate in this BMW E36 / E46 clutch kit utilises a paddle design, resulting in a clutch rated to 705nm / 520 ft/lbs of torque. This means the kit is suitable for all performance needs. The clutch is ideal for track and drift cars who don’t want the clutch to be the part of there car to let them down. The size of the clutch is 240mm and this kit comes with all bolts required for the single mass conversion.
This product is suitable for the vehicles within the stated fitment list that uses a 22 SPLINE drive shaft.
If your vehicle is a 10 SPLINE drive shaft then check out the following product RTS-3646SMF

Benefits of an Single Mass Flywheel.
The SMF replaces the out dated DMF. We have designed the SMF to carry the same weight as a DMF but the springs are transferred to the Twin Friction drive plate. This helps the application transfer heat more economically. The springs in the drive Plate allow for the standard peddle feel and removes any judder as with the DMF design.
RTS unique “Twin Friction” (drive plate) has been developed using a unique flywheel side friction material whilst adopting a segmented pressure plate face. The aramid friction exhibits 50% less wear than a conventional drive plate friction material.
This material also reduces the effects of fade. Fade is the decline in the clutch system’s ability to transmit torque as operating temperatures increases. These features in combination with the previously mentioned micro-structure of spheroidal casting and ER2 technology allows the clutch kit to dissipate heat far more effectively, allowing the clutch to run cooler for longer. RTS kit has been designed with a higher clamp load enabling the clutch system to transmit 60% more torque over the standard clutch kit and is suitable for every day driving, fast road and track/circuit racing whilst maintaining user-friendly driving experience. RTS Twin Friction kit has been designed with a higher clamp load allowing.
RTSHD-5254SMF (Organic) has been designed and manufactured to significantly exceed the original clutch system whilst also maintaining OE pedal effort, thus delivering a torque capacity of 365 lbs/ft of torque.
RTSTF-5254SMF (Twin friction) has been designed and manufactured to significantly exceed the original clutch system whilst also maintaining OE pedal effort, thus delivering a torque capacity of 440 lbs/ft of torque.
RTSPC-5254SMF (5 paddle) has been designed and manufactured to significantly exceed the original clutch system whilst also maintaining OE pedal. effort, thus delivering a torque capacity of 520 lbs/ft of torque.
