    Due to the relatively large torque of the racing car, the most direct way to improve the transmission efficiency without stepping on the clutch is of course to replace the racing clutch with higher efficiency, including the clutch friction plate with higher friction coefficient and the clutch pressure plate with greater strength. For skilled racers, when changing gears in areas with high torque and high torque after replacing the clutch, it can effectively shorten the clutch slippage time and improve the transmission efficiency. However, the clutch friction force of the racing car is too large, the clutch diaphragm spring is very hard, the pressing force of the pressure plate is too strong, and there is almost no semi-linkage state.

    Wet clutches are completely sealed, with oil between the clutch plates for lubrication; dry clutches, on the other hand, have no oil between the clutch plates. Because there is no liquid inside, the dry clutch cover can be opened at any time and clutch activity can be seen. At the same time, because there is no oil to lubricate, the dry clutch will make a loud noise when changing gears, and it will become louder with the increase of use time.

    Dry clutches are suitable for racing. Because there is no oil inside, the dry clutch can be easily disassembled and replaced with different clutch plate combinations; at the same time, because the clutch cannot be squeezed for a long time on the track, the disadvantage of the dry clutch being tiring becomes less obvious here.
