Friction plates

See also Clutch Types

The friction plate (or driven plate) is the clutch plate that gets sandwiched between the flywheel and pressure plate and takes up the drive when the clutch pedal is released.

The verto plate has anti-judder springs in the middle of it, and both types of plate are interchangeable. The Metro Turbo uses an uprated 'old-style' plate in a standard Verto clutch. An AP Racing friction plate is a good choice for fast-road applications. A scintered or paddle clutch is a race plate and has a very on/off operation characteristic. Not good for road use.
