Ive been drifting competitively for over 10 years now. Throughout those years Ive had a huge amount of clutch dramas/failures. Some of which have cost me big time.
With my program getting more and more professional, the Drift cars are expected to perform 100% all the time.
Drift cars endure so much abuse through the drive train and there always has to be a weak link. If your clutch is too aggressive, you’ll destroy your gearbox, tail shaft or diff. But if the clutch is setup to suit the application perfectly it will work properly and wear as expected.
This is where my review comes into it all. When you ring Direct clutch and discuss what you are wanting to do with your car. Their knowledge/experience in the motorsport world makes life so simple. They will make a clutch to suit your application and explain how it will wear. They give you everything you need to know to keep an eye on the clutch.
4 years running the Direct clutches in my Drift cars and not one single issue. I’ve even got one of their clutches in my Overseas Drift car I’m hiring because I know I can trust it. Thank you guys again for making life easier for us Drifters. Legends!!!

“Had my clutch replaced in my rx7, extremely professional, knowledgeable and friendly workshop with a high quality of work. Highly recommend.”
Had a modified heavy duty clutch done on my Turbo 105 Series Cruiser, during the installation they accidentally disconnected an inter-cooler pipe. I’m a business owner and I understand these things happen but judge a business on how they handle the situation once something goes wrong. In my case the owner Jerry handled the situation well and my case was sorted admirably. I would recommend this business based on integrity.
Best place to go , to get the best clutch.
The guys down at Direct Clutch are awesome. Ordered my clutch at 8:00am and it was ready to pick up at 10:00am same day and was $250 cheaper than anywhere else in Brisbane. Jerry helped me with everything I needed and this in now the only place that will get my business. Thanks Guys.
Excellent communication from Drew at Direct Clutch Services. Had an uprated clutch installed, they stuck to the initial quote, no nasty surprises, and delivered on time. Very happy and will definitely be going back for the LSD install. Highly recommended.
Outstanding customer service and friendly bunch.
Great service. Wrong part. No worries we will find one. Love to see this attitude in the Auto industry.

Direct clutch sorted out my slipping clutch and fitted a new clutch but didn’t pressure me into a new flywheel like the other shops were trying to as it didn’t require a new flywheel ,great service and at the right price.
Having made the mistake of buying a cheap over the counter clutch kit from a major auto parts reseller I learnt the hard way. Buy from the industries most well respected authority.
Got a clutch for my old sub here. No lend-vlcar, but the price was cheap enough to justify an uber over. Follow up questions were answered and discussed well.
Knowledgeable staff and provide great service
The Best place, great service and products. I don’t go any where else.
Always impressed with the service.
Dead set legends,fixed my clutch problem that 3 other workshops couldn’t.
Very efficient ,delivered my clutch on the same day to the Mt Gravatt Nissan dealership. Competitive price & fantastic service from Drew. (2013 Navara D40 dual mass conversion to single mass, HD supplied) Thanks guys.
We only use Direct Clutch, the guys always go above and beyond all our other suppliers.

We ordered wrong clutch a few months ago sent it straight back to direct clutch and forgot contact details. Drew replaced item with correct clutch . And tracked us down ( as we moved in meantime). Found us and wanted to refund money. So brilliant service and prices plus honest people. Great job Direct Clutch.
Awesome service received today from Drew & the staff. You guys went above and beyond to get our Ford custom clutch sorted. Very impressed with the level of service and special mention to Dave and the young fella for staying back late to get the job done. Thank You so much !!
Could not recommend Direct Clutch Services Enough. Drew and the team where easy to talk to, advised me on the best option to suit my application and had it delivered to my door in three days. Competitive pricing and a good reputation, Thanks again !
Professional experience based advice. Incredible service and delivery. The DCS clutch feels strong and has made launch considerably better! Ready for the rigours of Drag Challenge thanks to your awesome service!
Direct Clutch have been a pleasure to deal with. After been stuffed around elsewhere I was recommended to speak to Drew at direct clutch. Drew was great to deal with from the get go. I order the clutch Monday morning had it Tuesday morning in Sydney. I will be recommending direct clutch services to friends and family. Thanks again! I look forward to dealing with Drew / Direct clutch in the future.
Always get my clutches through drew at direct clutch, putting down almost 500kw in my drift car with a clutch rated to 300kw for 2 years now and loves it!
I have used Direct Services twice now and both times they have done a great job and really stand behind there product. Thanks again for fixing the clutch on my Silvia haha i haven’t stalled it since : )

Got my 2j clutch rebuilt through Drew & Jerry at an awesome rate, then recently bought a hi-torque clutch for my hilux through these boys at a great price too. Friendly staff behind the desk & in the workshop, easy to deal with, wont take my business anywhere else. 5+++ stars.
Made a call at 11am Monday from Darwin for a clutch for my Patrol. They had it assembled with fresh paint (can still smell it), packed up and out the door that day. Was delivered to my door this morning. This kind of service is unheard of in the NT. So again, thanks guys! Legendary!
From the unreal service from Jerry and Drew to the twin plate clutch they provided in a day, these guys are the most profession service orientated business I’ve dealt with in the performance car industry in years. Many thanks guys brilliant service and brilliant product keep it up. Highly recommended.
Thanks heaps Drew and the team at direct clutches after months of trying to find a new wet clutch for my sons go kart you were the only ones to come through with the goods. Awesome service I was kept informed daily and am absolutely rapt with the finished product. I hope you enjoy the video I am trying to post as much as my son enjoyed making it. Cheers

Drews’ customer service at Direct clutch was excellent. Clutch feel is amazing for a NA motor with 850nm. Shipping was next day from Brisbane to Newcastle. Would recommend Direct Clutch anytime!!!

Got a 500hp commodore, standard clutch didn’t like it so Drew and the boys supplied and fitted one of their recommendations and absolutely loving it.
Just had the clutch replaced in my BT50. They were recommended to me by a friend. It was cheaper by $500 then other quotes with a little bit of extra work. Called me throughout the process for any update. Very very fast. I couldn’t believe how quickly it was done. Nice blokes. Don’t waste time an money looking elsewhere. Highly recommend them. I would have my car towed to them if I lived 3 hours away.
Customer service , product and turn around time was absolutely amazing. great crew will definitely be coming back. keep up the great work 👌
Awesome service by some really switched on blokes. Could not regard them any higher for there expertise and service

Fantastic service from start to finish!! They rebuilt a clutch for me and went above and beyond with advise. The clutch was delivered to them Wednesday, rebuilt by Thursday and delivered to Perth by Monday! They even chucked in a nice free T-shirt. Impeccable service guys! Highly recommend!
Thanks to the Jerry and the guys at Direct Clutch for always helping me out over the last 8 year with building the right clutch for all my needs. from my v5 STI to my gu patrol there clutches have never let my down. By far the best clutches.
Would like to thank the guys for refurbishing my twin plate originally built by them and making it much more streetable. the VL drives amazing once again and has reignited my passion for driving it.
