200mm pressure plate, diaphragm type with release cone. Rated as indicated by the part number. New solid spring steel diaphragm. Crossbars are welded to the cover to stop cover flex. Super duty connecting links for maximum life. Works great in a street car with a stock VW disc, such as GB 094 or GB 104. Gary Berg used this combination in his street car that runs low 12-second 1/4 mile times.
It is only a little stiffer and no more strain on the cable when you follow Berg's exclusive copyrighted installation instructions. Not uncomfortable and it is very smooth. We also have this poundage pressure plate (with our steel shoe) and GB 102 3-puck disc in our racecar with over 20 years of trouble free service. (*) SW 10#
