Video: Formula DRIFT’s Ryan Tuerck Discusses ACT Clutches

Becoming a professional drift car driver takes skill, practice and tons of dedication, but beyond that, it takes quality automotive parts that won’t let you down on or off the track. No one knows that better than 27-year-old Formula DRIFT driver Ryan Tuerck. And because of the demands he puts on all his vehicles, he only trusts Advanced Clutch Technology to get him to the finish line. Find out why in the video above.

Hooning behind the wheel has always been a passion for Tuerck, and he has solidified himself as one of the best up-and-coming drift drivers in the sport. But to get to the top, Tuerck has had to rely not only on his skills and adventurous side, but also on hardware that can take a beating. One such component is the ACT clutch in both his street car and his track machine, a Nissan “240LS” equipped with a custom-stroked CBP Corvette LSX engine.

ACT has been in the business of producing performance clutches and flywheels for the sport compact, domestic and diesel truck markets since 1994. With a commitment to quality and customer service, the company has become one of the leading producers of performance clutch products in the industry. This commitment to excellence is seen throughout the company’s product offerings as well as a number of racing championships secured by dedicated customers.

 

While he drove a Nissan for the 2012 DRIFT season, Tuerck is no stranger to domestic drift cars. In 2011, he campaigned a fifth-gen Camaro for Gardella Racing. Image: Gardella Racing via LACar.com
