- Our flexplates are SFI-29-1 approved for drag racing and made in the USA. The .130'' thick plates are manufactured from the highest strength alloy steel that exceeds OEM specifications. Each is die-stamped to ensure an exact fit every time. The ring gear is double welded to prevent separation from the flexplate in high-rpm applications. Final assembly is zinc dichromate plated for a long lasting appearance and to help ward off any degradation from the elements. A final 100% inspection is performed before any flexplate is placed in the packaging to assure total customer satisfaction.

ARP Flexplate Bolts
- Flexplate and Flywheel bolts play an important role in the performance and safety of race cars and street machines alike. That's why the fastener experts at ARP have developed special bolts that are far superior to OEM hardware. ARP offers two styles of Flywheel/Flexplate bolts: High Performance and Pro Series. They are both forged from aerospace alloy and heat-treated prior to thread rolling and machining. Both feature an exclusive, flat, 12-point head design and larger than stock shank diameter for increased strength and improved flywheel register. The popular High Performance Series is rated at 170,000 psi, and the premium grade Pro Series, originally developed for NASCAR Winston Cup competition, has a 190,000 psi rating. Complete with washers (and nuts where applicable).
