At HFM Dot Parts, we are looking to improve the Toyota 86 in every way we can.
After listening to some common complaints, we found that the Clutch Pivot ball was described as weak and prone to breaking; especially when changing to aftermarket pressure plates which is common for racing vehicles.

After completing a hardness test on an OEM Pivot Ball we determined that this was in fact the case, with a test result of only 20.14 HCR.

A quality knife set is between 59.5 – 61 HRC, just to put that into perspective. Basically, the higher the number the harder the material. The harder the material, the stronger the item, but keeping in mind that it also makes the item more brittle and prone to snapping so finding the right balance of strength and flexibility is key.

We are working on creating a replacement part to combat the breakage that could be potentially dangerous.

Our Clutch Pivot Ball will be made of CR40 (4130) Chromoly Steel. The same steel used in high end bicycle frames, firearms & vehicle clutch and flywheel components.

Don’t replace your Pivot Ball with its weaker OEM part when you can have strength beneath you for the same price.

Our RRP – $18.00

*Update*
Our Pivot Ball replacement parts are in! At the same price as the OEM part and 40% stronger you can combat this common issue.
