RAM Clutches’ modest beginnings date back to 1972. From the back room of an OEM clutch rebuilding operation in Canton, OH, John Norcia and his then partner, Ray Bickar, began designing and building better race clutches for a group of local competitors, who were fed up and demoralized with their clutch performance. At the heart of this program lay the radically new RAM three-paddle ‘Cleaning Lady’ clutch disc. Until this time most racing clutches were constructed of organic materials, which provided neither the durability nor the consistency needed for competition. Though Ram forged ahead with a new poly-encapsulated spring design—pioneered and patented in 1978—the three-paddle disc evolved into the current six-paddle design, and continues to be reintroduced by various clutch specialists long after its original introduction in 1976!
Today with the resurgence of factory muscle cars, RAM is heavily involved in providing clutch solutions such as the Street Dual and hydraulics systems that allow for major modifications to the vehicle, yet still provide good street driveability, which is the premise today for all RAM Street-Strip clutch systems.
Rick’s Camaros is your one-stop shop for 1975 Camaro parts. The 1975 Camaro was a Second Generation F-Body Camaro, spanning from years 1970-1981. 1975 included the Type LT Coupe, Rally Sport Coupe, and Standard Coupe. While the styling was a carryover from the previous year, 1975 changes included a larger, wrap-around rear window design to reduce “blind spot” vision problems, radial tires becoming standard equipment, and optional power door locks. The Z28 was dropped temporarily due to tightening emission standards. 1975 was the first year to require unleaded fuel, which then brought a restricted fuel filler neck and a screw-on fuel cap. The Rally Sport option was not available at the start of 1975 production, but returned midyear as the RPO Z85, differing from previous Rally Sport packages by not featuring hidden lamps or the snout grille, and including a distinctive paint and stripe package.
