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 1984 Camaro parts. The 1984 Camaro was a Third Generation F-Body Camaro, spanning from years 1982-1992. 1984 included the Sport Coupe, Z28 Sport Coupe, and Berlinetta. 1984 saw a shift in focus onto the Berlinetta, which received a futuristic instrument panel featuring a digital readout for speed, an electronic bar tachometer with vertical readout, and movable control pods flanking the instrument displays. The Berlinetta interior also included a roof console, which became purchasable options for the Sport and Z28 Sport Coupes. 1984 Camaros were equipped with GM-specified “fourth generation” steel-belted radial tires. This was the last year for a four-speed manual transmission, and it was available with 4-cylinder engine models only. The ride quality in Z28s was softened slightly in 1984. Lastly, a visor mirror became standard equipment for Z28s and locks for removable T-tops were added mid-year.
