When big names in the industry like McLeod Racing and TREMEC Transmissions join forces to create a one-stop solution for drivetrains, you know it’s going to be something epic. Performance clutch systems and brute manual transmissions go together like peanut butter and jelly, which is why the duo has teamed up to offer both applications under one roof for all your swapping needs.
That’s right – you know McLeod Racing for its clutch kits which are known for taking a high-horsepower beating – and now, the company offers TREMEC transmission swap kits good for more than 1,000 horsepower.

“We’ve worked together for a very long time. Joseph Dederichs (of Dederich Motorsports) and the folks at TREMEC are great people,” said Bob Scheid of McLeod Racing. “They know what they’re doing, and they’ve helped us out with a lot of projects. It just made sense that if we were going to do anything with a manual transmission supplier, we wanted to do it with somebody who could take our learning curve and erase it, and that’s what Joseph does with it. He’s great at what he does, and we have a special relationship with TREMEC that allows us to grow, and it works for both of us.”
For every transmission, there is a need for a clutch, and vice versa; the great thing about McLeod Racing now carrying complete TREMEC transmissions packages is that enthusiasts can easily match the right clutch and trans for their application. “Stay tuned here with us for more information,” Bob says. “We have big things coming for PRI next month.”
