That makes sense, thank you. My TCC is a ring about 9 inches in diameter and 1/2 inch wide. I calculated that the surface area of the clutch is about 13.3 square inches.

In my opinion the TCC seems quite small to me considering the size of a manual transmission clutch for the same car, especially since it's a wet clutch. Unless the hydraulic pressure holds the TCC with way more force than a manual trans clutch is held?
