Valeo Single Mass clutch for R53 mini
My R53 has been making some irritating rattling sound for a while and it was not too long ago when I realized that the clutch started to slip when accelerating in higher gears.
And yes, it is not really recommended nor usual to accelerate without downshifting at a lower RPM and this is the reason why I have kept postponing the clutch replacement. I had absolutely no issue driving.. well besides the rattling noise in traffic lights.
I have two manual cars running on a dual mass clutch and, at least for me, they don't seem to be that durable.
This is the main reason why I have decided to go with the single mass set up
So far, I have driven the car for a month or so and here is what I think about it.
-It is noisier
-There is more noticeable vibration
-Faster response (probably has to do with the weight)
And I am so far liking the new single mass setup.
