turbo friction plate bluey metallic coloured
my f28 friction plate has a shade of metallic bluey/purple colour to it does this mean i should change the clutch and is this affecting performance via clutch slip.
if it looks anything like this then replace it
oddball difficult to see in the pic but it does look like the surface is rough will that be affecting performance.
is the other clutch what they refer to as a helix is it any good for a turbo and is it similar to a normal clutch in terms of driveability.
the surface was pitted and distorted, its was blue and scorched also.
top is a helix paddle clutch, slightly stiffer than normal, and a bit more savage when biting.
whats the clutch like in traffic ive been told you dont have a biting point as such its all or nothing
also does a helix type clutch cause the flywheel to wear down quicker
it is a bit on/off switch but its still sprung so not totally rabid. i presume as its harder material with more friction it has to wear the fly out quicker.
Blue spots are signs of localised overheating. Not good.
when i had the shafted clutch on the car it juddered like fook engaging slowly.
blue hot spots whats the worst case scenario that it can cause until i get time to drop the box and bang in the new clutch and quaife
worst case it judders and or slips.
