My limited understand from reading about dual mass flywheel is that it's function is to smooth out the power spikes from the engine to limit jack hammering the transmision and the drivetrain and to prevent power spike reflection from damaging the engine.
based on the torque of the engine and masses of the dual flywheel, I'm guessing that the effective rpm range for dual mass is during clutch engagement and that at higher rpm, the spring coupler is not changing.
my naive thinking is that at some rpm and higher, dual mass flywheel is no longer "dual mass" and becomes one mass.
am I all wet?
