exedy twin plate help

had my evo for a while now, not had a twin plate clutch before and im paranoid the clutch is on its way out...

When you release the clutch, it sort of bites very low on the peddle but you release the clutch all the way to the top to get it to bite fully

im contemplating getting new plates but if its normal behaviour of the clutch then hopefully some feedback will stop me worrying every time i drive it.

cheers in advance

i have found the biting point sometimes feels like it changes on twin plates. If its biting right at the top, it might be a warning its coming to replating time. Travel at a steady spead say 30, then accelerate in 4thor 5th, see if you can feel it slip as the turbo comes in

How many miles has it done?

i have done that test and it didnt slip at all.

i have no idea how many miles the clutch has done, the recepit from when it was fitted does not have the miles on it sadly.

I dont think these twin plates do the miles some people seem to see from single plates, but if its not slipping, I wouldnt worry till it does. If it aint broke and all that
