Recently in chat, a discussion arose about a dual mass flywheel. I am blissfully ignorant regarding how a dual mass flywheel actually functions and what the delta is between a dual mass flywheel and a standard flywheel.
I understand the basics of a flywheel and why you want one on your vehicle but diving any deeper than that is not within my knowledge base.
Can someone please illiterate the delta between the two flywheel types?
Are there other types of flywheels that deserve an honorable mention?
Are there benefits to having a dual mass flywheel?
Please post a diagram or other visual learning aid to assist in my enlightenment.
