I have a 2004 Renaultsport Clio 182. I was toying with it yesterday and had the car in first gear, clutch flat to the floor, and I revved the car. At around 6000 rpm I felt the clutch bite and the car pull forwards slightly.

What is the cause of this?

    Friction drag as the gap is only small and the fluid (air) between the plates can transmit power if the speed is sufficient.

  • No - as the clutch plate wears the gap gets bigger...
