That is NORMAL on a OS twin disc... Kinda the same thing you hear when someone on a Ducati pulls up next to you at the stop light.. NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT...

Thats normal, crazy sound the first time you hear it though. All twin plates ive ever driving have sounded like that. i have one that is 2x the size of my mazda's one thats in a dumptruck at work.. sounds like the trannys gona come though the floor when you use the clutch on that one
