I see from the GM Media site that the new V has a "dual-disc clutch". Can anyone tell me what a dual-disc clutch is and looks like? I've had a hard time finding anything about it on the web. A picture/drawing would be awesome (or maybe the page from a service manual).

Two discs in series that act as a clutch surface, thereby allowing a smaller diameter disc to be used with comparable or greater clamping force than a larger single disc.

Allows for greater holding power with less pedal effort.

So are both discs connected the the transmission input shaft? Or only one of them?

Both are connected at the same time. Remember, it's a dual disc clutch, not a dual clutch transmission.
