the buzzing on coast down is angular slop between the floater/pressure plate and the cover. When you are accelerating and letting the clutch out, the assembly winds up against one side of the "teeth" or "splines" in the clutch assembly and when you let off the gas, you're changing the loading against the clutch teeth/splines so that the variations in torque and vibrations cause them to rattle against the clutch cover. The stock clutch doesn't have a free floater or pressure plate. The PP is mounted solidly to the clutch cover and has nothing to rattle against.

i have one of these on the race car and find it awesome! has made my starts so much better and it is repeatable time and time again. who cares about a bit of noise! the weight of the unit makes gear changes almost instant! here is a start i like

Hung out to dry at the hairpin but **** happens. all cars infront were on slicks and in a different class. i was on r888's and got a class win. even if i was pushing way too hard trying to catch that evo.
