Only handful if not driven properly. Carrera GT you do not give any throttle when starting from standstill, even on steep hill. Just release brake and slowly release clutch; the car's electronics control the take-off. If you give it throttle while letting out the clutch it has a fit and bucks like a bronco. It's very counter-intuitive.

It's also a carbon clutch in that btw small diameter I believe 7.25".

I can do this relatively painlessly with this clutch, which I think says a lot for its usability. The other big difference is how fast the revs respond during a shift (which I love), but I assume this has more to do with the SMFW.
smaller diameter clutch also plays a role. Less rotating mass and it is not as far away from the center of rotation which helps the moment of inertia.

My clutch conversion is now complete. The hydraulic assist is gone, replaced with a BBI slave cylinder, GT2 master cylinder and GT2 spring. The triple carbon clutch, smfw & wavetrac lsd are still working great. I am extremely happy with the final result. All work was done by Driver Source in Houston. Can not say enough about Steve and the team at Driver Source!
