365 gt Clutch

Hello all!

On my 1968 365 queen mother, the clutch shudders if I don't give it enough rpm's.
Is this normal?
thanks

With all things working correctly, 365 should have enough torque to allow smooth take-off (and up shift) with minimal, if any, throttle operation.

It can do that, depending on driver technique and the type of clutch that's installed.

Is it a newly installed clutch? Does it do it less when warmed up?
