I have this rarely, usually I blame my self.
Andrey - I attribute what you're describing to the slow responsiveness of the drive-by-wire throttle. Happens to me sometimes. I was asking about something different. The throttle is responding but there is a definite mechanical shudder from the clutch/flywheel interface when the clutch is partially re-engaged (as I'm taking up the clutch pedal travel). This also takes place during relatively low-RPM launches.
