OK, but it slipped every once in a while going hard up a hill (turn 5) towards the end of a few sessions.

Stock carbon puck /slave cylinder with a Tilton spacer/guide tube ahead of the bearing

There's a welded nut on the footwell firewall; a long bolt with 2 nuts on it lines up perfectly with Tilton clutch pedal. We dialed in the throw of the pedal by lifting the rear wheels, putting it in gear, and limiting travel after the wheels broke free from depressing the pedal. Maybe 3/4" to 1 inch pedal throw total!

It took quite a beating this weekend. I think the slipping problem is easily solved. The engine bay was absolutely bone dry, so the oil must have been on the flywheel instead this time ;-))
