No, SMG is not duaql clutch. It is single clutch. It is exactly the same flywheel, clutch, rpesure plate, transmission as the manual, just operated by hydraulics and a computer.

SMG in manual mode only downshifts to prevent lugging if you were to step on the gas hard. You should definitely be downshifting before that.
