It would be nice to not have the big issue on my mind when I'm wanting to go.
And now that I'm running larger section tires it's even more an issue.
Know where you're coming from. Babying the 915 gets old. Problem is, it's a high-stakes craps game and the house will always win. Eventually.

The compromises on the 915 clutch to hold the power are a massive PITA if caught in stop-go traffic, too.

Even if you spend $$$ on building a high-spec (WEVO bits, LSD, spray bars) 915 and treat it well, it'll still find the weakest link and do stuff like this from time-to-time:

G50 is an expensive conversion - and one you'll probably never see a realistic return on.

If you drive/keep the car long enough, the G50 should eventually work out cheaper than fixing prematurely worn/broken 915's, clutches, gearsets and other ancillary stuff.. Take a while though....
'77 S with '78 930 power and a few other things.
