Montana , hey I hear you.My solution so far is to "not soft pedal " the throttle from a dead stop and a bit more throttle seems to get by that clutch shuddering.

Another thing I don't like is the fact there is no manual downshifting at all, there is L (low but if you slip it into low at 15mph it seems to pull the trans right into first and not into second or third. Same also if you started in L it doesn't upshift to 2nd or 3rd, it stays in 1st....that is a poor design.....I wish they had gotten the trans with the sport designation. MJEFF
