2014 se dct better clutch replacement questions?

hi guys, so i have a 2014 ford focus se with the dct. ive already had ford replace the clutchs once, they covered it. but wont do it again. so is there a higher performance or stronger clutch someone knows of that fits in my dct tranny? i feel the clutch disengaging under full throttle in first and second gear, and when you first take off you can feel it slipping and catching repeatedly. this is probably due to my excessive beating off the cars transmission, ( 7000rpm shifting, 3500rpm launching, excessive burnouts, etc etc.) im not interested in beating the car anymore. but im interested in knowing if there is a proper clutch upgrade kit for the dct? i can do the clutch job myself, im a mechanic. but i dont want to spend 400$ on another set of oem clutches if theres a better one out there. if anyone knows of a clutch upgrade for the DCT transmission, please let me know here or give me your feedback. thanks guys

Nothing I can do at all? Just get another set and hope for the best? When I got my clutches replaced, I didnít have the dct tuned yet. And I overheated the trans a few times shortly afterwards trying to spin the tires at a standstill. Also didnít give the clutch any time before flooring it. You think if I got another set of oem clutches and maybe a new actuator, broke the clutch in by gently driving for a hundred miles or so, then it would be alright ? Another issue Iím having with the car since I got the clutches replaced was shifting to second gear slow speed like a normal person, when it hits second, the Rpms donít drop and it feels like a dead spot with clutch just not grabbing until I let off then every other gear is usually fine

I can't even get my local dealer to LOOK at my clutch because the extended warranty expired in 15 or 16
