06 manual transmiision problem

I purchased a 06 GTO from a dealer. When I let out the clutch slowly in !st gear and give it a little gas the car shutters. It only does this taking off from a stop. In any other gear or a rolling stop it is fine. Under full acceleration its great. I asked the dealer where I bought it to look at it and they told me it was an after market performance clutch and they do not warranty it. They stated it worked fine.

Sounds to me like maybe they installed the clutch but didn't turn the flywheel. That will sometimes cause the issue you are discribing. Try to move both pedals faster, release the clutch and hit the gas faster then you are cause it only shutters when the clutch is slipping, so the less you can make it slip, the less it will shutter. It may drive out of it and stop after a while.

Sounds normal to me. Performance clutches grab and don't like to slip, you'll get the shutter/chatter thing going on from a stop.

06 clutch problem

Thanks for the input. My other car is a 97 Z28 6 speed with a Zoom kevlar/ceramic clutch, pressure plate etc. It takes off like a rocket and shifts like butter. I am going to change out the shifter in the Goat. Any input?

I just installed a Centerforce Dual friction clutch set and a GMM Ripshifter in my car, and it now does exactly what your describe. A little bit of "shudder" before moving, like it's going to die. Get the RPMs up a just a hair more and it won't shudder anymore.

I concur with the GMM Ripshifter. I have the street version, and it is a thousand times better than the stock shifter.
