Just bought a 00 with 50k; Siver/Black loaded...

All the links are dead for the M5VDS; Anybody have the vids?

Q: Ive had the clutch slip a couple times; down shift and nail the throttle to pass, the tach goes clockwise faster than the car goes forward, typically its new clutch time. I've read here that the clutch is undersized, is this something I have to learn to deal with having almost 400 ft lb trying to pretzel the (stock)clutch plate?

I bought the thing from a dealer, have a 1 month 1k warranty plus I vought a 2yr extended...Should I persue this?
