Nope, car is at normal operating temp.

Far from slipping..

I think any car would be far from drivable, if the clutch was slipping with low RPMs and low throttle

The only explanation I've been able to find it it's due to the "drive by wire"- there is so much power and this engine is so high strung it want to go full throttle. Light throttle and you feel every little adjustment. Curious too if anyone else has this, or a better diagnosis.
Wow, from day one? Sorry to hear that. But Sorry, I dont like your explanation because this is something that just started recently. So at least in my case, my drive by wire has handled my high strung engine just fine...

I can deal with the problem/issue/thing... but its just not quite normal. No passenger has notice this "jolt" thing, and if they do, they'll probably think that I'm manipulating it myself..

oh well for now
