Clutch slip

I am getting to drive my new Italia more and more as the weather improves in this part of the world, still not driving it enough!

With that being said I am noticing that in some cases the 1st gear seams to slip during take off, typical symptom of clutch slipping. Back and forth rocking as power engages and disengages. It happens in auto and manual but not all the time just sometimes when taking off and immediately turning. I am unsure if this is an issue due all the electronics as there may be some tire slippage or a genuine clutch issue. I will have my dealer to look at this but I wanted to gather some feedback if any is available.

Any similar experiences? This is the first dual clutch I own so I have no references.

Thanks for your feedback

I suspect you are feeling the clutch engage and disengage, to balance vehicle speed and engine rpm.

No problem, I certainly hope at least that I am correct and you're not experiencing a legitimate problem. Only way to know would be to replicate it with someone that routinely spends time with these cars riding with.
