2015 camaro ss 1le clutch issue?

Hi, im having a issue with my car, ive searched for someone having a similar problem but havent seen it yet.

Basically whats happening is, when i start my car, back out of drive way.. ill put it in 1st gear to drive down street, when i begin to accelerate it acts as if i dumped the clutch andthe car bucks as if you dumped the clutch, it does it for a good little bit and ill push clufch in and shift into 2nd and from then on the car drives perfectly fine.

The clutch at idle you can hear a slight chatter but i believe its been like this since i bought the car... i noticed maybe a very faint tapping type sound from shifter area when i am in a lower gear and let off gas pedal?

Im not sure what this could be, the dealer i take my car to normally isnt of any help anymore as i did headers+tune a few weeks ago...

Yeah I actually have the same symptoms. I believe it is purely the nature of the car and not something actually wrong. I've read several threads about this and it's led me to believe it is normal. My car bucks a bout starting off and I hear an odd clicking coming from the pedal when I let off the gas going under 15mph. Probably has something to do with the short shifter/T56 trans combo or something to that nature. I wish I had more knowledge on the subject but alas I do not.

Never had this issue, and would not consider it normal. If your car wasn't stock, I'd suggest having the torque management tables looked at to see if something is amiss there. You'd need a tuner to look into that. Does the bucking happen only when the car is cold?
