500 RPM at idle. This is not the issue. Release the clutch in reverse propotion as you increase the fuel. I have driven manual sport cars my entire life, mostly camaros and Vettes. This was the hardest clutch to get used to though.

The idle RPM is ECM closed-loop commanded to 550 RPM with random injector no-pluses to reduce emissions. This is what causes the little shake.

Although I didn't have any clutch release trouble at 550 RPM, I did raise the idle to 800 RPM. The engine accels quicker and it sounds meaner.

My launch method is to hold some throttle constant then release the clutch. That way you can control the engine load with clutch only - and don't have to coordinate clutch and throttle.

Hey Dans2ss,
Mine took awhile to get used to, mostly because I did not want to give it too much gas from a dead stop. $ months later, all is right with the world and the clutch too.

I too had a 2006 GTO M6. I'm not really seeing any major difference in the shifting of the two.

Mines around 600rpm, and I can let the clutch out slowly without gas and it will move right along without stalling. And that's at 6000ft altitude(according to Wallace racing, 77hp loss at 6000ft.).
