In answer to your questions...I have had the car since March! I have an advanced driving license in the UK and can drive my ass off! I've never had this problem before - it's definitely not operator error - no offence taken!!
Feathering the clutch does help but this is needed way too much and at too high revs - when I start off in first the car starts jumping at 2000 rpm - if I push any harder it gets worse - if I feather the clutch I have to feather it all the way up the gear - so what I have to do is pull off in first and then one second later I have to put it straight into 2nd gear
Is this a better explanation?
Normally with clutch slippage you get some slip in other gears - this is definitely only first gear
Could the chip I put in have affected the ECU - when I rang the guy who sent it to me he said it sounded like the car is in "limp mode" but what is limp mode and how does it affect the car?

I'm convinced now that its not the clutch as it doesnt feel like slip at all - it feels like the engine is being starved of fuel or air (or both) - I had a Fiat years ago that had clutch slip and this is completely different
I have now checked all the hoses etc and cleaned out the throttle body - I will have a look at the air filter at the weekend - could this need replacing?
Actually now that I think about it I dont think the ramp is the problem - I think that giving it more gas to get up the ramp is the problem
She just hates any gas in 1st gear it seems - any solutions or has anyone other than eboy solved/had this problem?
This is a biyatch - especially when some turd wants to race you at the lights!
