hey, i have an smg with about 55k and experience the same judder symptoms in 1st gear. It isn't the bucking bronco type of jerk which is a separate feeling where the car just wants to take off. So far i've reset the smg computer by holding in the paddles for 5 secs while driving above 50mph and putting the gear in neutral, i've recently had the computer remapped at the dealer. I've tried engaging the gas slowly from a stop, slamming the gas from a stop, and letting the car warm up for 20 minutes and i still get slippage. I thought for sure it was the clutch but one member said it would happen through all the gears if that was the case. I'm gonna clean my maf sensor today with crc cleaner and hope that works. If you correct the problem please let me know what you did that worked. Thanks, Mike
