Worked with it and finally i'm on the right way.
After trying the stock springs which resulted in bogging down low i decided to play a bit with the springs until the Hard ones arrive.
I just cut the soft/longer spring to about the same length as the hard/short one supplied with the 2007 version.
Results=night and day.
Bogging was almost gone...and that little left allowed me to get on throttle sooner. I don't know if it was the clutch or not but after a split second of engaging the car was almost doing wheelies, it gave way too much punch just after that little bog. Engine temps also went down to normal.
I'll get back to this as soon as i get the Hard set.

I use the large shim found in the diffs.
Is made of steel and doesn't oval so easy.

I have run this clutch without the shim, it works fine without it. In fact, when the clutch was first produced, there was no shim included with the clutch.
