Stock clutch causing shifting issues is common, causing exactly the symptoms you describe. Aftermarket clutches are the cure, I have an Exedy Hyper Single which solved all those issues but with the GT500 you might need more than that. I'm sure other guys will chime in on recommendations for that car.
