Default Clutch woes

So is anyone able to spin their rear wheels from a stand still, in the dry, without the clutch just sitting there burning?
I went for a brief exit from some traffic lights the other day, and the clutch slipped like hell, followed by a nice burning smell

Trying to see if anyone does a performance clutch for the 827 or legend, but so far cant find anything

I must admit to not trying very hard! It does spin in the wet reasonably easily but I assumed that as it has really good traction due to the engine over the wheels and large rear tyres it would be hard so didn't push it.

Never had any clutch burn in 6K, it was a new clutch and I have yet to fit he lightened flywheel.
