You won't get any wheelspin out of a 320 ft-lbs, turbocharged, AWD car unless your tires are complete garbage. Nothing is wrong. If you want wheelspin you should have gone with a 2wd car.

I've never driven a car that has a clutch with a different engaging point EVERY time u shift. The stock shifter's throws were madd long, so I got the Kartboy SS which feels better. I'm going to grab a stronger clutch and bushing and see what that does. Car has 23,000 miles.
I don't know what you're trying to fix here, but i don't think changing out the clutch or bushings is going to fix the problem as i understand it. I would say bleed the clutch and go from there. It makes no sense that if your clutch engages at a different point every time, but still holds fine, to replace it with a stronger clutch. It's just wasteful.

And just to contribute:
2008 WRX
45K miles
30K at stage 2
3k at 370whp/320wtq
I'd say about 1200 of those are track miles.

Tranny and diff fluids swapped after EVERY track day. I also have the cusco solid motor/ tranny mounts, which should help keep things aligned better, but transfers more shock to the gearbox/ motor.

Still original clutch, holding fine, and tranny is going strong.
