It is the case, they DO have a wet clutch. Thats why you have to use the proper oil, one with no friction modifiers and one that has good shear properties.
And Vash they changed the red cap to a gold one and changed the formulaton a bit from what I understand. Most have reported good results with it though some haven't.
As far as switching to full synthetic in all reality you could do it your first oil change, but I would probably wait until your second or third.
My first change was at 100 miles, then around 600-800 and then at 2k I switched to synthetic.
