Sorry the quality is so crappy...

I'll probably have some follow-up videos later - possibly from the outside of the car if I can find a secluded area? But essentially, depending on the situation my clutch will slip anywhere from 1/2 to over 5 seconds when going uphill.

I also apologize that I didn't feel like editing these videos to make them shorter.

(Not sure how loud this is, so check your volume before playing them)
Here is chatter into second and sustained chatter in 4th gear:

More chatter in second:

EDIT: And sorry the noise of the camera and tires are pretty much the same pitch as the slipping clutches. I wish you could could just test drive my car in-person.
