    Start at 4:30 and watch 5 or 6 turns. Listen as I accelerate out of the corners. Bump up to 8 minutes. Another good example. It happens a lot on the slower corners that require significant load on the clutch to pull through the corners.
    Most of these I am down to 3rd and definitely WOT and you can hear the rpms go up and down and back up again through the corner exit.
    I smell no clutch material at all. It doesn't seem to be getting worse. Doesn't do it at all in any daily driving situations. Just here on track.

    Thoughts?
    Thanks!

    Seemed like it was only happening on right hand corners, and pretty much at the same relative point in the corner exit? At least I didn't hear it on the lefts I saw. It sounded more like wheelspin to me than clutch slip. If you have a clutch type diff perhaps the right side is going south?

    Does not sound right. Is that a new clutch?...old clutch?...how many miles does it have?

    Unknown clutch details. The car has almost 29,000 miles. I assume it is stock. We went cw day 1, ccw dat 2. It happens both ways.

    I also assume stock because I do have some higher RPM lockout issues

    Sounds like you will need to look into replacing your clutch. Have you bleed clutch fluid/brake fluid lately? Lots of good info on this forum about clutch replacement. Seems like Exedy is getting some good press here.

    I replaced brake fluid but did not bleed clutch. I had no orher symptoms other than what you hear on the video. I was planning in a new clutch eventually. Looks like sooner rather than later.

    Any suggestions on steel vs aluminum flywheel?

    I am having the same issues. While in third gear in tight turns feels like slipping high rpm’s and the car will not hook up. Did You change your clutch. Did it solve the issue
