No, mine doesn't do that. You can see the snatch go slack as I drive out & up the bank. I was also rocking the car back & forwards heaps at the start & no slip then either

I've been meaning to check if mine has an cover over the inspection hole in the bellhousing. I know Dulagarl was wanting to put one on his...
Well I was trying to drive out causing the revving but the clutch was fully released and the wheels were not spinning.... Not a good feeling.

It is more caused by water coming in through the bottom of the bell housing and there is a large hole there with an exposed spinning starter gear which just sucks water mud and what ever else in.
