How do I know if my clutches are slipping?

Just like the title. Iím tuned in stage 2 bm3 with downpipes and drop in intake. Tried doing a pull today in 4th at 80 and it feels like the engine free revs for a split second, then catches and goes. Not sure if itís the tires losing traction, turbo lag, or a slipping clutch? Never got any clutch over heat errors or any of that. Car is 2014 dct car with 38k miles and was just tuned recently for about 300 miles now.

Your clutches are slipping. You will basically see an rpm rise when you give throttle and the car won't go anywhere for a second or so. Usually happens in the lower gears before the higher gears. And you can get slippage with as low as 600wtq sometimes, depending on if you are launching the car hard or not. These DCT's don't like a lot of torque. Time to pull the transmission and upgrade the clutches.

I have to do some more testing because temps were at 45 degrees outside on summer tires. Iíve watched vids of the dct clutch slipping and it seems like their rpm stutters when it happens. When it was warmer here in MI last week I could nail it in 3rd and it would just hook. Iíve never launched the car and have always tried to be above 3500 rpm before going full throttle.

There's no doubt your clutch is slipping. My clutch immediately started slipping after 100 miles on stage 2 tune at 45k miles.
