After setting everything up and balancing my gear I tried a few slews to see how it was working. 
After viewing your video again, I don't know that it is reasonable that your equipment is balanced correctly as the counterweight is all the way up the counterweight shaft. Can you check to make sure the RA axis is balanced when the clutch is completely loose and post a picture of that?  Thanks
