In case I'm plain wrong here say it in a nice way please.

I'll chime in...
I think he picked those points because you can see the g drop (clutch disengaged), then rise(engaged)

but you may be right...the ripples may be the clutch slipping due to slower engagement or the computer adjusting it and the throttle for the actual shift may be much long...when the large cycles end and they settle down to the pre-shift level
