The coast clutch doesn't do anything when you're pressing the accelerator pedal in reverse. If you're coasting in reverse I could see how it would chatter.

I don't understand why. Once again, in reverse the coast clutch is only doing something when coasting. If you're in first gear with the OD OFF light not illuminated the coast clutch isn't even applied.

Same as first. If you don't press the OD OFF button the coast clutch isn't applied. It isn't doing anything, it's just along for the ride.
