You are running full open diff mode with VDC off. VDC is not reducing wheel spin or traction loss. The center diff is doing its job, which is deviding up the power to the wheels that can make the best use of it.

Thanks for the rez i was looking for what models and what ratio I needed to get a VLSD from.
I autox and sometimes i forget to turn the vcd off and i did experience all of the above. Vcd off is much better I do dislike my open diffs on corner exits though.... terrible loss of grip/wheel spin of inside wheel. I also do not like the central viscous unit in the winter. So slow to lock up...
