Default Rear Lift or Worn LSD?

Hi people...was unsure of where to post but since this happened during autox I figured this was appropriate...

I ran with WDCR SCCA yesterday on a relatively new setup, which includes (main mods):

EJ207/STI drivetrain (JDM 6 spd - B7KA trans)
RCE Black, Ohlins FPS
Potenza RE71 235/45/17
Whiteline F/R sway bars (24mm I believe..)
-1.5 camber all around or thereabouts

The issue: when I would get on the gas hard in low and mid speed corners, it almost felt like there was some slipping (as if I were slipping the clutch - which it was not) before the car would actually put power down and accelerate. I'm sure it cost me time, but I'm more concerned with why?! Trying to figure out if it was because I was lifting a wheel or because maybe the front LSD is worn...

See the vid below...the worst slipping happens in the slaloms on the back half of the course, particularly right after the carousel. Let me know what you think...thanks in advance.

Lifting a rear tire, lose the rear sway bar.

Agreed, you're lifting a rear tire, happens all the time. Try putting your stocker back on or disconnect this one for a run and tell us what you think!

Stock rear bar should solve it.
