Last night, in light rain, I was in third gear doing about 60km/h and punched it. Soon as the wheels broke traction the car wants to jolt to the right every time ? Is this normal? I don't remember it doing this before.

Thanks!

Check your wheel bearings. It sounds like you could possibly have a bad rear wheel bearing.

Actually, it's not normal. It' s supposed to fishtail to the left, lol!

Seriously, that is perfectly normal behavior (and dangerous) for the Torsen to kick out to the side under power at 55-60 MPH. It's caused by the rear wheels turning at different speeds. The Torsen is not appropriate for a high powered turbo car that has a sudden surge of torque at speed.

I put up with it for years until I put a clutch type LSD (TRD) in there. With a clutch type LSD, it spins straight.
