I know of the idiosyncrasies of our vehicles being rear-wheel drive and their behavior in the rain and slop, but mine has been started something recently that I've never experienced before. When the road is wet and I'm starting from a dead stop, the wheels feel like they slip to the point of making a chatter (instead of spinning completely, they are making intermittent contact enough to move forward slightly) on the 1-2 upshift; when it does this, I start to lose control of the rear end. I had to have the driver's side rear wheel bearing replaced a few months ago. Could the shop have messed up something? What else would cause this? It even seems to happen when I take it easy on the gas. Is this something that I just have to deal with?

Thanks!

Do you have a limited slip rear? It will chatter like that with slippage

it's wheel hop, your tires are losing a bit of traction in the rain

I have trac-lok and i've never had any chatter when the wheels spin. Only time i've ever had chatter was when i would turn corners. A gear oil change fixed that.

Thanks for all of your ideas and opinions. BTW, my car does not have the limited-slip differential.

Apparently I have exact the same issue after PA Super Streeter tranny install.
What's the solution? Is it inevitable for high performance trannies or I can do something about that?
