    Question knock/kick from centre-rear when releasing clutch too soon

    Car - WRX STI 2000 RA
    Mods - TBE, suspension
    Other Known issues - clutch is slipping needs to be replaced.

    Question -

    When I release the clutch very quickly and press the accelerator at the same time, I feel a big knock/kick/ coming from centre-rear of the car. There is a knock sound also.

    When I drive it normally, i.e. release the clutch normally, dont accelerate to fast, then there isn't any issue.

    Is this something to do with the rear center differential?

    What could be the cause and what do you think I need to fix?

    Thanks

    Not many of us know about that model.

    On the newer cars it is a common issue. Differential mount & bushings might help. Is there a rear carrier bearing on those?
