2001 Outback Sedan HD 3.0 VDC - front driver tire locks briefly

it sounds like torque bind.
do you have a flashing AT Temp light on the dash at start up?
i have not heard of this happening in the VDC before,
but i have not heard that it doesn't happen either.
the 01 VDC does not have a FWD fuse.
but it does have a VDC off fuse you can put in.
it is located in the fuse box under the hood,
the fuse should be labeled on the lid,
it is the one closest to the passenger seat, i'm pretty sure.
put a fuse in and see what happens.
i don't know enough to know if this should or will help.
but since there is no FWD fuse,
it is your best shot to diagnose your problem., maybe.
are all of your tires rthe same:
the tires need to match.

I suppose this could be a front diff issue.
also, has the car ever had a rear diff swap?

There is no record of a rear differential replacement.
