F20 (MUE)/1S51 - Questions about differential

Hello, with my VIN
I have this car for almost 2 year now, and I have done a stage 1 to get around 190Hp and 400nm.

I'd like to have more fun when it rains, and I tried some burnout. But I have problems with my differentials.
Only one wheel is spinning in some burns, so I'm searching on the net what I can do.

Can you please teach me some terms about this, what to search?
Some tutorials maybe?
What is my actual differential? I think it has auto-lock. What auto-lock type is it? How does it work? Can I force it?
What can be change and how?

I don't know where to begin, I know the basic function of this piece and its name.

My next step will be to install a line-lock, then change this differential (or my clutch if it fails first ).
I know it can be welded locked, but I don't want to do this for now (maybe in 4-5 year).
Appreciate 0
