I'm not trying to state the obvious here, but what do you mean by "take
Are you launching your car? Or rather, dumping the clutch somewhat? If so,
that would be the tires loosing grip with the asphault momentarily, creating
an audible "squeak" and not moving the car anywhere, which could be
improperly extrapolated as "slack" in the drivetrain.

Please elaborate.

sized "spinners"?

Sorry for the length. I partially wrote extra to allow the message to post.
