    So, have had some minor transmission lag recently. Noticed the engine likes to brake a lot when coasting, and that there seems to be a half second delay between punching the pedal and proper throttle response.

    Turned off VSC and A-LSD today (press and hold VSC off button for 3 - 5 seconds) and things seemed much more responsive driving around.

    Possible that some of these shifting issues are related to traction control?

    Someone else said that it didn't make a difference for them, but like you I have had the same experience of not having the transmission lag when the Traction Control is off.
