This times eleventy billion.....a VC is only marginally better than a open diff and is best in inclement conditions (ice/rain) where there is potential for large speed differentials due to 100% slip conditions on one side or the other.

It's ok on track. Decent-ish on national level autox courses that are fast and sweeping like mini road courses and useless on local autox courses with lots of fast transitions and minimal steady state.
