I put down 150+ autocross runs in the 1.5 years I owned my 09 and I guarantee you I experienced all the glory that is the open diff with the VDC switch set to 'off'....there was no transfer of drive torque left to right via individual braking of inside wheels. Well why would I turn off VDC then? Well the stability control takes yaw and lateral acceleration as inputs and cuts fuel AND brakes individual corners which drastically slow you down in transition intensive autocross. So no nannys other than ABS is definitely much faster from an autocross perspective even if it brings the full realization of the open differential into focus. Brake late and trail brake and be disciplined on the throttle on turn exit and it's not terrible .
