Re: Q2 - Is it really worth it ?
Assuming that one wants to go fast..
..with two equal modestly talented drivers (one with Q2, one without) the Q2 driver would exit the corner at a higher speed.
With very talented drivers the speed difference between the two drivers would be even *more* pronnounced due to the fact that both cars would experience extra body roll caused by higher cornering forces - which unload the inside tyre.
An LSD will still be able to transmit power to the wheels, but without one you will have to wait much longer relatively speaking before you can apply throttle even with your very talented race drivers foot.
Of course you can choose to drive at a speed that doesn't cause any potential wheelspin at all, its not much of an issue for the 4 cylinder petrols but for the V6's and JTDs it is..
Never mind cornering though, even straight line acceleration in low in slippy conditions would be better with a Q2, no matter how talented you are - its simply a matter of optimizing mechanical traction.
Its not traction control.
Traction control by itself is nowhere near as effective, it obviously can work togeher with Q2, but there isn't that much need for traction control if you have Q2 because at this point a sensitive right foot probably would be getting the best available traction.
I'm not a doctor - but I really do recommend braking later
