Re: Mechanically modding the GT...what would you do?
Diffs do help traction, but also optimize torque transfer between the wheels while cornering under power.
Normally for a standard corner once you have made the apex, you smoothly increase the throttle, every corners different though, for a constant radius corner you might keep the throttle pretty steady like you say.
For a fast corner where you are on the power all the way through a diff can makes a big difference to how tight your line can be.
Under hard cornering the diff will be able to send much more power to the loaded wheel, i.e. transferring it from the unloaded inside wheel.
This "helps" the car around the corner, and also avoids the inside wheel spin-up that causes sudden understeer.
Even for normal enthusiastic road use you will find the car understeers way less under power.
It probably would raise the handling of the GT beyond most peoples limits with a decent coilover kit..
I'm not a doctor - but I really do recommend braking later
