Default Torsen 1 vs Torsen 2

Ive done quite a bit of research on the type 1 and type 2 torsens.
I understand the torsen 1 has better bias when accelerating, and t2 had better when decellerating. Which diff do you prefer? Can you tell a difference, Ive only driven miatas with type 1 rear ends.

I think all of us have OCD. LOL.

We all want to know every detail. LOL

I doubt there is enough differance to notice on stopping. Brakes would probably help more. I would like to know which is better for launches.

I don't know the specifics or have a comparison between the two, but don't know the importance of bias in braking when you're backing the car in at 80+ mph, off camber, over a crest.

I know that most people who autocross like the type 1 more than the type 2. I am about to switch from a type 2 to 1 because of this. Emilio from 949 was saying it was superior as well for autocross. Don't really know if it applies to other situtations as well.

one biases better during acceleration. the other during braking.


you don't want to lift when in a corner with a type I. I'd rather have the type I.
