Twinz is correct.

As to which is faster, there was a bump on the practice course at nats right on one of the apexes. If I nailed the gas hard enough I'd trigger the e-diff pretty hard, such that...

500/600 is my current T2 setup (autocross application FYI). It does rotate better than my old 400/500 setup, to the point that I actually took some rear bar out. Definitely worth a shot.
