I disagree with it only being useful on track days. I had no LSD on my Fiesta ST but wanted it on my Puma ST. If you like to hoon around it definitely adds value to the car, also just on B-roads. In my case the LSD makes up for everything I miss from my Fiesta.
Old comment I know,
I agree with you, not just a track day thing. Power can be applied surprisingly early mid corner, or round roundabouts for an almost sling shot exit.

One drawback is the occasional squirrelling from the front end (Like really bad tramlining) when the roads are poor and on the throttle (Roads are terrible in Essex!!) Not an issue on smooth surfaces.

Yes - I was caught out by this the first time it happened - never had a powerful-enough car before! - and it is something I have to be careful about when pulling away and turning as I am in country lanes for miles around here, and particularly at this time of year when the roads are covered in sticky wet mud (from tractors and large lorries digging up the sugar beet).
I also find the mud flies very high onto the Puma - perhaps the 19" wheels are a reason - but today I have cleaning splashes off the roof!

Just mentioned this on my thread about Recaros being dropped in 2022, but just to post here as well for the sake of completeness. My order has now been bumped to a 2022 car meaning I don't get the Recaro seats. I don't actually even have an ETA yet either - not even a finger in the air one for 6 months time.

I now have an estimated build date of 14-Jan. Have been warned to take it with a bit of a pinch of salt till nearer the time.
