Yep, if you're a Jeep or a drifter. Limited slip differentials are most popular amongst tarmac/rally racers. They permit enough slip for the wheels to turn at different speeds around the corner radius they're following without allowing all of the torque to leak out through the least loaded wheel.

I often mull over the possibilities of an LSD in a slot car, but figured that the weight penalty alone would offset any potential handling gains.
