From what I've read, the system still functions but due to the diff it's effects are much reduced. Though that is on the Focus ST where the e-diff has to work much harder from the 2.0 having so much torque.

I might've stated it a bit misleadingly, I meant that it is fully functional but it has less need to intervene with the braking function to reduce wheel slip. I would guess that for track use it would make a fair difference in lap times by reducing braking heat. Though you lucky people who have STs and have tracked them don't seem to have any brake heat issues. Adding power might be where the LSD diff makes it's benefits felt the most.What if I give my Fiesta a lot more torque to deal with?
I don't think I want to be the one to test this but if it does mess with the vectoring, a front brake upgrade might bring it back.
I hope so any way.
Ford Torque Vectoring Control continuously balances power between the front wheels for exceptional control and handling when you're accelerating through corners.
How does it work?
Ford Torque Vectoring Control uses the braking system to imitate the effect of limited-slip differential, constantly balancing the distribution of engine output between the driven front wheels to suit driving conditions and road surface. When accelerating through a tight corner, the system applies an imperceptible degree of braking to the inside front wheel, so that more engine torque goes to the outside wheel, providing additional traction, better grip and improved vehicle handling.
The system is designed to delight experienced and enthusiastic drivers but also to provide less-experienced drivers with confidence and a better sense of vehicle control, especially in difficult driving conditions.
