AWD advantage is only in the first 60 foot. After that, it is at a disadvantage. Higher drivetrain loss and more weight. Also, weight distribution also favors RWD better.
This is definitely true since the GSF and RCF are RWD with LTVD correct? Most competition with torque vectoring rear differential are AWD so at least Lexus has got this market cornered with the RCF and maybe the IS500/F?

Correct. RCF back in the day was the first RWD car with TVD. I have had it for 3.5 years and TVD is amazing. Depending on the mode selected, it really makes the car behave totally different and it is very natural/seamless with the steering inputs.
