From what I have heard, the fastest lap in the Tillsonburg buggy "A" main, that car didn`t have em.

More twirling parts to speed up and slow down.

I'm not sure if this helps, but aparantly the difference between the losi diffs and the others is that they aren't effectively like a switch (either locked up in the tight state or down in the loose state - no in between) like many of the other types of diffs before them. They transition more slowly and smoothly (aparantly) and are supposed to be not as abrupt in their action, causing less of the unwanted characteristics that people have experienced over time with the other diffs.
The main goal of this type of diff ( i believe) is to provide better turn in off power (when its 'light') and then better on power exit (when its 'heavy'), so you're effectively running two different diffs at the same time.

I think it also comes down to personal preference. Mike Truhe and Adam Drake said they run the smart diff in the center almost all the time and then the smart diff in the front in most applicaions but not all. More of a tuning thing.
