Jonathan Davis explains it very well here

The main point is that adding clutches effects both sides of the diff, so you will get a tighter lock between the rear wheels accelerating and braking. So you might be able to get a slightly better exit, but the car won't turn in as well.

Andreas Wilke's Fast Mexico setups are worth a try to see the effect on track. Most of his setups use 60/60/1, but at Mexico he uses 60/60/2 or 3. Drive the track with his clutches, then just with one. You should notice the benefit of the extra clutches coming out of a couple of turns, but also that some corner entries become harder.


I mostly use one clutch, apart from the BRM and Honda which I tend to drive with silly diffs just for a bit of fun :) .
