Default does a turbo work better with low RPM or high RPM on tight corners?

turbo has nothing to do with your ability to corner.. but in general a turbo works better at high rpm's

Turbos typically do not kick in until the higher RPM range.

any turbo is going to work better at high rpms no matter if youre going around corners or going in a straight line, the more exhaust you get flowing, the higher the compression(boost) is, and the higher the boost the the faster you go...usually turbo/superchargers dont do much for low end torque/hp, but they are extremely effective after 2500-3500 rpms

A turbo develops its boost at high RPM's. It has nothing to do with cornering.

Turbo gives you a boost in acceleration by using exhaust gas. It does not help you on corner. However, most people keep their rpm high (around 3000rpm) during a corner is because it can keep the turbo running and after the corner the car can produce a max. acceleration instantly(since turbo is on the whole time)

turbo chragers do not kick in about 3000rpm. a supercharger might work onlower rpm's. so iwould say higher rpms

First off turbos work best in the later half of the rpm range, The properly designed system anyways. So if your in a race with tight corners keep your rpm up. Superchargers work best to provide low end torque, and decent power through the rpm range.

cornering doesnt have anything to do with a turbo. but in the high rpm you get the most power
