You are correct about performance ... I was referring to the fact that with a two node cluster, if you lose one node, you have a stand-alone and RAC is no longer giving you the ability to failover or load balance. If you go to three nodes you can lose one, whether due to failure or for maintenance, and you still have a cluster.
