I disagree. You are NOT using a 'sort of active passive mode of RAC'. In that case you would have installed Oracle RAC Clusterguard I. Obviously, you didn't.

Now you don't have any benefit from using RAC, only disadvantages. You are flushing your money in the toilet. Please shut the second instance down, and send me your money directly.
You should have set up Dataguard instead of RAC.

To confirm my observation you only need to do the following

alter session set events='10046 trace name context forever, level 12';

select /*+FULL */ * from <any table>;

You will observe
<db_file_multiblock_read_count> global cache cr requests after each scattered read
in your trace file.

This feature has been removed in 10g.
