Differential Gear

Every system offers it owns benefits and disadvantages, and although the more complicated systems are generally superior they have an attached cost that far exceeds the simpler systems.

The downside to the system is it is very complicated and very expensive, and typically only used for racing/track applications because of its high speed cornering potential.

Torque Vectoring Differential 940x310The yellow arrow highlights the torque transfer occuring through the part, produced by the artifical level of resistance being exerted by the TVD on the outside wheel. This allows for better acceleration out from the corner while the car’s turning Differential Gear abilitty is definitely increased.

A Torque Vectoring Differential is capable of channelling 100% of the available torque through an individual wheel when needed in the many extreme of circumstances.

With the TVD exerting more level of resistance onto the exterior wheels clutch, it tricks the machine into diverting more torque through it – increasing the total amount power which can be applied and reducing the understeer skilled under acceleration out of a corner.

By continuing to use this level of resistance through the corner, as the automobile passes the apex and starts to accelerate out it’ll continue to override a normal multiway-LSD – which would again interpret the faster moving outside wheel as slipping and divert torque during acceleration to the within wheel, which it perceives as having more grasp.

However, instead of releasing the resistance upon both tires a TVD proceeds to activate the clutch on the outside wheel just – increasing the resistance experienced simply by that wheel and making the machine channel more torque through it. This imbalance of power to the outside encourages the automobile to turn into the part sharper and reducing understeer.
