Differential Gear

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

The downside to the machine 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 resistance getting exerted by the TVD externally wheel. This allows for better acceleration out from the corner as the car’s turning abilitty can be increased.

A Torque Vectoring Differential is with the capacity of channelling 100% of the offered torque through a single wheel when needed in the most extreme of circumstances.

With the TVD exerting more resistance onto the outside 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 experienced under acceleration out of a corner.

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

However, rather than releasing the resistance on both tires a TVD continues to activate the clutch externally wheel only – increasing the resistance skilled simply by that wheel and making the machine channel more torque through it. This imbalance of capacity to the outside encourages the automobile to turn into the part sharper and reducing understeer.
