Differential Gear

Every system has it owns coupling China benefits and drawbacks, and although the more complicated systems are generally superior they have an attached cost that far exceeds the easier systems.

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

Torque Vectoring Differential 940x310The yellowish arrow highlights the torque transfer occuring through the part, generated by the artifical resistance getting exerted by the TVD externally wheel. This allows for higher acceleration from the corner while the car’s turning abilitty is usually increased.

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

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

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

However, rather than releasing the resistance on both wheels a TVD continues to activate the clutch on the outside wheel only – increasing the resistance skilled simply by that wheel and making the system channel more torque through it. This imbalance of power to the outside encourages the automobile to turn in to the corner sharper and reducing understeer.
