Differential Gear

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

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

Torque Vectoring Differential 940x310The yellow-colored arrow highlights the torque transfer occuring through the part, generated by the artifical level of resistance becoming exerted by the TVD externally wheel. This enables for greater acceleration out from the corner as the car’s turning abilitty is definitely increased.

A Torque Vectoring Differential is with the capacity of channelling 100% of the available torque through a single wheel when needed in the the majority of 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 amount power that can be applied and reducing the understeer skilled under acceleration out of a corner.

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

However, instead of releasing the resistance upon both wheels a TVD continues to activate the clutch on the outside wheel only – increasing the resistance experienced by that wheel and making the machine channel more torque through it. This imbalance of capacity to the outside encourages the vehicle to turn into the part sharper and reducing understeer.
