Differential Gear

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

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

Torque Vectoring Differential 940x310The yellow-colored arrow highlights the torque transfer occuring through the corner, produced by the artifical level of resistance being exerted by the TVD externally wheel. This enables for greater acceleration out of the corner while 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 most extreme of circumstances.

With the TVD exerting more resistance onto the exterior wheels clutch, it tricks the system 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 apply this level of resistance through the corner, 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 moving outside wheel as slipping and divert torque during acceleration to the inside wheel, which it perceives as having more grip.

However, Differential Gear instead of releasing the resistance on both tires a TVD proceeds to activate the clutch on the outside wheel just – increasing the resistance skilled by that wheel and making the system channel more torque through it. This imbalance of capacity to the outside encourages the automobile to turn in to the corner sharper and reducing understeer.
