Differential Gear

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

The downside to the system is it is extremely 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 corner, produced by the artifical resistance becoming exerted by the TVD on the outside wheel. This enables for better acceleration out of the corner as the car’s turning abilitty is certainly 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 exterior Differential Gear wheels clutch, it tricks the system into diverting more torque through it – increasing the amount power which can be applied and reducing the understeer skilled under acceleration out of a corner.

By continuing to use this resistance through the corner, as the automobile passes the apex and begins 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 inside wheel, which it perceives as having more hold.

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