Differential Gear

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

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

Torque Vectoring Differential 940x310The yellowish arrow highlights the torque transfer occuring through the corner, produced by the artifical level of resistance being exerted by the TVD on the outside wheel. This enables for greater acceleration out from the corner while the car’s turning abilitty is definitely increased.

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

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

By continuing to use this resistance through the part, as the vehicle passes the apex and begins 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, instead of releasing the resistance on both wheels a TVD continues to activate the clutch on the outside wheel just – increasing the resistance experienced by that wheel and making the machine channel more torque through it. This imbalance of power to the outside encourages the vehicle to turn into the part sharper and reducing understeer.
