Differential Gear

Every system offers it owns benefits and disadvantages, and although the more complicated systems are generally excellent they have an attached cost 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 Differential Gear 940x310The yellow-colored 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 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 offered torque through an individual wheel when needed in the many extreme of circumstances.

With the TVD exerting more level of resistance onto the exterior wheels clutch, it tricks the system into diverting more torque through it – increasing the 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 corner, as the automobile passes the apex and starts to accelerate out it’ll 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 grip.

However, rather than releasing the resistance upon both tires 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 power to the outside encourages the vehicle to turn into the part sharper and reducing understeer.
