Every system offers it owns benefits and drawbacks, and although the more complicated systems are generally excellent 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 for its high speed cornering potential.
Torque Vectoring Differential 940x310The yellow arrow highlights the torque transfer occuring through the corner, produced by the artifical level of resistance being exerted by the TVD externally wheel. This allows for higher acceleration out of the corner while the car’s turning abilitty can be increased.
A Torque Vectoring Differential is capable of channelling 100% of the obtainable 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 Differential Gear tricks the machine 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 apply this level of resistance through the part, as the vehicle passes the apex and begins to accelerate out it’ll 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 within wheel, which it perceives as having more grasp.
However, rather than releasing the resistance upon both tires a TVD continues to activate the clutch externally wheel just – increasing the resistance skilled simply by that wheel and making the machine channel more torque through it. This imbalance of capacity to the outside encourages the vehicle to turn in to the corner sharper and reducing understeer.
