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 machine is it is very complicated and very expensive, and typically only used for Differential Gear racing/track applications because of 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 externally wheel. This enables for greater acceleration from the corner as the car’s turning abilitty is usually increased.
A Torque Vectoring Differential is capable of channelling 100% of the offered torque through a single wheel when needed in the many extreme of circumstances.
With the TVD exerting more level of resistance onto the outside wheels clutch, it tricks the system into diverting more torque through it – increasing the amount power that can be applied and reducing the understeer skilled under acceleration out of a corner.
By continuing to use this level of resistance through the part, as the automobile passes the apex and starts to accelerate out it’ll continue to override a normal 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 grasp.
However, instead of releasing the resistance on both tires a TVD proceeds to activate the clutch externally wheel just – increasing the resistance experienced 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 part sharper and reducing understeer.
