Every system offers it owns benefits and drawbacks, and although the more difficult 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 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 part, coupling China produced by the artifical level of resistance being exerted by the TVD externally wheel. This enables for greater acceleration out from the corner as the car’s turning abilitty is certainly 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 resistance onto the outside wheels clutch, it tricks the system into diverting more torque through it – increasing the amount power which can be applied and reducing the understeer experienced under acceleration out of a corner.
By continuing to use this level of resistance through the corner, as the vehicle passes the apex and begins to accelerate out it’ll 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 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 capacity to the outside encourages the automobile to turn into the corner sharper and reducing understeer.
